Representative Bennie Thompson, a Democrat and Select Committee chairman, said in a press release that the five House Republicans who received subpoenas have information about events leading up to the attack.

"Before we hold our hearings next month, we wished to provide members the opportunity to discuss these matters with the committee voluntarily,” Thompson said. “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.”

WASHINGTON, May 12 (Reuters) - Congressman Kevin McCarthy, the top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, and four other lawmakers received subpoenas on Thursday from the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol by Donald Trump's supporters.

The Jan. 6 House Select Committee issued the subpoenas to try to secure the lawmakers' testimony after they had rejected voluntary cooperation with the investigation.

McCarthy on Thursday told reporters that the committee's investigation is "illegitimate" but did not answer questions about whether he would comply with the subpoena.

In January, McCarthy said in a statement that he would not cooperate with the committee's investigation.

"As a representative and the leader of the minority party, it is with neither regret nor satisfaction that I have concluded to not participate with this select committee’s abuse of power that stains this institution today and will harm it going forward," McCarthy's statement said.

The other Republican lawmakers receiving subpoenas were Representatives Jim Jordan, Mo Brooks, Scott Perry and Andy Biggs.

"This whole thing is a charade," Perry said of the subpoenas.

Representatives of Brooks, Jordan and Biggs did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

There need to be laws preventing people from ignoring congressional subpoenas, otherwise what’s the point of them?

Is there a list of those who have ignored subpoenas?

Kevin McCarthy did but besides Steve Bannon, has anyone else been criminally charged?

No, because the committee can't charge anyone. They can only refer to the Dept. of Justice and DoJ has so far not charged anyone else (i.e. Mark Meadows).

What's to stop them from just ignoring the subpoenas?

Respect for the country, duty to the people and the institution, belief in the integrity of the process and the rule of law.

Poor babies. Subpoena a congressman for possibly fomenting insurrection? Unpresidented!

I mean, it’s not like these Freedom Caucus guys are lowly Secretaries of State, who can be (and have been) subpoenaed for just any BS thing.

All too true, unless people go to jail for doing so.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
