1/6 committee member, rep. Jamie Raskin, warned the organizers of Trump’s 1/6 rallies that one day they will have time to comply with subpoenas or face criminal reference.
Rep. Raskin tweeted:
Organizers of events of January 6 have 1 day left to comply with the summonses of the House and relevant records to the @ January6thCmte. Those who disregard a lawful order of Congress to cover up rebellious violence will in any case be prosecuted for criminal prosecution.

The 1/6 committee does not go crazy
The 1/6 committee has already announced that they will meet quick decision on criminal charges for Steve Bannon, who refused to comply with a subpoena.
The message that is being broadcast to anyone within earshot is that the committee is not confused. They are not going to let these witnesses duck, dodge and run the clock.
They have seen all the games that Trump and his associates play, and the committee is more than ready to use its powers to comply.
Republicans have been claiming for nine months that the attack on the Capitol and Trump rallies is unrelated.
If this is the case, the rally organizers should be happy to comply with the subpoenas and clear their names.
Since it looks like they will not comply, they get bad advice from Trump, they have something to hide, or both.
