With the first anniversary of the January 6th insurrection a couple of weeks behind us, the House committee’s investigation is picking up steam. Rudy Giuliani and other former Trump legal team members have been subpoenaed, and Ivanka Trump has been politely asked to participate in the investigation. The House is weighing the option of subpoenaing its colleague, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, after he refused to cooperate. Meanwhile, further details into the plot to overthrow election results reveal the Oath Keeper’s weapons stockpile. To top it all off, former First Son-in-Law, Jared Kushner, is making moves to be a force in private equity, whether or not Trump sees a second term.
 

Here’s a refresher on our Daily Stack topics this week:
