Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows will stop cooperating with the House January 6th Inquisition despite previous efforts to work with them. 

Meadows and his attorney, George Terwilliger, informed the committee Tuesday morning after Meadows could not come to terms with lawmakers on an arrangement to work with them. 

“We have made efforts over many weeks to reach an accommodation with the committee,” Terwilliger told Fox News. 

“Over the last several weeks, Mr. Meadows has consistently sought in good faith to pursue an accommodation with the Select Committee and up until yesterday we believed that could be obtained,” Terwilliger said in a letter to Rep. Bennie Thompson and Rep. Liz Cheney. He added that Meadows “consistently communicated” that he could not make “a unilateral decision to waive Executive Privilege claims asserted by the former president.” 

“The chairman of the committee...publicly said that another witness’s claiming of the Fifth Amendment would be tantamount to an admission of guilt,” Terwilliger said, adding that this called into question “exactly what is going on with this committee.” 

“It is well-established that Congress’ subpoena authority is limited to the pursuit of a legitimate legislative purpose,” he continued. “Congress has no authority to conduct law enforcement investigations or free-standing ‘fact finding’ missions.”
