The January 6th Select Committee, the Hearings, and Subpoenas

After failing to form a bipartisan committee to investigate the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol Complex, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi instead formed a select committee. However, accusations of partisanship have been leveled at the committee, particularly after Pelosi eliminated House Minority Leader McCarthy's offered committee members - representatives Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio.
Last week, police officers from the U.S. Capitol Police and Washington, D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department appeared before the committee, giving their accounts of what happened that day. Since the hearings have started, the subject of subpoenas has come up, particularly for those who spoke with former President Trump that day. Representative Adam Kinzinger, one of the Republican committee members, indicated that this committee would use its subpoena power stating “I would expect to see a significant amount of subpoenas.”
So will this select committee use their subpoena power? And how difficult will it be to get members of Congress, and maybe even the former president to testify before the panel? On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams is joined by professor David A. Super from Georgetown Law, as they take a look at the creation of the House select committee and the investigation of January 6th. Craig and David discuss the hearings, the possibility of using subpoenas, and where this is all headed.
