The US Capitol Storming Committee has reserved a subpoena for former Vice President Mike Pence. “We’re not excluding anyone or anything at this point,” committee member Adam Schiff told CNN on Sunday when asked if there was a possibility Pence would be subpoenaed.
“We’re not taking anything off the table as far as the witnesses who haven’t testified yet,” the Democrat said. There are several “high-ranking personalities” that the committee of inquiry would like to interview. Schiff did not name names.
The investigative committee had interviewed hundreds of witnesses behind closed doors for months and examined large amounts of documents and evidence. He should clarify the background of the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021.
Most recently, the panel presented initial results at several public hearings. New details about the chaotic hours that day were revealed on Thursday – also with a view to Pence. Further public hearings are planned for next Tuesday and Thursday.
Supporters of then President Donald Trump had stormed the seat of parliament in Washington. Congress met there to formally confirm the election victory of Trump’s democratic challenger Joe Biden. The violent crowd wanted to prevent that.
