Meadows No Longer Cooperating with Jan. 6 Panel

By T. Thompson In Latest News with Comments Off on Meadows No Longer Cooperating with Jan. 6 Panel

The House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot vowed to launch criminal contempt charges against the Trump administration’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows.

This week, Meadows reversed course, telling the committee that he wouldn’t be attending his scheduled deposition. He’d set the date after initially refusing to cooperate with the committee.

Meadows accused the committee of abusing its powers and undermining former President Donald Trump’s executive privilege authority.

The panel’s leaders, Reps. Bennie Thomspon (D-MS) and Liz Cheney (R-WY), said they intend to move forward with the scheduled deposition “as planned.”

“If indeed Mr. Meadows refuses to appear, the Select Committee will be left no choice but to advance contempt proceedings and recommend that the body in which Mr. Meadows once served refer him for criminal prosecution,” Thompson said in a statement.
