Mark Meadows, facing an imminent threat of criminal contempt of Congress charges, is suing Speaker Nancy Pelosi and members of the Jan. 6 select panel.
The former White House chief of staff has filed legal action against Pelosi, according to court records. As the Jan. 6 select panel prepares to take action against him, Meadows has claimed he can’t discuss matters that could be covered by executive privilege.
But the panel has rejected that claim, noting that President Joe Biden has not asserted privilege to block Meadows’ testimony.
A spokesperson for the Jan. 6 panel declined to comment.
