Committee Recommends To Lock Up Mark Meadows In Criminal Contempt

TOPLINE

A House committee which was investigating the Capitol riot recommended holding Mark Meadows, former chief of staff to President Donald Trump, in contempt Monday, referring him to the Department of Justice for possible charges — the third Trump affiliate to face the committee’s reprimand for refusing to submit documents about the riot.

KEY FACTS

  • The committee voted without exception to recommend contempt for Meadows.
  • That recommendation now heads to the full Home of Representatives for consideration, with a vote taking location as early as Tuesday.
  • If the House votes to lock up Meadows in contempt, the DOJ could choose to bring him before a federal grand jury, which could indict him for contempt of Congress.

TANGENT

The committee has been also recommended that Trump’s former advisor Steve Bannon and former legal counsel Jeffrey Clark be held in contempt for refusing to comply with subpoenas. A grand jury contaminates Bannon on two counts of contempt in November. His trial date is already set for July 18.
