Meadows reaches initial cooperation deal with Jan. 6 committee

Former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has reached an initial deal to cooperate with the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, providing documents and agreeing to testify before the panel.

“Mr. Meadows has been engaging with the Select Committee through his attorney. He has produced records to the committee and will soon appear for an initial deposition,” Chair Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said Tuesday.

“The Select Committee expects all witnesses, including Mr. Meadows, to provide all information requested and that the Select Committee is lawfully entitled to receive. The committee will continue to assess his degree of compliance with our subpoena after the deposition.”

The tenuous agreement comes as the committee is poised to censure its second witness. The committee announced Monday that it will hold a vote later this week to censure former Justice Department attorney Jeffrey Clark after he failed to cooperate with the committee — a move that would leave his former employer to prosecute him alongside one-time White House strategist Steve Bannon.
