Bad news for Donald Trump Jr.

Reports from multiple major news outlets have made clear that the January 6th Committee intends to make a criminal referral against Donald Trump on what could be various charges. The committee has also been subpoenaing everyone around Trump, and has begun the process of having the non-cooperators indicted for criminal contempt. But it’s been an open question as to whether the committee is going to target Trump’s family members – until now.

January 6th Committee member Adam Kinzinger is now telling MSNBC that it’s “obvious we would need some information” from Donald Trump Jr. and his fiancée Kimberly Guilfoyle. This strongly points to the committee ultimately subpoenaing them as witnesses. And presuming they refuse to cooperate against Donald Trump, they’d end up referred for criminal contempt.


The committee has been doing things in a particular order, as these kinds of multi-layered probes tend to go. We’d guess that it would target Donald Trump’s family members as witnesses comparatively late in the game. We’ll see. But now Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle know they’re on the clock.
