The House of Representatives committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol voted 9-0 on Thursday to subpoena Donald Trump, the Republican former president.
The panel, which held perhaps its final hearing before the midterm elections on Thursday, has indicated it holds Trump responsible for fomenting the violence with election fraud claims following his loss in the 2020 presidential race.
Trump, who has maintained that his loss to Joe Biden was due to widespread fraud, has denied inciting the action at the Capitol.
The panel has two Republicans on it, including highly vocal Trump critic and panel vice chair Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
