The Witch Hunt commences, and Nancy Pelosi has illicit the help of some of the most vile, slimy lawmakers to do her dirty work. Arguably one of the most vile, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, appeared on television to announce what’s to come.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger said Sunday that he expects “a significant number of subpoenas for a lot of people,” including members of his own party, over the investigation into the events on Jan. 6 in Washington D.C.
Rep. Liz Cheney and Kinzinger are the two Republicans selected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to preside on the “bipartisan” select committee investigating the causes and buildup to the protests earlier this year.
Kinzinger even threw support behind subpoenaing his boss, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
“I would support subpoenas to anybody that can shed light on that — if that’s the leader, that’s the leader,” the Illinois Republican said.
"It's going to be a thorough investigation, that's for sure."

The commission held its first meeting last Thursday, and gave a tiny glimpse of what’s to come — ultra-left partisan politics aimed at locking up Donald Trump for crimes he didn’t commit.
During the hearing, Kinzinger underscored “I’m a conservative” and made pleas against turning the investigation into a “partisan fight,” even as McCarthy labeled the two GOP members on the panel as “Pelosi Republicans.”
Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, has suggested that Cheney and Kinzinger could essentially be spies for the Democrats, noting that they were appointed by the Democratic House leader.
McCarthy attempted to make a resolution with Pelosi to appoint five of his picks to the Jan. 6 committee but was blocked by Democrats on July 26 following a vote. “Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to seat all five Republican Members directly harms the legitimacy, credibility, and integrity of the Select Committee,” the minority leader wrote in his resolution.
His last-ditch attempt came just days after he said he would pull all of his Republican appointee suggestions on July 21, when Pelosi blocked two of the five GOP appointees from participating.
The Jan. 6 committee will convene virtually before the House breaks for August recess, with additional plans to meet with Justice Department officials next week, according to Chairman Bennie Thompson.
Susan Collins calls the Jan. 6 select committee "partisan," says "I do not think it was right" for Pelosi to block Jim Jordan and Jim Banks from serving on it.
