Kinzinger Calls For House Minority Leader McCarthy To Be Subpoenaed By 1/6 Committee

Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) went on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday to say that he supports the idea of serving House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) with a subpoena as a part of the House’s Select Committee January 6 investigation.

“I would expect to see a significant number of subpoenas for a lot of people,” Kinzinger said, according to ABC News.

Kinzinger Wants Subpoenas

When asked if he wants to see McCarthy subpoenaed, Kinzinger replied, “I would support subpoenas to anybody who can shed light on that. If that’s the leader, that’s the leader. If it’s anybody that talked to the president that can provide us that information.”

“I want to know what the president was doing every moment of that day after he said I’m going to walk with you to the Capitol,” he continued. “After Mo Brooks stood up and said, we’re going to kick backside and take names. Today’s the day that patriots take their country back from other people. I want to know what they were doing.”

“If the National Guard took five or six hours to get to Capitol Hill, did the president make any calls? And if he didn’t, why? And if he did, of course, then how come the National Guard still takes five hours?” Kinzinger added. “I think had the president picked up the phone and made a call. The guard would have been there immediately.”

“If anybody is scared of this investigation, I ask you one question,” he stated. “What are you afraid of? I mean, either you’re afraid of being discovered of having some culpability in it or what? If you think it wasn’t a big deal, then you should allow this to go forward.”

Kinzinger Claims He Wants Answers

In this same interview, Kinzinger went so far as to say that the children of the people downplaying the Capitol riot deserve to know the truth about what happened.

“What we need to know is what happened,” he said. “So you look at what is to take to find happened? It’s going talking to a lot of people. It’s going to take a thorough investigation. We want to do it expeditiously.”

“We want to get to the answers,” Kinzinger continued. “We don’t want to drag this out. We want to know — I think this is kind of like the shot we have as a country to get answers to what led up to it, what really happened, and what happened aftermath. I would expect to see a significant number of subpoenas for a lot of people.”

“I think the bigger thing is just what is the message that’s going to come out this is that the American people deserve the truth, they need the truth,” he added. “Even if there are some folks on some TV channels that don’t want to talk about it, the truth needs to be out there for even those folks’ kids to know in the future. So it’s going to be a thorough investigation, that is for sure.”
