January 6 committee to subpoena Trump's lawyer

The select House committee handling the Capitol riot probe intends to seek testimony from John Eastman, former US President Donald Trump's attorney, The Washington Post reported, citing Committee Chairman, Representative Bennie Thompson (pictured).

"It will happen," said Thomson, going on to note that the subpoena could still be avoided if Eastman cooperates voluntarily.

Eastman had outlined the legal strategy for overturning the election results in two memos presented before the former head of state in an Oval Office meeting on January 4, two days before a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building, which the former head of state was accused of inciting.
