BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Thursday, the panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riots subpoenaed five GOP lawmakers including GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
In a statement, McCarthy said he was unaware of the subpoena.
“I have not seen the subpoena. I guess they sent it to you guys before they sent it to me,” McCarthy said to a press group Thursday.
“My view on the committee has not changed,” McCarthy added. “They are not conducting a legitimate investigation. It seems as though they just want to go after their political opponents.”
McCarthy went on to change the subject to other issues.
Reps. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) also received subpoenas.
