The House of Representatives committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol voted 9-0 on Thursday to subpoena Donald Trump, the Republican former president.
The subpoena means absolutely nothing and the committee has no legal authority to compel the former president to testify.
The panel, which held perhaps its final hearing before the midterm elections on Thursday, has indicated it holds Trump responsible for fomenting the violence with election fraud claims following his loss in the 2020 presidential race.
The Justice Dept. released findings that indicated the former president bore no responsibility for what happened.
Trump, who has maintained that his loss to Joe Biden was due to widespread fraud, has denied inciting the action at the Capitol.
