The deadline for Donald Trump to produce documents subpoenaed by the Jan. 6 select committee has slipped amid ongoing negotiations between House lawyers and the former president’s legal team.

In a Friday evening statement, Jan. 6 panel chair Bennie Thompson and vice chair Liz Cheney indicated that they’ve received “correspondence from the former President and his counsel” and had agreed to extend a document deadline that had originally been set for Friday morning.

“We have informed the former President’s counsel that he must begin producing records no later than next week and he remains under subpoena for deposition testimony starting on November 14th,” the lawmakers said.

Trump’s lawyers and a spokesman have declined multiple requests for an update on the status of negotiations with the select committee.

Securing Trump’s testimony remains a longshot for the committee, which is set to dissolve at the end of the year. Trump’s attorneys at the Dhillon Law Group have already raised concerns about the procedures the committee used, and any legal challenge would likely doom the panel’s effort.

But Trump has declined to rule out appearing for an interview. The panel has spent the last year building a case that Trump repeatedly violated the law in his wide-ranging effort to derail the transfer of power to Joe Biden and seize a second term he didn’t win.

The panel wants to question Trump about his efforts to sow distrust in the election results, his attempt to mobilize the government in support of his claims, his effort to pressure his vice president, Mike Pence, to overturn the election on Jan. 6 and his lengthy silence while a violent mob attacked police and ransacked the Capitol.
