(TruthandLiberty.com) – The partisan House Select Committee investigating the January 6 Capitol Hill riot is requesting that companies potentially violate federal law. On Tuesday, August 31, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) told Fox News Host Tucker Carlson that companies complying with the committee’s potentially illegal request would face extinction. The committee’s recent actions signal they may be preparing to subpoena phone records and data from the phones of conservative lawmakers.

The partisan committee, of which two outspoken anti-Trump Republicans are members, states it wants to know which members of Congress coordinated with rioters. Additionally, it stated it wants to learn of any communications conservative members had with the White House on that dreadful day. Greene said Democrats are leading America into uncharted water and that the opposition party is using communist tactics to achieve its goals. Tucker Carlson responded that Democrats want the text messages because they “don’t like your politics.”
Earlier in the day, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) strongly blasted the Democrats’ threat to subpoena private company records of members of Congress and private citizens exercising their Constitutional liberties. McCarthy stated if the companies comply with the Democrats’ request, they would be breaking federal laws that protect the personal information of individuals. He promises consequences against any companies that do fulfill the request when Republicans retake the House in 2022.
