The House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol released another round of subpoenas Tuesday.

According to the request, the committee is calling on Proud Boys International, L.L.C., Henry "Enrique" Tarrio, the Oath Keepers, Elmer Stewart Rhodes, and Robert Patrick Lewis/1st Amendment Praetorian to hand over documents related to the Jan. 6 attack.

According to the committee, they'll be seeking information because they believe "the individuals and organizations we subpoenaed today have relevant information about how violence erupted at the Capitol and the preparation leading up to this violent attack. The Select Committee is moving swiftly to uncover the facts of what happened on that day and we expect every witness to comply with the law and cooperate so we can get answers to the American people."

The committee explained that the Proud Boys called for violence leading into the attack and at least 34 of their members have already been indicted by the Justice Department

"Many individuals associated with the Proud Boys repeatedly spread the former President's unsupported claim that the 2020 election was stolen and suggested the use of force against police officers and government officials," the release said.

Tarrio, the former Proud Boys chair, was blocked from coming into Washington, D.C., however, the committee explained that he too helped his organization plot the events.

The Oath Keepers group was also involved with 18 members indicted by a federal grand jury for "planning a coordinated attack to storm the Capitol, including by traveling to Washington, D.C., with paramilitary gear and supplies," said the release.

Oath Keepers president Elmer Stewart Rhodes suggested this group should "engage in violence to ensure their preferred election outcome," the committee explained.

The 1st Amendment Praetorian claims to be an organization that provided security at 2020 election protest rallies. The group's Twitter account suggested that violence was imminent in a message sent on Jan. 4.

The chair of the group, Robert Patrick Lewis, tweeted Jan. 6 tweeted: "Today is the day that true battles begin."

After the attack on the Capitol, Lewis claimed he was involved in "war-games" to continue the efforts to overthrow the government.
