According to Politico, in January, Roger Stone made a speech to Trump supporters, urging them to abandon the election results.

The U.S. House of Representatives Committee investigating the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021, subpoenaed former Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone and other supporters of the 45th US President. This was reported on Tuesday by newspaper Politico.

According to her information, in January of this year, Roger Stone made a speech to Trump supporters, urging them to abandon the election results. Earlier, a former Trump adviser was accused of actively participating in the dissemination of false allegations about the falsification of the results of the US presidential election held in November 2020. In addition, on April 17, 2021, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Roger Stone and his wife Nydia Stone on charges of tax evasion in the amount of $ 2 million.

The staff of the office of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, who investigated the interference attributed to Russia in the 2016 American elections, accused Stone of trying to obtain materials stolen by hackers from WikiLeaks that could damage Trump’s rival during the election campaign – Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Last December, Stone was pardoned by Trump’s decree.

The Committee demanded that the people who received the summons provide by December 6 all records relating to the attack on the Capitol on January 6. “The Committee is requesting information about rallies and subsequent marches to the Capitol <…>. We need to know who organized, planned, paid for, and received funds related to this event, as well as what connections the organizers had with officials in the White House and Congress,” Chairman of the National Security Committee Bennie Thompson said. Testimony is scheduled for next week.

According to the newspaper, a series of subpoenas is related to the financing and organization of rallies on January 5 and 6, as well as a march to the Capitol. In addition to Stone, subpoenas were sent to Trump’s official representative Taylor Budowich, radio host Alex Jones and rally instigators Dustin Stockton and Jennifer Lawrence.
