Donald Trump's subpoena was purely a political stunt, says legal analyst Ameer Benno
For legal analyst and GOP strategist Ameer Benno, the subpoena issued to former President Donald Trump by the January 6 committee was clearly a political stunt by the Left
The said summon was eventually withdrawn by the committee
on December 28 before it got dissolved.
The committee first issued its subpoena to Trump in October, requesting the former president to submit to questions about the attack on the U.S. Capitol and his role in attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Benno, who appeared on "John Bachman Now," told the show's co-anchor Bianca de la Garza that he agrees with Trump's assessment that the subpoena issued to him was politically motivated. The withdrawal should have been done at the very beginning of the investigation, he added.
De la Garza mentioned that Trump posted on Truth Social that "they probably did so because they knew I did nothing wrong or they were about to lose in court," referring to the subpoena withdrawal. The legal analyst concurred, pointing out that the committee must have realized that it doesn't want to draw a very bad decision from the court.
"As to the separation of powers issue as to whether a congressional committee can bring a former president before it to testify. They realized they would get bad laws on that. And so that in conjunction with the fact that the committee has expired is why they withdrew the subpoena," Benno added.
While the January 6 committee has been dissolved, De la Garza said investigations will still continue following the Department of Justice
's appointment of special counsel Jack Smith to two cases filed against Trump.
The first one revolves around Trump's efforts to overturn Joe Biden's election win and the second is his handling of classified information.
Smith's recommendations will go up to Attorney General Merrick Garland for approval. "Obviously, what happens to Smith's investigation will be closely watched," De la Garza said.
GOP Congress to launch various investigations
The Republicans took the House's full control having the majority elected representatives at 222-213. As promised during the midterm campaigns, GOP will launch probes on several issues under the Biden regime.
These investigations will cover border policies, the lifting of Title 42, big tech censorship, the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) origins and the involvement of former White House Chief Medical Advisor Anthony Fauci in the gain-of-function research.
According to Benno, the American people also want to hear about investigations into Hunter Biden's connection and the extent to which Joe Biden benefits from his son's business dealings in Ukraine and China.

In November 2022, Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) said the Biden family's business dealings implicate a wide range of criminality from human trafficking to potential violations of the constitution.
"In the 218th Congress, this committee will evaluate the status of Joe Biden's relationship with his family's foreign partners and whether he is a president who is compromised or swayed by foreign dollars or influence," he added.
Biden and his staff have claimed at least seven times that he has not been involved
in the family business, yet more than 17 pieces of evidence suggest that the president has played a significant role in the fraudulent activities of his son Hunter and brother James.
