The January 6 Committee have their eyes honed in on Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows. After all, he was with the ex-president prior to the attempted coup, during it, and after. He certainly did not stop Trump from letting the mob violence continue. The Committee tweeted that Meadows does not “intend to cooperate.” This even though his newly-released book. Summary of the Chief’s Chief describes details about the January 6th attack. He is currently “promoting” his book, so why would he not tell the Committee what was going on?
Cheney, Pelosi, and others have been shining a light on these top Trump allies to keep us in the know about what is happening. Maybe, Meadows does not want to participate, because his book is fiction? It should be interesting to see if he will bed chargedwith contempt of Congress:
‘Mark Meadows has informed the Select Committee that he does not intend to cooperate further despite his apparent willingness to provide details about the January 6th attack, including conversations with President Trump, in the book he is now promoting and selling.’
The Select Committee has a lot of questions for him and many have to do with documents he did turn over, and he did not claim privilege for them. At first, Committee members it said that Meadows was going to claim executive privilege. However, President Joe Biden released him from that. So now that he is hyping his book, he really cannot expect to claim that privilege anyway, CNN reported.
‘Tomorrow’s deposition will go forward as planned. If indeed Mr. Meadows refuses to appear, the Select Committee will be left no choice but to advance contempt proceedings and recommend that the body in which Meadows once served refer him for criminal prosecution.’
Meadows, Trump’s Chief of Staff, is onboard with the Trump train. In the book, he talks about his ex-bosses “goodness and goodwill.” Yes, his book must be fiction.
One reader reviewed his book: Summary of the Chief’s Chief, according to Amazon:
‘This book reads as though a foreigner wrote it and attempted to use sophisticated language without understanding the English words. Furthermore, sentence structure was clumsy and in some sentences were incomplete. Where was the editor? If I could rate it with no stars i would do so. I have never seen such poor writing.’
As MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow says, “Watch this space.”
