Liz Cheney Subpoenas Jim Jordan, Kevin McCarthy, Other Top Republicans

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and her allies on the Jan. 6 House Select Committee have just subpoenaed Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and several other Republicans.

The House committee investigating Jan. 6 has made an unprecedented move by issuing subpoenas for several Republican members of Congress.

McCarthy and Jordan along with Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania were all subpoenaed after rejecting the committee’s voluntary requests to testify.

The Republican members are expected to tell Cheney and her committee to go pound sand, setting up the next crisis for the anti-Trump “investigators.”

Attorney General Merrick Garland will not interfere with another branch’s business, otherwise, he faces getting shut down by the courts.

“The Select Committee has learned that several of our colleagues have information relevant to our investigation into the attack on January 6th and the events leading up to it,” said the committee’s chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) in a press release.

“Before we hold our hearings next month, we 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.”

From CBS:

While the select committee has issued subpoenas for McCarthy, Jordan, Brooks, Perry and Biggs, it has also asked GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson to participate in voluntary meetings with investigators.

It’s unclear whether the panel will subpoena Jackson in the future.

The panel told Jordan and Brooks in earlier requests for information they would like to discuss conversations the two had with former President Donald Trump regarding his efforts to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Investigators believe Perry played an “important role” in efforts to install former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark as acting attorney general and found the Pennsylvania Republican communicated with Meadows about Clark through text messages and Signal, an encrypted messaging app.

The committee believes Biggs participated in meetings at the White House and remotely regarding planning for January 6, including on the strategy for Vice President Mike Pence to reject electoral votes from key battleground states Trump lost in the 2020 presidential election.
