House panel investigating Capitol insurrection recommends contempt charges for Mark Meadows.

House lawmakers are anticipated to vote on a resolution on Tuesday that would refer criminal contempt of Congress charges against the former White House chief of staff to the Justice Department.

The House panel investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol voted unanimously late Monday to recommend contempt charges against Meadows.


The House Rules Committee debated the measure early Tuesday. Lawmakers revealed a series of text messages that Meadows received from other lawmakers as the January 6 insurrection unfolded, according to multiple reports.

Fox News personalities and Donald Trump Jr. were among those who reached out to Meadows as the attack was underway.
