The House of Representatives has voted to recommend the Justice Department pursue criminal charges against former White House Chief of Staff .

The vote came after Meadows refused to attend two scheduled depositions with the .

Other Republicans had vastly different responses to the developments.

Before the vote, Rep. Cheney directly responded to one of them:

Business Insider further reports:

Tuesday's vote follows the release of a 51-page document by the House committee on Monday, which included the resolution recommending to find Meadows in contempt of Congress.

The document included new revelations, including that Meadows wrote in an email that the National Guard was on standby to “protect pro Trump people” and that he used his own cellphone, two personal Gmail accounts, and the encrypted app Signal to conduct government business.

During a committee hearing on Monday evening, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming also revealed texts — sent by Trump family members, Fox News hosts, administration officials, members of Congress, and reporters — that called on Meadows to get former President to call off the rioters.

At the center of Meadows' refusal to comply with the committee's subpoena is his claim that he's shielded by Trump's assertion of executive privilege or his right to keep the information confidential. Trump's lawyer had previously advised the president's former aides, including Meadows, to defy the subpoena, on the same grounds.

    Meadows should be held in contempt. The fact that it took 187 minutes for Trump to condemn the riot that threatened lawmakers’ lives is a disgrace. The crowd even chanted “Hang Mike Pence” because of a lie.

      Does Eric Holder, Obama’s “wing man”, was held in contempt too for gun smuggling to Mexican cartels operation. U.S. border patrol agent was killed by one of these weapons.Was he prosecuted? No. How many people died here? One. Who? Air Force veteran executed without warning by federal agent. Any words of your infinite wisdom to explain this?

        I agree what Holder did was worse. Congress did hold Holder in contempt, as they should have. The Obama Justice Department didn’t do anything.

        It was beyond tragic that Ashli Babbit was shot. The officer who fatally shot her says he warned her, and people could see that some police had their guns drawn. They shout “gun” in the video. Another member of the mob said to a news crew minutes later, “a number of police and Secret Service were saying, ‘Get back, get down, get out of the way.’ She didn’t heed the call” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCuIxBzylyo&feature=youtu.be).

        Babbit tried to break through to the Speakers Lobby anyway, where members of Congress and their twentysomething staffers were huddling. Would you feel differently about someone who didn’t follow a police officer’s instructions in a different situation, like a traffic stop, and got shot? Asking in all seriousness.

      If that is what you believe you have scrambled eggs for brains. How can you state that comment with Donald j Trump we had about 4 years of law and order. Dems.leaders are dishonest the the bone.

    It has come to light that the “smoking gun email” they are talking about didn’t say what it does now, in fact it didn’t say it until Adam Schiff modified it. If anyone one should be charged with contempt of Congress it should be Schiff. We all know that this corrupt piece of crap did the same kind of things during the Trump=Russia collusion investigation. I guess it should be noted that I personally have nothing but contempt of this Congress-it is run by Democrats 100% and it’s the most corrupt and evil batch of swamp denizens ever assembled in one place.
