January 6 ANNOUNCEMENT – Big Change Coming!

The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack has dropped its subpoena of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the software vendor, Salesforce. The subpoena originally was looking for any information that would have related to fundraising emails sent prior to the insurrection.

On Friday it was reported that both the RNC and Salesforce had been notified the previous week of the subpoena being withdrawn. The information that was originally requested was deemed unnecessary for the investigation. According to an email sent by Douglas Letter, the House general counsel, the information was no longer necessary because of the stage the investigation reached. The data was originally requested on February 23, 2022.

Salesforce is the owner of the RNC’s chosen fundraising platform.

The House committee had originally subpoenaed both as they were trying to determine whether the committee and the Trump campaign had solicited donations over the allegations that the 2020 presidential election was stolen. These related to the allegations of widespread voter fraud that former President Trump started talking about following his defeat. A Jan. 6 committee spokesperson had previously said that the committee was trying to understand the impact that this messaging might have had and how it could have related to the Capitol attack.

The RNC filed a lawsuit to stop the subpoena in March. In their lawsuit, they said the request was violating both their First Amendment and Fourth Amendment rights according to the Constitution. A federal judge previously rejected the lawsuit in May.

However, an appeal court did temporarily stop the committee from obtaining the requested records.
