Just a quick stub of a diary here. Adam Schiff has put to rest the idea that the 1/6 committee won’t refer subpoena scofflaws for criminal referrals to the DOJ. He’s specifically talking about Steve Bannon, who’s said he won’t comply with the subpoena from the committee because of executive privilege. Per Talking Points Memo (my emphasis below):
“Those who don’t cooperate with our committee are going to be the subject of criminal contempt,” he said. “We will vote on it in the House at the appropriate time, and we will refer to the Justice Department for prosecution.”
In addition to Bannon, the Jan. 6 committee has also subpoenaed ex-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Trump social media chief Dan Scavino and former Defense official Kash Patel.
Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) told CNN last week that Meadows and Patel are “engaging” with the panel.
