Will McCarthy, Jordan talk to the Jan. 6 committee? Panel faces dilemma in coaxing defiant GOP

Date:



  • The House Jan. 6 committee wants 6 GOP lawmakers to testify, but at least four refused.
  • Congress has the power to subpoena lawmakers, experts say, but it could test their political will.
  • The clash could force the House to determine how to discipline defiant members, experts say.

WASHINGTON – With hearings a month away, the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack wants to question six Republican lawmakers about their conversations with former President Donald Trump and – for some – their knowledge of the protesters who laid siege to the building.

But given the tight time frame, the committee might not get the answers it wants.
