Rep. Thompson confirms insurrectionists had communications with members of Congress.
Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson said there'd be "no reluctance" to subpoena lawmakers who don't cooperate with the committee.
The chair of the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection, Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, confirmed to MSNBC’s Chuck Todd in an interview Sunday that the committee has received information that insurrectionists communicated with members of Congress.
“Have you seen any evidence, or do you have any indication that maybe members of Congress assisted any of the rioters on that day,” Todd asked on Meet The Press, per Mediaite.
Thompson said the Jan. 6 committee has heard from some members directly while others have been referred by other members of Congress.
He added that there would be “no reluctance” to subpoena members who fail to cooperate with the bipartisan panel.
The attack occurred on the day that Congress was constitutionally bound to certify the results of the election. »
