NEW: January 6th Committee Subpoenas Kevin McCarthy, Mo Brooks, Jim Jordan, Others

The January 6th Committee has asked several top Republicans to voluntarily testify regarding the attack on the Capitol January 6th of last year, as well as other plots that were underway to nullify and overturn the election. Now, they’re no longer extending a voluntary invitation — they’ve move on to subpoenas.

The new list of Republicans who are now being ordered to comply with the Congressional Committee include House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Scott Perry (R-PA), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Mo Brooks (R-AL). Of these, Biggs and Brooks were named in a request to appear earlier this month, along with Ronny Jackson, who is not mentioned in the new announcement of subpoenas.

The Committee reiterated in statements released on social media that public hearings are imminent, and that they want to speak to these Members of Congress before that commences.

The Committee previously stated that they wanted to interview Brooks about conversations he had with Trump in which the former president demanded that the election somehow be canceled or undone, which Brooks has spoken about publicly, and to Biggs about his own participation in planning meetings, as well as in the effort to sway Pence to abdicate his duty and refuse to confirm the election.

Jim Jordan, according to CNN, “spoke at length” on the morning of January 6th, and Kevin McCarthy also reportedly spoke with Trump during the attack, and has said Trump admitted to bearing responsibility for it.
