Attorney says Meadows won’t cooperate with Jan. 6 panel

Attorney George Terwilliger said in a letter Tuesday a deposition would be “untenable” because the panel “has no intention of respecting boundaries” concerning questions former President Donald Trump has claimed are off-limits because of executive privilege.

Terwilliger also says he learned over the weekend the committee issued a subpoena to a third-party communications provider he said would include “intensely personal” information. A spokesperson for the panel has no comment on Terwilliger’s letter.
