  • "I would support subpoenas to anybody that can shed light on that, if that's the leader that's the leader," Kinzinger said, adding that he wants to hear from anyone who spoke with former President Donald Trump on Jan. 6.

  • "I would expect to see a significant number of subpoenas for a lot of people," he added.

State of play: Kinzinger and Rep. Liz Cheney (R.-Wyo.) are the sole Republicans serving on the House select committee.
