The committee has publicized 45 subpoenas do date, but has also quietly issued an unknown number of subpoenas and conducted nearly 300 interviews so far.

. And former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, who last week said he would cooperate with the committee, on Tuesday announced through his lawyer that he would not — and cited previously unknown collection of his cell phone logs by the committee as the reason.

Advertisement“While we’ve announced roughly 40 subpoenas, the select committee has heard from 275 witnesses, both individuals complying with subpoenas and those participating with our investigation voluntarily,” a committee aide said on condition of anonymity. “We’ve taken in more than 30,000 pages of records, received hundreds of tips, and are making rapid progress in this phase of our investigation.”

Norm Eisen, an Obama White House lawyer who worked with the House committee that prosecuted Trump’s first impeachment, said the under-the-radar work makes sense. “In the case of Marc Short, it appears that they quietly issued appropriate process, and he’s been cooperating for weeks,” he said. “If they’d done it publicly, who knows what sort of threats and intimidation he might have received.” headtopics.com

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows arrives to hear then-President Donald Trump speak in the East Room at the White House early in the morning on Nov 4, 2020, in Washington, D.C.The Washington Post via Getty ImagesThat Short, who was with Pence at the Capitol when Trump’s mob stormed the building, would cooperate was not surprising, given that Trump had endangered his life. What was not previously confirmed, though, was that the committee has been issuing “friendly” subpoenas to give witnesses the ability to say they are merely complying with a lawful demand for testimony.

Similarly, while the committee in August released letters to 35 telecommunications and technology companies asking them to preserve records of certain individuals, the names of those people were not released, and it was not until Meadows’ lawyer told the committee his client would not be cooperating that it became clear that Meadows — who was with Trump all that day — was among them.
