Former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is reportedly ceasing cooperation with the House Select Committee investigating the events of Jan. 6 on the U.S. Capitol, despite previous efforts to work with them, according to Fox News.
The move comes after Meadows and his attorney George Terwilliger “could not come to terms with lawmakers on an arrangement to work with them,” the attorney told Fox News.
“Terwilliger said Meadows was looking to appear voluntarily before the committee and answer questions that Meadows believed were not protected by executive privilege. … Over the weekend, however, the committee demonstrated that they indeed planned to look into privileged subject matters, the attorney said,” according to the report.
Meadows and Terwilliger plan to officially notify the committee Tuesday morning, Fox News stated.
