January 6th Committee Releases Statement After DOJ GIves Mark Meadows & Dan Scavino A Pass

Peter Navarro was arrested on Friday after an indictment for contempt of Congress, as he continued to refuse to comply with a Congressional subpoena. However, two other individuals who had also been referred for criminal prosecution for refusal to comply were not charged. The January 6th Committee had some things to say about this.

The New York Times reported on Friday that the Department of Justice was declining to charge Dan Scavino and Mark Meadows, both of whom the January 6th Committee had subpoenaed for testimony about the events leading up to the attack on Congress.

A statement from the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves, declared that his office had completed review of all contempt cases referred by the January 6th Committee, and “Based on the individual facts and circumstances of their alleged contempt, my office will not be initiating prosecutions for criminal contempt as requested in the referral against Messrs. Meadows and Scavino.”

The January 6th Committee responded, expressing appreciation that the case against Navarro is moving forward, and disappointment regarding the other two cases.

Meadows, at least, was briefly cooperating with the January 6th Committee, turning over a mass of documents, including text messages, that have served to reveal connections with other individuals who may have been a part of the lead-up to the attack, and that many individuals connected to Donald Trump seemed to believe he had the power to stop the attack.

The January 6th Committee’s public hearings begin in the coming week.
