The House Select Committee tasked with investigating the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 sent out a flurry of requests to federal agencies for records, including communications from former President Donald Trump’s adult children and others. Tiffany Trump is the only exception among Trump’s adult children.
The Jan 6 committee is seeking all White House comms/docs on Jan 6 related whatsoever to:

“The committee announced that it plans to seek records from the executive branch related to the attack and its run-up — including “communications within and among the White House and Executive Branch agencies” on and before Jan. 6,” the report states.
“The requests also sought records on attempts to place politically loyal personnel in positions across the government after the election, the planning, organization and response to Jan. 6 and earlier, and attempts to overturn the rule of law and overturn the 2020 election,” the outlet reports.
“The panel sent requests to the National Archives and Records Administration, the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of the Interior, the FBI, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence,” the report continues.
“The new probe has slowly ramped up over the past few weeks, hiring staff and holding its first hearing. That hearing focused on the violence Capitol Police officers faced during the attack on Jan. 6,” the report states. “But more details on the dangers they faced — and warnings their superiors ignored — will likely emerge in coming weeks.”
618 Trump supporters have so far been arrested and charged with crimes after then-President Donald Trump incited a mob to attack the US Capitol on January 6 — forcing Congress to go into lockdown and damaging the halls of government while trying to stop the peaceful transition of power.
According to Talking Points Memo, Trump has a lot to worry about.
The panel wants records encompassing Trump’s activities, movements, and meetings on Jan. 6, as well as documents and communications from April 1, 2020 until the end of Trump’s term having to do with attempts to contest the 2020 election results and to “delay or impede” the electoral count.
Tiffany Trump is off the hook, but I’m sure Donald Trump Jr. is pissing in his pants right now. Ivanka and Jared Kushner are probably having a family meeting at the moment, while Rudy Giuliani is left flailing on his own. Meanwhile, Melania might be contacting a divorce attorney — who knows.
