The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack issued subpoenas on Wednesday to far-right figures Nick Fuentes and Patrick Casey.

The committee said both Fuentes and Casey, who are leaders of the extremist "America First" movement, spent the days leading up to the Capitol riot encouraging supporters of former President Donald Trump to gather in Washington, D.C., and challenge the 2020 presidential election results. While they were at the Capitol on Jan. 6, it does not appear that Fuentes or Casey entered the building, NBC News reports.
