Opinion: No wonder the Arizona congressman has ignored a subpoena and is afraid to appear before the House committee investigating the attack on the Capitol.

Rep. Andy Biggs has called the committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol ‘pure political theater.’

Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers didn’t waver during his testimony before the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

He appeared. He swore to tell the truth. He honored his oath.

Just as he had done in the dark days after the 2020 presidential election, when President Donald Trump and his unquestioning lapdogs tried to pressure Bowers into illegally decertifying Arizona’s election results.

Bowers had asked for proof of election fraud from Trump’s people. He’d asked again and again. And he got nothing.

Still, he was asked to decertify the electors by those who called themselves fellow Republicans. He was asked to violate his oath of office and the entire democratic premise on which the country is based.

And he would not do it.

Biggs was among those pressuring Bowers

Among those asking him, it turns out, was Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs.

A while back the committee issued subpoenas to Biggs and other members of Congress, saying in part that they want to hear from “those who had direct conversations with President Trump leading up to and during the attack, and those who were involved in the planning and coordination of certain activities on and before Jan. 6.”

Biggs called the committee “pure political theater.” He said the members are conducting a “baseless witch hunt.”
