Hi there,

Democracy Now is committed to bringing you the stories and perspectives you won't hear anywhere else, from the peace activists demanding an end to war to Indigenous leaders fighting to stop fossil fuel extraction and save the planet. Our independent reporting is only possible because we’re funded by you—not by the weapons manufacturers when we cover war or gun violence, not by the oil, gas, coal, or nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis. Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Jan. 6 Committee Subpoenas Five Republican Lawmakers Including Kevin McCarthy

HeadlineMay 13, 2022

The House committee probing the January 6 Capitol riot has subpoenaed five Republican congressmembers — including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy — after they refused to voluntarily cooperate with the investigation. Also subpoenaed are Congressmembers Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Jim Jordan of Ohio and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania. January 6 committee member Adam Schiff spoke to reporters on Capitol Hill Thursday.

Rep. Adam Schiff: “Some were involved in the effort to overturn the election. Some spoke at the rally before the attack. One has said publicly that the president called him to rescind the election. They clearly have relevant testimony.”
