“If they continue to disregard the subpoenas, I’m going to highly encourage the authorities to pursue criminal contempt,” said Crow. “If you refuse a subpoena, there are consequences for you.”READ MORE: Owner Confirms Ice Castles Won't Be In Colorado's High Country This Winter
Three of four former aides have received subpoenas served to them.
Rage about the election compelled a mass of Trump supporters to violently storm the Capitol on Jan. 6 in an effort to disrupt the congressional certification of Biden’s victory. The rioters beat and bloodied an overwhelmed police force, sent lawmakers running for their lives and caused $1 million in damage. More than 630 people have been charged criminally in the riot, the largest prosecution in Justice Department history.MORE NEWS: 'This Is A Wakeup Call': Colorado Governor Says State Is Running Low On ICU Beds Due To COVID Cases
