House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and several other senior Democrats in the US House of Representatives are being issued subpoenas by House Republicans should the GOP prevail in winning back the House of Representatives in the upcoming midterm elections.
CNN reported that several “grassroots” Republicans are likely to become committee chairs and members of the party leadership after halftime. According to some Republicans in Congress, the Jan. 6 panel that selectively subpoenaed House GOP Chairman Kevin McCarthy and other members of the Republican caucus has created a new standard that Republicans will follow after regaining control of the House of Representatives can replicate.
Republican Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania were subpoenaed along with McCarthy.
At the top of the list is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Republicans are reportedly planning to target the House Speaker’s communications regarding security manners leading up to January 6, 2021 and the events at the Capitol that day.
Buddy Carter, a Republican representative from Georgia, said, “I’ll tell you the truth: yes, I do,” when asked if he thinks Republicans should serve a subpoena against Pelosi.
Rep. Carter continued: “This is setting a precedent and we will not lie down and let this happen. There are serious questions about her role on January 6th and exactly what she did and didn’t do. And we have to get to the bottom of that.”
Brian Mast, a Republican representative from Florida, said, “I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a subpoena there.”
However, Pelosi said Friday that she “never fears precedent.”
“I’m never afraid of precedent,” said the longtime Democratic congresswoman. “We seek the truth and will not be cowards in doing so.”
The “contempt” between Pelosi and McCarthy has reportedly been palpable since Jan. 6.
Jim Banks, a Republican representative from Indiana whom Pelosi, as one of McCarthy’s handpicked members of the Republican faction, declined to attend the Jan. 6 panel, said the select committee should subpoena the spokeswoman for her testimony about security preparations and disruptions on 6th January.
Banks said: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the only person in the United States who has covered up anything related to January 6th. So they should subpoena them. She should be at the top of the list.”
