- Ali Alexander predicted that Trump would be subpoenaed by the House committee on January 6.
- The committee has already subpoenaed dozens of Trump officials and allies in recent months.
- Trump did not prevent the committee from accessing White House files using executive privilege.
A leading organizer of the Jan.6 “Stop the Steal” rally predicted that former President Donald Trump would be subpoenaed by the House committee investigating the Capitol Riot.
Ali Alexander, who participated in an eight-hour closed-door deposition to the committee on December 9, told InfoWars on Tuesday that he believed Trump would be summoned following efforts to connect him to the activities of rally organizers.
“They want a connection – that’s what my lawyers call it – between the people who have been violent, wrongful or vandalized, then you and me and the activists,” Alexander told the host of InfoWars and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
“So they can hook it up to a Trump staff member, then to Trump. Folks, Trump will be subpoenaed by this committee. Latest news. Trump will be subpoenaed fully by this committee.”
The “Stop the Steal” rally organized in part by Alexander had immediately preceded the Capitol riot, which left five people dead.
Trump had told a crowd gathered at the rally that the 2020 election was stolen from him and encouraged them to walk to Capitol Hill and “fight like hell.”
In recent months, the committee has summoned more than 100 people, including dozens of Trump officials and allies.
They include former Trump White House officials Stephen Miller and Kayleigh McEnany, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone. Alex Jones himself was also subpoenaed.
Trump sought to invoke executive privilege to prevent the committee from securing White House records, but that attempt was rejected by a federal appeals court.
A series of six subpoenas issued earlier in December included Ohio Congressional candidate Max Miller, a former Trump White House and campaign aide. They appeared to indicate the committee’s efforts to establish direct links between the rally organizers and Trump’s inner circle.
Miller helped organize the rally and met with Trump in the West Wing to discuss who would speak, Insider’s Eliza Relman and Sonam Sheth reported.
“Some of the witnesses we called today apparently worked to organize the rallies on January 5 and 6, and some appeared to have had direct communication with the former president regarding the rally at the Ellipse just before the attack on the United States Capitol, âsaid the Democratic representative. Bennie Thompson, the committee chairman, said in a Dec. 10 statement.
