President Joe Biden said on Friday the Justice Department should prosecute people who defy subpoenas to testify before a congressional select committee probing the deadly Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol.
“I hope that the committee goes after them and holds them accountable,” Biden said, referring to the House of Representatives Select Committee investigating the riot.
Asked whether he believed the Justice Department should prosecute, Biden told reporters, “I do, yes.”
The committee plans to vote on Tuesday on adopting a contempt of Congress report against Steve Bannon, a longtime adviser to former President Donald Trump who has not complied with the committee’s subpoena.
Trump urged former aides to refuse to cooperate, citing executive privilege, which legal experts in turn dispute and Biden has refused to acknowledge.
If the committee approves the contempt case against Bannon, it will go to a full House vote. From there, the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland would decide whether to pursue prosecution.
In response to Biden’s remarks on Friday, a Justice Department spokesperson told ABC News that the department “will make its own independent decisions in all prosecutions based solely on the facts and the law.”
Hundreds of protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6 in an unsuccessful attempt to overturn Trump’s election defeat by Biden. Several deaths, injuries and Capitol officer suicides have been linked to the event.
The committee has subpoenaed other officials including former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, Trump former chief of staff Mark Meadows, deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino and former Defense Department official Kash Patel.

You can tell by the Liberal Slant.
IN his demented state, Biden has a lot of nerve, considering that Harvard Law Professor Jonathan Turley has called for a special prosecutor to investigate Hunter Biden, James Biden, and Joe Biden’s lucrative Foreign Affairs “Consulting” Business, along with the infamous laptop.
Not only is #BareShelvesBiden attempting a misdirection play, Pelosi is covering her a@@, also.
Simple. She is covering her a@@.
As anyone who has halfway been paying attention knows, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in charge of the Capitol Police, who opened the doors for the rioters to enter the Capitol Building.
Now, boys and girls, I’m just spit-balling here, but there a several things that just do not add up in Pelosi and the Democrats’ version of what happened on January 6, 2021.
Information has come out that the “insurrection” was pre-planned. An allegation proven by the fact that pipe bombs were planted and found before the end of President Trump’s speech that day.
Also, the “rioters” were already “storming” the Capitol while Trump was still speaking.
And, why did Pelosi and McConnell block the request for 10,000 National Guard Troops from President Trump, himself?
Oh, and why did the Capitol Police Officers guarding the Capital Building let the rioters in?
By the way, of the two hundred fifty people, out of the tens of thousands who were at Trump’s Speech, arrested for their actions that day, they are finding nut jobs who DID NOT VOTE FOR TRUMP.
In fact, they did not even vote in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Y’know, Pelosi sure is reticent to talk about her duties as Speaker of the House as they pertain to the “insurrection”.
I hope that I do not sound like a conspiracy theorist, but…what if the entire “insurgence” on January 6th was not just preplanned but it was a political frame job by Pelosi and the Democrat Elite.
Come to think of it, my supposition is not that far-fetched when you consider the same crowd attempted to unconstitutionally impeach a private citizen simply because they were overcome with Trump Derangement Syndrome and they did not want to him to be able to run for President again in 2024 or be involved in politics in any way.
And, now those same professional politicians are going to to provide cover for themselves with a “9/11-Style Commission”, once again going after a private citizen in a vendetta which the entire nation has already recognized to be wrong and not important to the needs of our country and her people .
This is nothing but a Kangaroo Court presided on by a bunch of hypocrites trying to divert Americans’ attention from the fact that they are in the midst of radically changing our Constitutional Republic into a Marxist Nation.
No wonder Trump has invoked “Executive Privilege”
