“We will probably as a committee issue subpoenas either to witnesses or organizations within a week,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi.
On Monday, Thompson would not go into detail about which companies were cooperating with the select committee and which have been resisting the requests.
“Some have been good, some have been not so good,” Thompson said.
The panel has also asked a variety of telecommunication companies to preserve the records of a long list of individuals — including a group of current Republican members of Congress, who played some role in the “Stop the Steal” rally that served as the prelude to the Capitol insurrection — in the event the committee needs them.
Thompson said Monday that while subpoenas of individual lawmakers have not come up at this point, that does not mean it’s out of the question.
“They have not been discussed. But that does not mean it won’t happen,” he said.
