Jan. 6 committee says it will recommend criminal contempt charges against Mark Meadows if he doesn't

Source: Business Insider

appear for his scheduled deposition

The chair and vice chair of the House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot said it is prepared to recommend criminal contempt charges against former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.

Meadows' attorney said in a letter to the panel Tuesday that Meadows' deposition, scheduled for Wednesday, is "untenable" because the committee "has no intention of respecting boundaries" related to former President Donald Trump's broad assertions of executive privilege regarding the Capitol riot investigation.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, a member of the January 6 investigatory panel, said last week that Meadows undermined his own argument for withholding information from the committee because he wrote about matters related to the Capitol riot in his new memoir.

"Tomorrow's deposition, which was scheduled at Mr. Meadows's request, will go forward as planned," committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson and vice chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney said in their Tuesday statement. "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."

4. Trump can "assert" executive privilege all he wants, but...

the current president has the final say.
