Sebastian Gorka says Jan. 6 committee subpoenaed his phone records: 'They chose the wrong enemy'

"That's my crime in America? Speaking?" Sebastian Gorka said to attendees at a Turning Point USA conference.

Sebastian Gorka, former assistant to President Donald Trump, on Monday said his phone records had been subpoenaed by the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.

"This committee is illegal," Gorka said at Turning Point USA's winter conference, according to The Daily Beast. "No crime is mentioned. What am I accused of doing? Because I was meant to be speaking on the same day at the Supreme Court but didn't because the president's speech went too long. That's my crime in America? Speaking?"

Gorka posted a photo of himself with the subpoena on Twitter.

"I'm not even accused of any crime," he wrote. "The Gorka family survived Nazi and Communist dictatorships."

Gorka said the committee "chose the wrong" enemy.

The Jan. 6 committee has also subpoenaed the phone records of former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows and freelance photojournalist Amy Harris. Both Meadows and Harris are suing to block the subpoena. 

Congress voted to hold Meadows in contempt last week for not cooperating with the committee.
