Mark Meadows to Hand Over Records, Testify Before January 6 Committee

News just broke that Trump’s former Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, will sit before the January 6 Select Committee.

Meadows, like Bannon, was facing an indictment for ignoring the congressional subpoena to testify.

This last-minute maneuver will rob Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) of the spotlight he has been craving in going after Meadows.

Big Turn of Events

Meadows will, by far, be the highest-ranking Trump official to sit down before the committee.

I cannot imagine that Meadows made this move without Trump’s blessing.

I say that because Meadows has been advocating for Trump since his term ended and continues to encourage Trump to run again.

If there were anything damning in his files, I just would not see him rolling over this quickly.

On the Meadows news, committee chairman Bennie Thompson stated, “He has produced records to the committee and will soon appear for an initial deposition.

“The Select Committee expects all witnesses, including Mr. Meadows, to provide all information requested and that the Select Committee is lawfully entitled to receive.

“The committee will continue to assess his degree of compliance with our subpoena after the deposition.”

Meadows’ attorney George Terwilliger had shown nothing but resistance to this point, so the announcement definitely caught me by surprise, as I am sure it did others.

Earlier this month, he had stated, “Our correspondence over the last few weeks shows a sharp legal dispute with the committee.

“The issues concern whether Mr. Meadows can be compelled to testify and whether, even if he could, that he could be forced to answer questions that involve privileged communications.

“Legal disputes are appropriately resolved by courts.

“It would be irresponsible for Mr. Meadows to prematurely resolve that dispute by voluntarily waiving privileges that are at the heart of those legal issues.”

With Meadows now agreeing to testify, we are left to assume the issues they had with the committee have been resolved.

Of course, Meadows may just go before the committee and stonewall them, using this as a mere delay tactic to allow Trump’s privilege lawsuit to work its way through the system.

  1. I hope that Meadows does just that – stonewall this committee. Hopefully he will take a page from their playbook and play it the way Adam S would play it – lie until the “cows come home”!!!

  2. When are the Republicans going to grow some and hold the lying Demorats responsible for all they have done? Pelosi was behind Jan 6th and everyone knows t.

  3. Someone needs to go after Adam Schiff, Pelosi, Scheumer,Nadler, Obama, Hillary and the Bidens!!! Enough already it’s time for Checkmate!!!! End of my comment 😊

  4. Meadows should have communicated with Trump before doing this. He needs an Attorney with him to support his answers before responding to the corrupt Democratic held Congress. Every one of those Congress people need to be subpoenaed for charges of Treason.

  5. I agree pelosi is a scumbag and among one of the world’s greatest liars. That’s about all the nice things I can say about her.
    She is just following along I schiffs footsteps. Mr bug eyes is what he reminds me of every time I see him. Another of the world’s greatest liars. My opinion.

  6. Get ready after next election the Republicans will go after the Democrats the Republicans will be in control. The Demoncrats will go after them irregaurdless if there in Congress or not then Trump will finish them off. Nancy Pelosi and her husband the insider trading crooks for one. I can’t wait for it.

  7. I don’t think he is able to give them anything to help them.
    I still believe that what happened on January 6th was a setup by the Democrats. Unfortunately some Trump supporters got pulled into it.
    At some point the truth will come out.

  8. Adam Schiff would be facing jail time if he wasn’t in Congress!

    It’s no secret that any American caught lying to U.S. Congress faces the possibility of a stiff prison sentence, but the one exception to that rule is that if you’re actually a sitting member of Congress and Democrat, then lying to your colleagues is apparently just fine and sometimes even rewarded.

  9. When will the dems start doing their job and running our country and quit trying to ruin every Republican and conservative.

Jen Psaki: "My advice to everyone out there who's frustrated, sad, angry, pissed off, feel those emotions, go to a kickboxing class, have a margarita..."

UNREAL. How is this the "advice" that is now coming from the White House?

Biden claimed “America is back” when he took office.

Instead, he handed the Taliban a safe haven in Afghanistan and gave Putin the “green light” to invade Ukraine.
