The House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol Riot riot confirmed that it will hold former president Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows in criminal contempt for noncompliance with the panel’s orders.

“The Select Committee is left with no choice but to advance contempt proceedings and recommend that the body in which Mr. Meadows once served refer him for criminal prosecution,” committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, wrote in a statement released Wednesday.

The development comes after Meadows formally announced he would refuse to continue cooperating with the probe, according to a letter obtained by CNN that Meadows’s attorney sent to the committee on Tuesday.

“We agreed to provide thousands of pages of responsive documents and Mr. Meadows was willing to appear voluntarily, not under compulsion of the Select Committee’s subpoena to him, for a deposition to answer questions about non-privileged matters,” attorney George J. Terwilliger III said. “Now actions by the Select Committee have made such an appearance untenable.”
