Trump has been fundraising since the January 6 subpoena

Former President Trump is using the committee’s January 6 subpoena to raise funds.

Trump’s Save America Joint Fundraising Committee sent an email to supporters Thursday, urging them to donate in response to the committee’s Jan. 6 appeal to the former president.

“PRESIDENT TRUMP DID NOTHING WRONG,” the email claimed. “The January 6 Election Nullification Committee just voted to SUBPOEN the 45th President of the United States. 19 DAYS before the Midterm Elections, America is truly a nation in decline.”

The fundraising email echoes Trump’s previous accusations that the committee’s investigation is a “witch hunt,” claiming it’s “coming after OUR president.”

Throughout its hearings, the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack has shown Trump at the center of a conspiracy to stay in power that ended in a violent rampage at the Capitol.

Trump’s comments came after the panel presented additional evidence during its public hearing last Thursday indicating he planned to claim he won the 2020 contest on election night, regardless of the outcome or even if all the votes were tallied.

Evidence was also presented from former associates who said Trump would concede his loss to President Biden in private, even as he continued to falsely claim the election was stolen.

Panel unanimously voted to subpoena Trump during a public hearing last Thursday. The subpoena has yet to be officially served.

Trump quickly pounced on the January 6 board on social media after the announcement, dismissing it as a political stunt. The next day he followed a 14 page answer it avoided the central question of whether he would testify.

The subpoena is not generally expected to produce testimony from the former president, and the panel, which is set to expire at the end of the year, has little time to conduct it.
