The committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol said it’s moving forward with holding Trump ally Steven Bannon in criminal contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena. Bannon’s lawyer wrote in a letter that his client won’t provide testimony or documents until the committee reaches an agreement with former President Trump over executive privilege or a court says otherwise. Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger is a member of the committee. He tells Anderson Cooper anybody who is "either being subpoenaed now or will be in the future, think twice before you reject a lawful order from Congress." Plus, former FBI Deputy Director and current CNN senior law enforcement analyst Andrew McCabe was once fired by Trump hours before his retirement. He’s settled a lawsuit with the Justice Department that allows him to officially retire, recoup hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and his pension. He tells AC360 "it's an incredible relief."
