Lawmakers investigating Capitol riot to hold ex-Trump chief of staff in contempt – BBC News

US lawmakers investigating the January Capitol riot say they will hold former Trump chief of staff, Mark Meadows, in criminal contempt.

The House Select Committee said it had “no choice” but to seek charges over his refusal to comply with its inquiry.

Mr Meadows had previously provided the bipartisan panel with information, but said this week he would not co-operate.

On Wednesday, he sued the committee members, seeking to nullify subpoenas they issued.

Mr Meadows will be the third ex-Trump aide to be held in contempt by the panel.
