Trump news today: Donald Trump lawyers receive Jan 6 subpoena as Meadows ordered to testify to Georgia grand jury

Liz Cheney says ‘no one’ should vote for ‘election deniers’ in midterms

Donald Trump’s attorneys have received the January 6 committee’s subpoena of the former president asking him to appear for deposition by 14 November and turn over relevant documents, a report says.

The news comes just after Hope Hicks, formerly one of his closest aides, gave an interview to the committee. She had a number of roles in the Trump campaign and White House, departing soon after the Capitol riot.

Meanwhile, Mark Meadows, who served as Donald Trump’s chief of staff at the end of his presidency, has failed in his latest attempt to avoid testifying to Georgia investigators looking into the former president’s efforts to pressure state officials into overturning the 2020 election.

On another legal front, the Justice Department’s inquiry into the documents hoarded by Mr Trump at Mar-a-Lago is reportedly focusing on a former White House valet, Walt Nauta, who worked closely with Mr Trump during and after his presidency – and who was apparently sometimes charged with moving documents between rooms as Mr Trump moved around the building.

In addition, a DC appeals court has set a date for oral arguments in the E Jean Carroll defamation case against the former president.

Mr Trump wrote: “As he fully understands, writer Bob Woodward never got my permission to release tapes of my various interviews with him. Those tapes were allowed only for purposes of making sure that he got my quotes & statements correct for “the WRITTEN WORD,” in other words, for his, nevertheless, highly inaccurate book.”

Would Trump be able to run again in the 2024 election?

But while losing to Joe Biden in November 2020 may have dented the one-term president’s pride and fuelled 18 months of lies about rigged ballot boxes, it now seems almost certain that Mr Trump will run again for the White House in 2024.

Trump teases 2024 run with Iowa rally ahead of midterms

Former President Donald Trump is scheduled to return to Iowa ahead of the 8 November midterms, to headline a rally for Republican Gov Kim Reynolds and Sen. Chuck Grassley.

The event, set for 3 November in Sioux City, the hub of Iowa’s conservative northwest, comes as Trump has continued to tease interest in a White House comeback campaign as he has campaigned around the country for Republican candidates.

Returning to Iowa, where the 2024 Republican presidential caucuses are scheduled to launch the GOP nominating sequence, would likely further stoke speculation of Trump’s future.
