Rep. Liz Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming who is the committee’s vice chair, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” on Sunday that the committee is speaking with Thomas’s counsel.

“We certainly hope she will voluntarily agree, but the committee is fully prepared to consider a subpoena if she doesn’t. I hope it doesn’t come to that. I hope she will come in voluntarily,” Cheney said. “So it’s very important for us to talk to her and like I said, I hope she will voluntarily agree to do this, but I’m sure we’ll consider a subpoena if she doesn’t.”

The committee has asked Thomas, a conservative activist, to meet with the panel and provide documents that may be relevant to the investigation. The commission has email correspondence between Thomas and former President Donald Trump’s election attorney John Eastman, as well as texts between her and Trump’s White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. The lyrics state that Thomas is urging Meadows to continue the fight to undo the results of the 2020 presidential election. Eastman and Meadows have also been the subject of the commission’s investigation.

A lawyer for Thomas said in a letter to the House Committee last month that he “does not believe there is currently sufficient basis to speak with” Thomas.

No decision yet on Trump’s criminal references

Cheney also said the committee has not decided whether to criminalize President Donald Trump, but believes Trump has violated the oath of office and that it is “definitely something we are looking at.”

“I think Donald Trump, the violation of his oath of office, the violation of the Constitution that he engaged in, is the most serious misconduct of any president in the history of our nation. I think, as I said, the committee has not yet decided whether or not we will make criminal referrals. We take that very seriously. And I would also like to say that the Justice Department is certainly very focused based on what we are seeing publicly about what constitutes the largest criminal investigation in America is history. But I have no doubt that the President of the United States is unfit for further office.”

Cheney also said she believes the Secret Service’s missing texts are “deeply disturbing.”

“I also know that what we have seen in terms of what has happened over the course of the course, which we have become aware of in recent weeks, is very disturbing,” she said. “We’ll get to the bottom of it.”

Cheney on her future

Cheney said her work on the Jan. 6 committee is “the single most important thing I’ve ever done professionally,” told Tapper that even if she loses her upcoming reelection race because of her committee work, there was “no doubt” it would still be the worth serving on it.

She called her primary race “a highly unusual moment, especially in American politics.”

“I will also say this, I am not going to lie. I am not going to say things that are not true about the election,” she said. “My opponents certainly do that just to get elected… if I have to choose between retaining a seat in the House of Representatives, or protecting the constitutional republic and making sure the American people tell the truth about Donald Trump.” know, I will I go every day to choose the Constitution and the truth.”

This story has been updated with more from the interview with Cheney.
