House committee investigating Jan. 6 insurrection should subpoena Reps. Biggs and Gosar

Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar

Opinion By E.J. Montini | Arizona Republic

Arizona Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar have got some splainin’ to do and they should be required to do so – under oath – in front of the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection.

On Tuesday the committee in Washington heard from two members of the Capitol Police and two members of the Metropolitan Police who defended members of Congress on that awful day and who came under attack themselves.

Officer David Hodges, who was nearly crushed to death by rioters he repeatedly referred to as “terrorists” (because that’s what they were) said, “To my perpetual confusion, I saw the thin blue line flag, a symbol of support from law enforcement more than once being carried by the terrorists as they ignored our commands and continued to assault us.”

Officer Harry Dunn, a black man who not only was physically assaulted by endured all manner of ugly racial epitaphs, emphasized the fact that not only should those who stormed the Capitol be called to account, but those who enabled and encouraged them.

That’s where Biggs and Gosar come in.
