Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Chiefs of staff and aides to House Jan. 6 committee warned to prepare for 'bombshells' ahead of public hearing, report says”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Chiefs of staff and other aides to members of the House Select Committee investigating January 6 were warned to prepare for "bombshells" ahead of public hearings next month. 

The warning came Friday on a weekly call with committee staff, Axios reported, citing two sources that were on the call. A security meeting with the US Capitol Police is scheduled for May 20 to prepare lawmakers and their staff for the public hearings, which are due to begin on June 9. 

Last week, the January 6 committee issued subpoenas for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, as well as Reps. Jim Jordan, Scott Perry, Mo Brooks, and Andy Biggs.

All of the subpoenas demand that the lawmakers appear for depositions by the end of the month, although it remains unclear how the committee will move to enforce the demand if Republicans refuse to cooperate. 

Rep. Jamie Raskin, who serves on the January 6 committee, said he believes his Republican colleagues will join "the vast majority of people" and cooperate with the investigation.
