House Capitol Riot Committee Subpoenas Leaders Of Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, 1st Amendment Praetorian

Politico reports:

The Jan. 6 select committee on Tuesday subpoenaed the leaders of the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, extremist groups that responded to Donald Trump’s call to descend on Washington and played central roles in the attack on the Capitol.

The House committee issued subpoenas Tuesday to Proud Boys Chairman Enrique Tarrio and Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes, as well as both of the organizations they lead. It also subpoenaed a lower-profile far-right group, 1st Amendment Praetorian, along with its leader, Robert Patrick Lewis.

The Justice Department has already indicted dozens of members of the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers for participating in the Capitol siege and charged leaders of those groups with conspiring to stop Congress from certifying the 2020 election.
