This WAS coming….
Wait till they send the subpoena’s to ex-President Trump….
This is just a preview…
It has become common knowledge that protest push beyond just standing around was well known in advance by numerous Republican lawmakers and that from Donald Trump down there was communication…
The committee is trying to gather as much evidence of this stuff as they can….
And there are tapes…
Republican lawmakers are bound to try to stall f0r a long as they can so that if they do get a majority oin the House they can disband the Select Committee efforts to ‘out’ the extensive effort by a sitting President to stop a cwertification of a election’s results…
Trump’s action have resulted in headache’s and lawyers fee’s for those involved….
The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol issued subpoenas on Thursday to five Republican members of Congress, including Representative Kevin McCarthy, the minority leader, who had refused to meet with the panel voluntarily.
The committee’s leaders had been reluctant to issue subpoenas to their fellow lawmakers. That is an extraordinarily rare step for most congressional committees to take, though the House Ethics Committee, which is responsible for investigating allegations of misconduct by members, is known to do so.
The panel said it was demanding documents and testimony from Mr. McCarthy, of California, who engaged in a heated phone call with Mr. Trump during the Capitol violence; Representative Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, who coordinated a plan to try to replace the acting attorney general who had resisted Mr. Trump’s false claims of widespread fraud; Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, who was deeply involved in the effort to fight the election results; Representative Andy Biggs of Arizona, the former leader of the ultraconservative House Freedom Caucus; and Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama, who has said Mr. Trump has continued to seek an unlawful reinstatement to office for more than a year.
All five have refused requests for voluntary interviews about the roles they played in the buildup to the attack by supporters of the former president who believed his lie of widespread election fraud….
The subpoena to Mr. McCarthy is particularly noteworthy because he is in line to become speaker if Republicans win control of the House this November. Should he refuse to comply, it could set in motion a process that could lead to a Democratic-controlled House holding him in contempt of Congress as the midterm elections loom.
Congressional investigators have rarely confronted a situation that carries such hefty stakes for their institution.
Mr. McCarthy has long feared being subpoenaed in the investigation. In recent months, he has been in discussions with William A. Burck, a longtime Washington lawyer, about how to fight a subpoena.
The committee wants to question Mr. McCarthy about conversations he took part in after the attack, about the president’s culpability in the assault and what should be done to address it. The committee has also suggested Mr. Trump may have influenced Mr. McCarthy’s refusal to cooperate with the investigation…..
