Trump’s Chief of Staff Will Cooperate With Jan. 6 Committee

Mark Meadows Cbs

Mark Meadows, chief of staff to former President Trump, has agreed to cooperate with the investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

It comes after the committee voted to hold Trump advisor Steve Bannon in criminal contempt for refusing to cooperate.

Trump has ordered all his former staff to ignore the committee’s subpoenas.

In the courtroom, the former president’s lawyers are still trying to stop call records and handwritten notes related to the Capitol riot from being released.

California Congressman Pete Aguilar says Trump is trying to obstruct the investigation to protect his self-interest.

Aguilar says the documents could shed light on new reports that Trump spent hours prior to the insurrection talking to advisors about ways to stop Joe Biden’s presidential win from being certified.
