According to the New York Times, two former Trump advisers were subpoenaed this week as part of the Justice Department’s wide-ranging investigation into the events surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and beyond.
Stephen Miller, Trump’s senior White House political adviser, and Brian Jack, Trump’s political director, were among more than a dozen people in the former president’s inner circle who were subpoenaed by a grand jury federal this week, the Times reported.
Miller and Jack did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump, Julie Radford. It’s still unclear why exactly the PAC is being investigated and how it could be linked to the Capitol Riot.The subpoenas for Miller and Jack are also tied to the Trump PAC as well as the 2020 voter agenda, according to The Times.

Miller was subpoenaed by the House Select Committee investigating Jan. 6 for his phone records earlier this year. The counselor filed a lawsuit to block the subpoena, CNN reported. He has already sat for a deposition with the panel.
Jack, who still advises Trump, was also subpoenaed by the committee last year.
