This SHOULD be interesting….
One doubts Trump will show up….
If he delays the summons past Jan.1 ?
And the Republicans gain a majority in the house as expected?
The subpoena would be withdrawn….
The panel knows this of course….
In a wide-ranging, four-page document issued alongside the subpoena, the panel directed Mr. Trump to produce an extensive list of documents and communications — including phone calls, texts, encrypted messages and email — related to nearly every aspect of his effort to invalidate the 2020 election between the dates of Nov. 3, 2020, and Jan. 6, 2021….
The committee cited numerous examples of former presidents, including John Quincy Adams and Gerald R. Ford, who testified before Congress after they left office. But the Supreme Court has never decided a case in which a former president refused to comply with a congressional subpoena, and the panel made no mention of cases where presidents have resisted legislative inquiries.
Ms. Cheney, the committee’s vice chairwoman, said this week that if Mr. Trump refused to comply, members of the panel would “take the steps we need to take.”
But it was unclear what the committee could do, particularly if Republicans win control of the House in next month’s elections. In that case, G.O.P. leaders, who fought the formation of the inquiry, boycotted it and have denounced it at every turn, would be all but certain to allow the panel to dissolve, as it is scheduled to do at the close of the current Congress in January.
The subpoena to Mr. Trump requires him to turn over documents by Nov. 4 and to appear for a deposition under oath on or about Nov. 14 that it says could last several days…..
