Former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows testified before a federal grand jury as part of special counsel Jack Smith's investigation into Donald Trump.

Meadows received a judicial order to testify in the case after a judge rejected the Trump team's claims of executive privilege. It remains unclear what Meadows may have discussed during that testimony.

The New York Times first reported on his testimony, citing "two people briefed on the matter."

Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Smith to handle the Department of Justice's Trump-related investigations in November 2022 after Trump declared his 2024 candidacy. Earlier that year, the FBI raided Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate seeking documents the former president may have removed from the White House. 

The investigation has faced allegations of political bias, including from Trump himself, who has termed it a "witch hunt."

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan on Tuesday wrote to Garland seeking documents outlining the scope of Smith's investigation and materials related to his appointment.
