Mark Meadows to Testify Before House Jan. 6 Cmte.; Panel Pursues Jeffrey Clark Contempt Charges

HeadlineDec 01, 2021

On Tuesday, the House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol insurrection questioned Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who then-President Trump called in January, asking him to “find” some 11,000 votes that would put him ahead of Biden in Georgia’s election tally. Raffensperger refused to help Trump overturn the results.

The committee is expected to move forward today with criminal contempt proceedings against former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark for refusing to comply with a committee subpoena. The full House would then have to vote in favor of sending the matter to the Justice Department for prosecution.

Meanwhile, Mark Meadows, the former White House chief of staff under Trump, has handed over documents to the House committee and will testify before the panel. In related news, Meadows has revealed in his new memoir that Trump tested positive for COVID-19 three days before his first debate with Joe Biden in September 2020 but went on to the debate, and other public events, without publicly revealing his positive test.
