January 6 Citation of the GOP Legislators Committee

The House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol issued subpoenas on Thursday to five Republican members of Congress, including Representative Kevin McCarthy, the minority leader, who voluntarily refused to meet with the panel.

Committee leaders had previously been reluctant to issue subpoenas to their fellow lawmakers. This is an extraordinarily rare step for most Congressional committees to take, although the House Ethics Committee, which is responsible for investigating allegations of member misconduct, is known to do so.
