The House 1/6 Committee issued a new round of subpoenas on Tuesday that includes former White House propagandist Kayleigh McEnany. And Americans are ecstatic about it.
McEnany lied to the American people multiple times as Press Secretary, including about the 2020 Election by repeating Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud. She was also present with Trump as he watched the Capitol insurrection unfold, therefore making her a witness. Trump’s supporters violently stormed the building on January 6th in an attempt to overthrow democracy and install Trump as a dictator.
Now she is being subpoenaed along with nine other Trump officials and could be subject to perjury charges or worse if she lies or refuses to comply. Steve Bannon refused to comply and now charges against him have been referred to the Justice Department.
It’s about time Kayleigh McEnany is held accountable for her involvement with the events of January 6th, a feeling Americans expressed on Twitter as they cheered the committee’s action.
There’s a subpoena with Kayleigh McEnany’s name on it. I told you Christmas wasn’t canceled. 🤣

If lie detectors worked the same way as metal detectors, Kayleigh McEnany would be the easiest for process servers to find.

How did the Big Lie and GOP election fraud conspiracy theories set the stage for the siege of the Capitol? New subpoenas for Stephen Miller, Kayleigh McEnany and other 1/6 superspreaders will help us connect disinformation and disunion.

It’s going to be really awkward when Kayleigh McEnany walks into the prison cafeteria and Kellyanne Conway is wearing the same outfit she is.

If Kayleigh McEnany testifies, and for once in her life doesn’t LIE — while it won’t exonerate her of her crimes, it would help mend a reputation that has already been damaged beyond repair. Unfortunately, McEnany will NEVER be able to completely get the stench of Trump off her.

Trump press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, other White House officials subpoenaed in Jan. 6 House probe https://t.co/MDILSrtdW2
This time, ‘…never lie to you’, has teeth upon conviction.
So, Choice 1 don’t lie, or Choice 2 Felony Perjury record.#DemVoice1#ONEV1 Z21

McEnany’s Twitter account is quiet since she was subpoenaed 🤪

This subpoena is great news but the committee needs to start strictly enforcing them if they are going to be effective. If the committee fails to force Trump’s stooges to take these subpoenas seriously, accountability will never happen and future insurrections will be enabled.
