Reps. Chip Roy and Thomas Massie Demand Answers From Attorney General on Harsh Mistreatment of Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol Protesters

I wonder what would happen if these two Congressmen were to compel, threw a subpoena, each of the prisoners to testify in person at one of their comity? Could the DOJ stop them from being presented?
