Donald Trump for President Advisory Board member, attorney Boris Epshteyn, hit back after the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot subpoenaed him and three other pro-Trump attorneys.

"It is no surprise whatsoever that the illegitimate January 6th Unselect Committee would attempt to subpoena attorneys as it continues its Stalinist witch hunt against President Trump and his supporters," Epshteyn tweeted. 

"The information I am happy to share with Democrats, RINOs and anyone else is that of the overwhelming fraud that permeated the 2020 election in Arizona, Wisconsin, Georgia, Pennsylvania and beyond," he added.

The panel on Tuesday issued four subpoenas to lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell and Epshteyn. The committee said each person "publicly promoted claims that the 2020 election was stolen and participated in attempts to disrupt or delay the certification of the election results based on your allegations."

Ellis seemed to indirectly respond to the subpoena on Wednesday. "The committee is just mad they can’t date me," she tweeted, mocking how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) used a similar line in defense of her trip to Florida.
