The House Jan. 6 committee has urged the Justice Department to bring criminal charges against former President Donald Trump for the Capitol insurrection.

It also recommended ethics investigations for a handful of lawmakers, including Arizona’s Andy Biggs.

The committee issued subpoenas against Republican leader Kevin McCarthy and three other GOP lawmakers — all of whom refused to comply.

It says the lawmakers have crucial information about the insurrection and the action of the former president’s attempt to challenge the 2020 election.

The panel investigated the role Biggs played in bringing protesters to Washington and in challenging the election results.

The House Jan. 6 committee made the ethics inquiry recommendation in its final public hearing Monday.

Biggs has dismissed the committee’s work as a political stunt.
