"Panel Probes Trump Aide Over NPS Permit For Jan. 6 Rally"

"As Congress marks the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, congressional investigators are probing whether a Trump White House aide pressured Interior Department and National Park Service officials over permitting for then-President Trump’s rally on the Ellipse.

The House select committee looking into the deadly assault on the Capitol issued a subpoena last month for testimony and documents from Max Miller — a former presidential aide now running for an open House seat in Ohio. Miller helped plan the Jan. 6 event in which Trump encouraged supporters to march on the Capitol and “fight like hell.”

As the committee continues its work, a host of events are planned today to commemorate the riots. In the morning, President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will deliver remarks at the Capitol."
