The House committee investigating the deadly Capitol invasion said Monday it issued subpoenas to Republican political operative Roger Stone and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, along with three others allegedly connected to the events of Jan. 6.
The latest batch of subpoenas went to individuals believed to have relevant information about the plans and funding for the rallies in Washington on Jan. 6 that preceded the storming of the Capitol, the select committee said.
Jones, the Infowars host who earlier this month was held liable for defamation for claiming the Sandy Hook school massacre was a "hoax," was reportedly involved in organizing the Jan. 6 rally where former President Donald Trump spoke just before the Capitol riot began, the committee said in a press release.
Stone, who was pardoned by Trump in December, was reportedly slated to speak at the rally at the Ellipse, and had reportedly said he was planning to "lead a march to the Capitol" from there, the committee said.
