Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Sunday he is OK with issuing a subpoena to anyone with information about the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and relevant interactions with former President Donald Trump — even House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
“I would support subpoenas to anyone who can shed light on that,” Mr. Kinzinger, Illinois Republican, told ABC’s “This Week.” “If that’s the leader, that’s the leader.”
Mr. Kinzinger is an Illinois Republican who accepted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to sit on a House select committee investigating the attack inspired by Mr. Trump’s claims the 2020 election was stolen from him.
Mr. Kinzinger also slammed prominent Republicans who argued that Mrs. Pelosi was to blame for failing to prevent the Capitol breach. He said party allies are making outlandish claims solely to appease Mr. Trump, a voracious consumer of TV news.
“It doesn’t even matter if it doesn’t make any sense anymore,” Mr. Kinzinger said. “It’s insane.”
