The House Select Committee investigating the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 issued a second round of subpoenas Wednesday, this time targeting key organizers behind the rally that later escalated into storming the Capitol.
The committee filed 11 subpoenas targeting leaders of Women for America First (WFAF), the organization which obtained the permit for the rally, CNN reported Wednesday.
WFAF founder Amy Kremer is among the 11 individuals named in the subpoena. Kremer played an influential role in organizing protests and rallies across the country pushing former President Donald Trump’s claims that the 2020 election was stolen.
The committee appears to be most interested in whether rally organizers worked directly with the White House prior to Jan. 6.
“The investigation has revealed credible evidence of your involvement in events within the scope of the Select Committee’s inquiry,” the committee wrote of Kremer.
“According to documents provided to the Select Committee, press reports, and statements by you and your organization, Women for America First, you participated in the organization and sponsorship of the rally held on the Ellipse in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021, in support of then-president Trump and his allegations of election fraud.”

The committee issued its first round of subpoenas Sept. 23, which targeted four senior level officials from the Trump administration.
The first round of subpoenas named former White House Chief of staff Mark Meadows, former adviser Steve Bannon, former Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino and Kashyap Patel, the chief of staff for then-acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller.
