The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riots will weigh subpoenaing Virginia “Ginni” Thomas if she does not agree to a voluntary interview with the committee, Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo, said Sunday.
Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Cheney, vice chair of the panel, said the committee remained “engaged” with Thomas’ lawyer and hopes “she will agree to come in voluntarily.
“But the committee is fully prepared to contemplate a subpoena if she does not,” Cheney told host Jake Tapper. “I hope it doesn’t get to that. I hope she will come in voluntarily. We’ve certainly spoken with numbers of people who are similarly situated in terms of the discussions that she was having that you’ve mentioned.”
