The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol asked the former President if he would testify under a subpoena, but he didn't reply.

One day after the committee voted to subpoena him for testimony about his role in the events of January 6, Trump wrote a letter to the chairman.

With all of the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on what many consider to be a Charade and Witch Hunt, and despite strong and powerful requests, you have not spent a single moment on examining the massive Election.

The document includes photos meant to show the crowd size at his rally, as well as a state-by-state breakdown renewing baseless claims of election fraud in five states.

The campaign concluded that there was no widespread fraud in the election. Courts ruled against Trump 62 times when he tried to challenge the election on fraud claims.

After the committee voted unanimously to compel testimony from Trump, his response did not comply with the subpoena.

In the case of prior subpoenas, a list of topics the panel wishes to discuss in a formal deposition as well as a breakdown of documents and other evidence must be turned over.

Lawmakers on the panel stressed the importance of hearing directly from Trump during the vote.

The vice chair of the committee said they were obligated to seek answers from the man who set this all in motion. Every American has the right to those questions.

The former president is going to have a fight. MarkMeadows, Trump's chief of staff, is one of the people who went to court to block the subpoena.

After a lengthy back-and-forth between committee lawyers and representation for those who have been subpoenaed, some of those who have refused to comply have ended up in legal trouble.

In order to make a formal criminal referral to the Justice Department, those who have refused to comply will have to be held in contempt of Congress.

Since the committee began its work, the House has done that four times, but the Justice Department has only acted on two of the referrals. The man is waiting for sentencing next week.

The committee has done little to enforce its subpoenas in other cases where it has subpoenaed high-ranking figures. It's not clear if they will subpoena Mike Pence.

Much of the information already presented by the committee was presented in Thursday's hearing, understating that Trump's declaration of victory on election night was premeditated, that he knew he had lost the election, and that he wanted to join his supporters at the Capitol.

In his letter, Trump repeats many of the same claims he made after the riots. He claimed that he had given the go-ahead for thousands of National Guard troops to defend the Capitol, but his former defense secretary has denied that.

He said that the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania were questionable because of suspicions about the movement of votes. After audits and recounts, the results were certified in each state. According to testimony from Justice Department officials, they were able to debunk or explain each of the claims made by Trump.

The Justice Department has prosecuted many members of the mob for their actions that day, but Trump closed his letter to Thompson by defending the rioters as "great American patriots."

The people of this country do not agree with Liberty and Justice for some. The election day is coming. We want answers about the crime of the century.
