(AP) — The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol insurrection is preparing to vote on pursuing contempt charges against a former Justice Department official.

The vote expected Wednesday comes as the committee aggressively seeks to gain answers about the violent attack by former President Donald Trump’s supporters. Jeffrey Clark is a former Justice Department lawyer who aligned with Trump as Trump tried to overturn his election defeat. Clark appeared for a deposition last month but refused to answer any questions.

Meanwhile, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has agreed to cooperate with the panel on a limited basis.
