Meadows pushes for speedy Supreme Court decision on Trump’s executive privilege

Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is pleading with the Supreme Court to expedite its consideration of former President Donald Trump’s lawsuit to block the release of executive branch records to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol.

In an amicus brief filed Friday, Mr. Meadows’ lawyer, George Terwilliger III said the former president’s case will have important implications on legal proceedings involving several witnesses who have balked committee demands citing the president’s claims of executive privilege.

“[Mr. Meadows] and others like him therefore face the difficult choice between volunteering potentially privileged information in defiance of the President under whom they served or to resist a congressional subpoena at great personal expense and with the threat of potential prosecution,” Mr. Terwilliger wrote.
