Former Trump Aides Dodges Pelosi’s Subpoena

Former White House deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino has evaded attempts to deliver papers subpoenaing him on behalf of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot.

The committee subpoenaed him last month along with other top Trump aides, including Steve Bannon, Mark Meadows , and Kashyap Patel. But while the other three seem to have received their papers , Scavino is nowhere to be found, even as the Oct. 7 deadline to comply with the committee’s request to submit documents approaches ahead of the Oct. 15 deposition.

All attempts to serve Scavino have been unsuccessful, sources told CNN. The committee is hoping to gain an understanding of the White House’s communication strategy leading up to the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally by investigating Scavino’s “knowledge regarding the communications strategy of the former president and his supporters leading up to the events on January 6,” according to a letter addressed to him from the committee.

GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who alongside Rep. Liz Cheney is one of two Republicans on the House’s Jan. 6 commission, criticized efforts to dodge the subpoenas.
