The chairman of the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection told reporters Monday the panel plans to issue a “good number” of subpoenas beyond the four already announced.

Why it matters: The comments by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) indicate the investigation is ramping up. Thompson also said the initial batch has gotten no response — indicating the headwinds facing the probe.

The details: The chairman said the new subpoenas would go to a “similar group, but a broader group,” of people as the first batch.

  • He added, “I think a lot of those individuals who have been charged by the authorities, potentially, could work with us on crafting the facts and circumstances as to why they came to Washington. I think they'll have significant information that the committee could benefit from.”

What we’re watching: Those who have already received subpoenas have not yet responded, Thompson told reporters.

  • They were sent to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, former communications official Dan Scavino, former Defense Department official Kash Patel and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon.
  • They have until Oct. 7 to turn over the requested documents. Patel and Bannon are instructed to appear before the committee on Oct 14, and Meadows and Scavino have been told to appear on Oct. 15.
  • Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has warned that those who refuse to comply with subpoenas would be guilty of criminal contempt.
  • Former President Trump has suggested the group is covered by executive privilege.

Judge to hear Nov. 4 oral arguments for Trump's executive privilege claim

A Nov. 4 hearing has been set for former President Trump's claim of executive privilege in regard to the House Jan. 6 select committee's investigation, Reuters reports.

Why it matters: Trump's legal team has moved to block some of the committee's requests for records by invoking executive privilege, which can allow presidents and their aides to sidestep congressional scrutiny.

In a post to staffers Saturday obtained by Axios, Facebook VP of global affairs Nick Clegg warned the company that worse coverage could be on the way: “We need to steel ourselves for more bad headlines in the coming days, I’m afraid.”

Catch up quick: Roughly two dozen news outlets had agreed to hold stories based on leaked materials from Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen for Monday publication — but the embargo fell apart Friday night as participating newsrooms posted a batch of articles ahead of the weekend.
