On Monday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," former federal prosecutor Elie Honig reacted to the new January 6 committee subpoenas against conspiracy theory webcaster Alex Jones and longtime Trump ally Roger Stone — and reiterated the urgent need for Congress to give teeth to these information requests.
"The chances of Roger Stone and Alex Jones cooperating, testifying, and testifying truthfully are essentially zero — I guess, I'd say negative," said Honig. "But that raises the bigger question, which is the committee has done a good job, a commendable job of being aggressive in who it's subpoenaing, but issuing the subpoenas is the easy part. The question is, do they have the political will to back these up and to force people to comply? Because that line of people who are sure to defy is getting longer and longer and longer."
"We have got Bannon," continued Honig, referring to the contempt of Congress charges filed against the former White House strategist. "I would not count on Michael Flynn, Stephen Miller, Kayleigh McEnany, now these two, Stone and Jones, cooperating. So there is only two ways this goes. Option A is the committee holds them in contempt, sends it over to DOJ, and DOJ charges. And Option B is these subpoenas just get openly defied, with no consequence for anybody."
