Jan. 6 committee request interview, records from McCarthy
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House panel investigating the U.S. Capitol insurrection has requested an interview and records from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, shifting their investigation to a top ally of former President Donald Trump in Congress.
Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, Democratic chairman of the panel, requested Wednesday that McCarthy provide information to the nine-member panel regarding the violence that took place last January.
Rep. Thompson also requested McCarthy’s communications with former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in the days prior to the attack.
The request also seeks information about McCarthy’s conversations with Trump “before, during and after” the riot.
