Jan. 6 Panel Subpoenas 5 GOP Lawmakers

1934: Great dustbowl storm sweeps across US prairies.

The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot has issued subpoenas to five Republican lawmakers, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

The other members of Congress to receive subpoenas were Reps. Scott Perry (R-PA), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Mo Brooks (R-AL).

The panel’s chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), said the lawmakers “have information relevant to our investigation into the attack on January 6th and the events leading up to it.”

The committee is slated to begin its public hearings next month.

“Before we hold our hearings next month, we [had] wished to provide members the opportunity to discuss these matters with the committee voluntarily. Regrettably, the individuals receiving subpoenas today have refused, and we’re forced to take this step to help ensure the committee uncovers facts concerning January 6th,” Thompson said.

“We urge our colleagues to comply with the law, do their patriotic duty, and cooperate with our investigation as hundreds of other witnesses have done.”

Perry issued a statement in response to the subpoena, calling it the committee’s “latest charade.”

“That this illegitimate body leaked their latest charade to the media ahead of contacting targeted Members is proof positive once again that this political witch hunt is about fabricating headlines and distracting Americans from their abysmal record of running America into the ground,” Perry said.

    If they won’t show have them dragged in handcuffs and leg irons to tell their traitor’s tail. Then throw them in jail for five years.

      Be sure and take Pelosi and company with them. But she deserves life

      1. Brenda says:

        So it is the GOP again that is the problem. What about Pelosi part in all of this. Her stagging the phoney Trump supporters,her not supporting having more police presences. Not doing her job. What about Biden not supporting the American people.

      2. Muffin says:

        Amen.. Take the quad too!

      3. I agree, because I think she and the FBI planned the whole situation. It is the only thing that makes any sense.

    2. Muffin says:

    bill murphy, there was enough fraud to overturn the election, might I suggest that you watch 2,000 mules….WE HAVE A RIGHT to know how the fraud worked so we can prevent it from happening again

    If the crazy Jan 6 “committee” were legitimate, then there would be representation from BOTH LEGITIMATE parties. And the RINOS DO NOT count!
    And compare that to ALL the almost now uncountable horrific and even treasonous & impeachable crap that bidum, et. al., has put us all through for these past, endless ~18 months of unspeakable injustices and horror. ALL of which is someone else’s fault. Most of it is not even acknowledged, let along actually admitted and apologized for. Let along actually DOING something to at least start correcting some things! Like opening up the PIPELINES and NOT wiping out even more leases. And how about feeding our babies???
    There needs to be subpoenas for all the unreleased videos/security cameras. The butts of piglosi and all her cronies need to be subpoenaed also!
    All the while the pro-abortion “peaceful protests” go along totally unchallenged and absolutely breaking Constitutional Laws. Oh, of course then there is that (blankity blank blank) Summer of Love that has NEVER been challenged.
