Jan. 6 panel urges judge to allow ex-Trump aide Meadows' testimony

Matk MeadowsFormer White House chief of staff Mark Meadows' conversations with then-President Donald Trump during last year's siege on the U.S. Capitol should not be shielded from lawmakers, a lawyer for the congressional committee probing the riots told a judge in Washington on Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols did not immediately rule on whether the subpoenaed communications must be provided to the Jan. 6 committee. Meadows' attorneys say the messages are protected by executive privilege, which allows presidential communications with top aides to remain private, and that Meadows has "absolute immunity" from being called to testify.

The hearing was held days after a federal judge in Florida agreed in a separate case to a third-party review of documents seized from Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort to determine whether they are protected by executive privilege.
