The Jan. 6 House Committee has obtained new, previously unreported footage of Donald Trump and his family — taken on Jan. 6 — as they continue their investigation into the ex-president’s responsibility for the storming of the U.S. Capitol.

Politico obtained a copy of the subpoena that the committee recently issued to Alex Holder, a documentary filmmaker who had “extensive access” to Trump, former Vice President Mike Pence, and the former president’s inner circle before and after January 6. The report was corroborated by the Washington Post, who heard from a spokesperson for Holder who told the outlet he complied with the subpoena and “handed over all requested footage.”

The subpoena shows that the January 6 Committee asked Holder to provide them with footage pertaining to 3 categories:

1. Any raw footage you or your colleagues took in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021.

2. Any raw footage of interviews with the following individuals from September 2020 through the present:

a. : President Donald J. Trump;
b. Donald J. Trump, Jr.;
c. Ivanka Trump;
d. Eric Trump;
e. Jared Kushner and;
f. Vice President Mike Pence.

3. Any raw footage pertaining to discussions of election fraud or election integrity surrounding the November 2020 presidential election.

Politico adds that Holder will also give a deposition during an interview with the committee schedule for Thursday. The committee has held a series of hearings on the riot in the past 2 weeks, and they are expected to hold another on Tuesday about Trump’s involvement in schemes to overturn the 2022 election with fake electors.

UPDATE – 10:45 a.m. ET: Holder has released a statement announcing his compliance:
