Attorneys for Donald Trump have accepted service of a subpoena issued by the Jan. 6 select committee demanding documents and testimony from the former president by next month.
A person familiar with the matter confirmed that attorneys for the former president agreed to formally receive the committee’s summons. Matthew Sarelson — an attorney with The Dhillon Law Group, which is representing Trump in his dealings with the committee — accepted service of the subpoena on Monday. A Trump spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Jan. 6 panel wants Trump to provide relevant documents by Nov. 4 and appear for a deposition by Nov. 14, though neither deadline is likely to hold. Trump has given no public indication about whether he will challenge the subpoena in court, a process that would all but ensure he never testifies before the panel.
