US policy: Attack on Capitol: Committee of Inquiry summons Trump

As announced, the investigative committee into the attack on the US Capitol has summoned ex-President Donald Trump. He is to hand over requested documents by November 4 and be available for questioning from November 14, according to the letter published on Friday.

It is still unclear whether Trump will follow the subpoena. The House of Representatives committee decided a few days ago to subpoena Trump.

The subpoena could remain a symbolic step. There is a process for bringing defaulting witnesses to court for contempt of Congress. But the committee is running out of time: a new House of Representatives will be elected in November, and a new Congress will convene in January.

Five people died in attack

Trump supporters stormed the US Parliament building on January 6, 2021 - right after the Republican's appearance. The then President stirred up crowds with false claims that his victory over challenger Joe Biden had been stolen through cheating. He called on his supporters to protest in front of the Capitol, where Biden's election victory was about to be officially sealed. Five people died as a result of the attack.
