The first known request to a sitting member of Congress puts other Trump loyalists on notice that they may be next.
Earlier this month, a three-judge panel ruled that Trump’s executive privilege claims were without merit.
The Ohio congressman forwarded a text to Trump’s former chief of staff endorsing a plan to overthrow the 2020 election.
Mark Meadows likely knows a hell of a lot more than he’s saying about what really went down on January 6.
The measure now goes to the Department of Justice, which will make the final determination on whether to indict Meadows.
Trump’s actions — or inaction — during the breach of the Capitol could result in him eventually facing federal charges.
Meadows is the third Trump official to face contempt of Congress charges from the January 6 select committee.
The former president also falsely claimed that the real “insurrection” was the 2020 election itself.
Trump gave “no legal reason” for why Biden’s rejection of his executive privilege claims should be ignored.
The lawsuit appears to be a delay tactic, one member of the January 6 select committee suggested.
