WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department has declined to cost former White House chief of workers Mark Meadows and one other aide to former President Donald Trump, Dan Scavino, for contempt of Congress for his or her defiance of subpoenas within the Jan. 6 congressional investigation.
That’s in accordance with an individual accustomed to a letter despatched by the Justice Department to a lawyer for the House of Representatives on Friday. The particular person was not approved to debate the matter publicly and was granted anonymity.
The motion got here the identical day because the Justice Department stated a grand jury had indicted Peter Navarro, a commerce adviser within the Trump White House, for his refusal to cooperate with the committee’s investigation.
The New York Times first reported the choice to not prosecute.
