House investigators said Thursday that they have issued subpoenas to Republican Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs and four other GOP lawmakers as part of their probe into the violent Jan. 6 insurrection, an extraordinary step that has little precedent and is certain to further inflame partisan tensions over the 2021 attack.

The Jan. 6 panel’s subpoenas for Biggs and Republican Reps. Kevin McCarthy of California, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, and Mo Brooks of Alabama come as the investigation is winding down and as the panel prepares for a series of public hearings this summer.
