The Jan. 6 select committee says four House Republicans — including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy — violated congressional ethics rules by defying subpoenas for testimony and documents.

The panel referred the lawmakers for a review by the bipartisan ethics committee, which is seen as unlikely to take action against the members. In addition to McCarthy, three other lawmakers were referred for defying subpoenas: Reps. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.).

Another GOP member who ignored the summons, Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, is leaving Congress after this year and will be out of the ethics panel’s reach.
