Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R) filed a lawsuit in federal court Sunday seeking to block a subpoena from the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol to testify about a July phone call from former President Trump.
Vos filed the motion Sunday, ahead of the requested deposition scheduled for Monday morning.
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the chairman of the select committee, said in a letter dated Friday that the panel wanted information about a July phone call in which Trump reportedly asked the Wisconsin lawmaker to retroactively change the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state.
“Robin, don’t let the voters of Wisconsin down!” Trump wrote.
The Jan. 6 committee in its subpoena asked for Vos to give a deposition about his call with Trump and the surrounding circumstances.
