If Republicans win a majority in the House of Representatives come November, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is among several high-ranking Democrats that may be required to testify at the committee investigating the capital storming, which occurred nearly two years ago.

Republicans have expressed outrage that a number of the GOP’s leadership, including House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, have been subpoenaed over the January 6th investigation. Should they win committee chairman positions that would accompany winning a majority in the house, Republicans could issue subpoenas of their own — and they've hinted they're likely to turn the tables on Democratic leadership.

Bobby Carter, a congressional representative from Georgia, says Pelosi should top the list of potential subpoenas.

"This is setting the precedent, and we're just not gonna lie down and let this happen," he said. "There are serious questions about her role on January 6 and exactly what she did and what she didn't do. And we need to get to the bottom of that."

Tensions have been high between party leadership. The threat of subpoenas — and those already issued — have further driven tensions on both sides of the aisle.

Pelosi has said she’s not afraid of being required to testify.

"I’m never afraid of precedent," she said. "We’re seeking the truth, and we’re not going to be cowards about it."
