Jan. 6 panel subpoenas filmmaker with access to Trump family

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol is probing new sources for information on former President Trump, his children and former Vice President Mike Pence, issuing a subpoena to a documentary filmmaker.

The subpoena to Alex Holder, first obtained by Politico, asks not only for footage he captured as the riot was unfolding, but also interviews he conducted from September, 2020 and onward as he documented Trump’s reelection campaign.

That includes interviews with Trump, Pence, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.

It also specifically asks for “any raw footage pertaining to discussions of election fraud or election integrity surrounding the November 2020 presidential election.”

The subpoena was sent last week, as the committee began public hearings that included footage of depositions with Ivanka Trump and Kushner.

The panel ended its last hearing with a message to those that have not yet spoken to the panel, asking those who may have information to please step forward.

The committee did not respond to request for comment on the subpoena.
