Jan. 6 committee subpoenas Trump Jr. fiancée Kimberly Guilfoyle

The congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot issued a subpoena Thursday to Kimberly Guilfoyle, the fiancée of Donald Trump Jr., for information relating to last year’s attack on the U.S. Capitol.

“Ms. Guilfoyle met with Donald Trump inside the White House, spoke at the rally that took place before the riot on January 6th, and apparently played a key role organizing and raising funds for that event. The Select Committee is seeking information from her about these and other matters,” the panel’s chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said in a statement Thursday. “We expect her to comply with the law and cooperate.”

Guilfoyle is one of the closest associates of the Trump family to be subpoenaed by the House committee. Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of the former president, is in talks with the Jan. 6 committee to voluntarily participate in an interview but has not been subpoenaed.

In a letter to Guilfoyle made public Thursday, Thompson said, “President Trump met with you, several members of his family, and others in the Oval Office the morning of January 6, 2021, which was also when he last spoke with Vice President Pence (by phone) prior to the joint session of Congress to certify the results of the Presidential election.”
