Ex-Kansas AG Kline subpoenaed in probe of US Capitol rioting

The congressional committee investigating last year’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has subpoenaed a former Kansas attorney general who promoted baseless election fraud claims that helped fuel the rioting. The U.S. House committee on the Jan. 6, 2021, violence issued its subpoena Tuesday to Phill Kline. It directs him to produce documents by March 15 and submit to in-person questioning by lawyers on March 25. A letter to Kline said he convened a call for then-President Donald Trump and 300 state legislators and encouraged participants to push for delaying the certification of Democrat Joe Biden’s victory over Trump. Kline did not immediately respond to a Twitter message seeking comment.
