Jan. 6 committee subpoenas Alex Jones, Roger Stone and other Trump allies

By and , Rolling Stone

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol issued subpoenas Monday to high-profile allies of former President Donald Trump, including Roger Stone and Alex Jones.

The committee is looking at Stone, a longtime adviser to Trump, and Jones, a conspiracy theorist who claimed that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut in 2012 was a “giant hoax,” in connection with a rally near the Capitol shortly before a pro-Trump mob stormed the building in early January.

The committee is demanding records and testimony from three other people, as well: Dustin Stockton, who the committee said assisted in organizing a series of rallies after the November election; Jennifer Lawrence, who was also involved in organizing rallies, including the one that preceded the Capitol riot, according to the panel; and Taylor Budowich, who organized an advertising campaign to encourage attendance at the Jan. 6 rally, the panel said.
