Today, Congressman Chris Pappas (NH-01) issued the following statement after voting to hold Mark Meadows in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena issued by the bipartisan Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol:

"No one is above the law, especially when it means providing the American people with information that can safeguard our democracy. We must prevent crises like the one we witnessed on January 6th from happening again, and flouting the rules of Congress is an unacceptable response to the Select Committee's work. I continue to hope we can move forward with this in a manner that will ensure the country has a full accounting of the events that occurred around the insurrection. Mark Meadows's failure to comply with a Congressional subpoena is a serious matter that cannot be ignored. This is about protecting our country, our Constitution, and our institutions, and I hope we will have full cooperation with the Select Committee moving forward."
