Jan. 6 committee subpoenas Trump - and he 'loves the idea of testifying': report

• New York Post

Fox News, citing a source close to the 45th president, reported that if Trump were to sit for an interview, he would "talk about how corrupt the election was, how corrupt the committee was, and how [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi did not call up the National Guard that Trump strongly recommended for her to do three days earlier on January 3, 2021."

The source added to Fox that it was unclear whether the former president would actually give testimony, but reiterated that the 76-year-old "loves the idea."

Trump is only the fourth former president to be subpoenaed by a congressional committee, joining Harry Truman, John Tyler and John Quincy Adams. Of the previous three, only Truman declined to comply.
