Nancy Pelosi continues to try and peddle the idea that the event at the Capitol on January 6 was internally orchestrated and Donald Trump and his team must be taken down.
However, the further many dig into the situation, the more Americans are realizing this whole thing is a farce.
And now, after choosing not to cooperate with the January 6 Committee sham, Mark Meadows has decided to turn the tables on Pelosi.
Former Chief of Staff for President Donald Trump, Mark Meadows, made the decision not to cooperate with Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 Investigatory Committee, which means he will likely face contempt charges.
Last Wednesday, Meadows did not appear for a scheduled deposition before the House select committee that is investigating the January 6 Capitol riot.
Congressman Bennie Thompson, a member of the committee, said in a letter to Meadows’ lawyer that the failure to appear would mean the committee is “left with no choice but to advance contempt proceedings and recommend that the body in which Mr. Meadows once served refer him for criminal prosecution.”
Meadows, along with being Trump’s former Chief of Staff, was previously a Congressman from North Carolina.
Meadows’ attorney, George Terwilliger, told Thompson in a letter that Meadows assumed a responsibility to protect executive privilege before and after his tenure, and “his appreciation for our constitutional system and for the separation of powers dictates that he cannot voluntarily appear under these circumstances.”
It didn’t take long for Meadows to retaliate even further against the joke of a committee.
Politico first reported that court records from the U.S. District Court in D.C., show Meadows will file a civil complaint against the legislators.
In addition to Pelosi, the civil lawsuit specifically lists the individual members of the Jan. 6 panel: Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), Susan Lofgren (D-Calif.), Elaine Luria (D-Va.), Peter Aguilar (D- Calif.), Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.).
They are all being sued in their official capacity.
CNBC reported that the case seeks to have the court invalidate two subpoenas issued by the panel to both Meadows and his personal cell phone carrier, Verizon.
Nancy Pelosi and the joke of a committee are seeking to do nothing more than take down Donald Trump, his allies, and his supporters.
This entire investigation has been nothing but a witch hunt from day one and someone must put a stop to it immediately.
