Trump's children and aides refused to testify before
Donald Trump's former aide, Mark Meadows, is sought after by US lawmakers for refusing to testify for the Capitol Riot assaults.
On another level, former US President Donald Trump's kids have refused to testify in a corruption case against their father.
New York's top justice official has subpoenaed ex-President Donald Trump, his son Don Jr., and his daughter Ivanka in an investigation into the family business dealings, a court filing revealed on January 3.
Secret meetings days before the riots
Former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham provided the House select committee with more details than expected regarding the Capitol attack, which was led by former US President Donald Trump.
Apparently, Trump held secret meetings in the White House days before January 6, according to 2 sources.
Grisham was Melania Trump's chief of staff, and she gave the committee new details about what Trump was doing before the Capitol attack.
