Republicans are plotting “vengeance” on the Democrats’ partisan January 6th committee, according to a recent report by Axios.
“Key House Republicans are threatening to subpoena records of the Jan. 6 committee if the GOP retakes the majority next year — an escalation of the party’s effort to undercut the investigation’s findings,” Axios reported on Wednesday.
“While Republicans have been eager to move beyond what happened on Jan. 6, 2021, many want to use a GOP-controlled majority to frame their own narrative of what happened that day — and also raise questions about the Jan. 6 committee’s work and spending,” the report said.
A senior GOP aide on the House Administration Committee told Axios: “When Republicans retake the majority, we will exercise our oversight responsibilities including subpoena authority to review all transcripts and information that the committee has access to in order to identify the truth.”
Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN) has already requested documents from the Department of Homeland Security to investigate claims made by former White House aide and committee witness Cassidy Hutchinson, according to a report by the Federalist.
