Two other men who worked for Trump—former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and longtime Trump social media director Dan Scavino—were scheduled for depositions Friday, but they have both been pushed back as well. Meadows, like Patel, has been given a"short postponement" as he is also engaging with the panel, the aide said, and Scavino's deposition has been rescheduled because there were delays in serving his subpoena.

It is unclear to what extent Trump has tried to influence his aides, beyond his lawyers' attempts to assert executive privilege. In a statement Thursday, the former president said the members of the committee should"hold themselves in criminal contempt" and that"the people are not going to stand for it!"

Other witnesses are cooperating, including some who organized or staffed the Trump rally on the Ellipse behind the White House that preceded the riot. The committee subpoenaed 11 rally organizers and gave them a Wednesday deadline to turn over documents and records. They have also been asked to appear at scheduled depositions.

Among those complying was Lyndon Brentnall, whose firm was hired to provide event security at the Ellipse, a park near the White House, that day and two longtime Trump campaign and White House staffers, Megan Powers and Hannah Salem. It is uncertain whether any of the others subpoenaed have complied.

Women for America First, the group that organized the rally on the Ellipse, posted on a fundraising site that two of its founders would"happily testify before an open session of Congress so that the whole world can hear the truth."The group did not say whether Amy and Kylie Kremer, who are mother and daughter, have complied with the subpoenas or plan to appear for depositions, but noted that"we must turn over the thousands of documents on October 13 and are scheduled to appear in Congress on October 29."

Many of the rioters who stormed the Capitol on January 6 marched up the National Mall after attending at least part of Trump's rally, where he repeated his meritless claims of election fraud and implored the crowd to"fight like hell." Dozens of police officers were injured as the Trump supporters overwhelmed them and broke through windows and doors to interrupt the certification of Biden's victory.

The rioters repeated Trump's false claims of widespread fraud as they marched through the Capitol, even though the results of the election were confirmed by state officials, upheld by courts and even rejected by Trump's own attorney general.The panel has also issued a subpoena to a former Justice Department lawyer, Jeffrey Clark, who positioned himself as Trump's ally and aided the Republican president's efforts to challenge the results of the 2020 election.

ASenatecommittee report issued last week showed that Clark championed Trump's efforts to undo the election results and clashed as a result with department superiors who resisted the pressure, culminating in a dramatic White House meeting at which Trump ruminated about elevating Clark to attorney general.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said he expects the Justice Department to prosecute the contempt cases. A sign denotes a portion of the West Front of the U.S. Capitol remains closed, as security fencing is removed on September 19 in Washington, D.C.
