Rep. Liz Cheney and Rep. Bennie Thompson are two of the shammiest members of the House Select(ed by lack of popularity) Committee “investigating” January 6th. And they aren’t satisfied with their Bannon ploy, so now they’re after former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows, perhaps in hopes of a chance to “size” his passport.
They issued a joint statement on Friday announcing their ill intent.
“Mr. Meadows’s actions today — choosing to defy the law — will force the Select Committee to consider pursuing contempt or other proceedings to enforce the subpoena. If his defiance persists and that process moves ahead, the record will reveal the wide range of matters the Select Committee wished to discuss with Mr. Meadows until his decision to hide behind the former President’s spurious claims of privilege,” the absurd statement reads.
“It’s unfortunate that Mr. Meadows has chosen to join a very small group of witnesses who believe they are above the law and are defying a Select Committee subpoena outright,” Cheney and her pal said.
The Marxists in D.C. see January 6, and the media’s lies and faux outrage over it, as their chance to lock up anyone associated with Donald Trump. They couldn’t kick him out of the White House, and they know he’s headed back there, so they are lashing out. That’s what Purges do.
The big picture: The panel targeted Meadows because it believes he spent much of Jan. 6 with the former president and because his role as former White House chief of staff means he likely has knowledge of Trump’s role in efforts to stop the certification of Biden’s election win.
The House of Representatives would need to vote to refer Meadows to the Department of Justice for criminal contempt.
This is how it will be until Dems lose the majority. The Purge, 24/7/365.
