WASHINGTON – The U.S. House of Representatives committee probing the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol issued five subpoenas on Tuesday to far-right extremist groups that have backed former President Donald Trump and to individuals associated with those groups.

The Select Committee said it sent subpoenas seeking testimony and documents to the Proud Boys group and to Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, who was its chairman, as well as to the Oath Keepers and its president, Elmer Stewart Rhodes.
