WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives committee probing the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol said on Monday it was moving toward holding Jeffrey Clark, who was a senior Justice Department official under ex-President Donald Trump, in contempt of Congress.

The Select Committee said it would hold a business meeting on Wednesday to vote on a report recommending that the full House cite Clark for contempt of Congress and refer him for federal prosecution.
