Jan. 6 committee will make criminal referrals to DOJ

The House Select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol will make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice, though no decision has been made on the target of a referral or what allegations of crimes the potential referrals would cover.

“There’s general agreement we will do some referrals,” the committee chairman, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.), told reporters Tuesday, adding that there’s been no formal vote among committee members, nor have they voted on whom they will refer.

The committee will meet Tuesday evening when members are expected to discuss next steps.

After several high-profile public hearings over the summer, the committee is finalizing its work. Asked about the status of a final report, Thompson said that the committee is “going over printed materials now.”

The committee is still discussing how it will present the final report, Thompson added.

The panel voted previously to hold four former Trump administration officials in contempt of Congress for defying subpoenas, unanimously recommending charges against former White House adviser Stephen K. Bannon, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, former trade and manufacturing director Peter Navarro and former White House communications director Daniel Scavino Jr. The full House later voted to send those criminal referrals to the DOJ.

Bannon was convicted in July, while Navarro was charged and has pleaded not guilty. Meadows and Scavino have not been charged.
