Now Congress is moving to create a bipartite commission on January 6and Cheney Absolutely thinks McCarthy is going to have to testify – possibly under subpoena. Check out her spectacular standoff here as she twists the knife:
Jon Karl: Now the speaker, along with at least one Republican – a key Republican – has announced a deal on a commission to look into what happened on January 6. Should Kevin McCarthy be ready to speak – testify before this commission? After all, he is one of the few people we know of who actually spoke to Donald Trump during the attack.
Cheney: He absolutely should, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he was subpoenaed. I think he made it very clear, and said publicly, that he had information about the president’s state of mind that day. The elements of this commission are exactly as they should be. I am very happy that they rejected Chief McCarthy’s suggestions that we should water down the board somehow. It’s really important to just focus on January 6 and the events leading up to it.
Karl: So you would be happy to receive a subpoena to have Kevin McCarthy testify before this committee?
Cheney: I would anticipate that, you know – I hope he doesn’t need a subpoena, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was subpoenaed.
