image for House January 6 committee gives Trump more time to turn over subpoenaed documents

The House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol, released a statement Friday giving former President Donald Trump more time to turn over documents it subpoenaed but offering little explanation as to why the extension was granted.

The panel subpoenaed Trump last month seeking a wide array of documents by 10 a.m. Friday and for Trump to sit for an interview under oath beginning on November 14 and “continuing on subsequent days as necessary.”.

The committee also said it “received correspondence from the former President and his counsel in connection with the Select Committee’s subpoena” but did not provide additional information.

CNN has reached out to Trump and his attorneys for comment.

Lawyers for Trump had accepted service of the subpoena from the committee as of October 26, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Trump has criticized the committee but not said whether he would comply with the subpoena.

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the vice chairwoman of the committee, previously said the committee was “in discussions” with Trump’s attorneys about testifying under oath in the probe. »

Of the 201 teens enrolled in the trial, 133 teens with obesity and one who was overweight were treated with semaglutide, while 67 were given a placebo. »
