Nancy Pelosi is Possibly Facing a Subpoena After the November Midterms

As Democrats control Congress, they’ve had the luxury of putting together a January 6 commission to investigate the ins and outs of what happened that day.

However, this commission continues to face accusations of bias and lack of integrity. Much of the country believes the January 6 commission is more about attacking Republicans than truly looking at all the facts of what happened over one year ago.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had a strong hand in helping craft this commission, including choosing its members. Recently, the January 6 commission chose to subpoena a series of Republicans, including Reps. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Mo Brooks (R-AL), and others.

However, the tables may very well turn after the November midterm elections.

Fresh Subpoenas to Democrats?
If Republicans take back the House of Representatives, several GOP members will hold seats as committee members and other leadership roles in the party.

House Republicans, such as Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA), have been clear that Pelosi and other Democrats will likely be on the receiving end of subpoenas soon enough.

Carter expressed how the GOP has a very clear interest in knowing the extent of Pelosi’s communications on January 6 last year. Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) has also backed this up, stating he won’t be shocked by subpoenas carried out against Democrats.

Many House Republicans, to this day, believe Pelosi’s responsible for covering up certain things on January 6 and should be made to answer for it.

To this end, however, Pelosi claims she’s not worried about subpoenas. The California Democrat asserted she and the January 6 committee are looking for “the truth” and won’t act as “cowards” in the process.

If Pelosi were issued a subpoena by House Republicans later down the line, it would likely involve the security measures that were put in place as January 6 arrived.

Additional issues to come up would also involve how security measures may have impacted the events on January 6.

More Possible Changes Coming Pelosi’s Way
Should Republicans take back the House of Representatives in November, Pelosi will also no longer be the Speaker of the House.

Currently, that role appears most likely to go to McCarthy, the House Minority Leader. However, a vote will have to take place before anything is officially confirmed.

Pelosi and other Democrats have warned that GOP wins in the midterms would pose “danger” to the democracy of the United States. Meanwhile, polls show that most Americans feel differently and intend to vote Republicans back into the House majority.
