The Republican National Committee (RNC) has been desperately railing against the investigation into the Capitol insurrection for months, and now we know why because the money apparently leads back to them.

The House January 6th Committee issued a subpoena this week seeking RNC fundraising records between it and Salesforce, a company the GOP and Donald Trump used to solicit donations while pushing lies about the 2020 Election. Trump’s campaign also urged people to “pressure” Congress to keep Trump in power.

As we all know, Trump supporters would go on to violently storm the Capitol on January 6th in a scheme to overthrow democracy.

Now the committee wants the paper trail, and the RNC clearly has something to hide because it has filed a lawsuit seeking to block the subpoena.

Of course, the RNC deserves this karma after it had previously censured Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) just for agreeing to serve on the committee. Rep. Benny Thompson (D-Miss.), who chairs the January 6th Committee, explained the reasoning behind the subpoena in the filing.

“The Select Committee is seeking information from Salesforce regarding whether and how the Trump campaign used Salesforce’s platform to disseminate false statements about the 2020 election in the weeks leading up to the January 6th attack. Accordingly, the Select Committee seeks documents and a deposition regarding these and other matters that are within the scope of the Select Committee’s inquiry,” he said.

This investigation is digging deep, and rightfully so. The Capitol insurrection was an act of treason against our nation. Trump and his Republican supporters sought to overthrow our democracy and our Constitution. We should never stop investigating until every last participant and leader of this coup plot is behind bars.
