Jan. 6 committee threatens Mark Meadows with contempt charge

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s House select committee Jan. 6 has threatened Mark Meadows, former chief of staff to former President Donald Trump, with contempt if he does not appear before their group with expected documents by Friday.

The committee announced a subpoena regarding Meadows in September related to involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“Although you previously indicated that your firm was searching records that Mr. Meadows provided to you, more than enough time has passed for you to complete your review,” the letter to Meadows’ attorney George Terwilliger said.

The committee has already voted on one Trump connection in contempt. Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon was referred to the Justice Department in October.

Meadows made it clear on Thursday he does not intend to comply with the committee’s deadline.

The matter will mark an interesting moment in the committee’s efforts as it continues to target Trump officials as part of its investigation.
