The House Committee investigating the attack on the Capitol gave former President Donald Trump an extra week to provide the requested documents after lawmakers said Friday they had not received details of a subpoena issued last month in connection with the January 6 riots.

The initial subpoena deadline was 10 a.m. ET Friday for any communications Trump may have had about extremist groups involved in the riots and any attempts over the past year to contact witnesses testifying before the Jan. 6 commission.

The October 21 subpoena also called on Trump to testify in the Capitol or via videoconference on November 14.

In a joint statement Friday, the commission’s chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and vice chair, Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said that while they allowed additional time for the documents, they would set the date for the impeachment of Mr. Trump.

“We have received correspondence from the former president and his counsel regarding the subpoena of the Select Committee,” they said. “We have informed counsel for the former president that he must begin producing records by next week and he remains under subpoena for impeachment testimony beginning Nov. 14.”

A spokesman for the Dhillon Law Group, which previously acknowledged the subpoena, did not respond to a request for comment.

David A. Warrington, a Trump attorney at the firm, previously said the firm would review the subpoena, but did not say publicly whether Trump plans to comply.

“As with any similar case, we will review and analyze it, and respond as necessary to this unprecedented action,” Warrington said in a statement at the time.

Trump has signaled that he is looking at a 2024 announcement this month. Two sources familiar with his thinking told NBC News that he is likely to announce another presidential bid this month, although the date could be pushed back.
