“It’s not about holding me in contempt,” Meadows told host Rob Schmitt. “It’s about coming after President Donald Trump, and sadly, that’s what tonight’s vote was all about.”
Meadows added he has tried to comply with the committee’s subpoena, but he would not do so by violating Trump’s right to executive privilege. The assertion of privilege by the former president and his aides remains a point of contention.
“We tried to help and accommodate,” Meadows continued. “The attorneys I had working with me worked on nonprivileged information. We said all along we were going to protect the president’s executive privilege. We continue to do so. We will continue to do that.
“We think that it’s a decision that the courts need to weigh in on. Obviously, Congress thinks that I should waive the executive privilege. It’s not mine to waive, and so we’re going to honor President Trump’s executive privilege claim until the courts tell us differently.”
Among the texts spilled to Congress and the American people are private texts sent from Donald Trump Jr. to Meadows urging him to get then-President Trump is deliver an Oval Office address to Americans amid the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol.” newsmax
Comment: IMO the Democrat/Marxist forces are deeply afraid of a return of Trump. They are right to be afraid. He would be less forgiving this time. Seeking to avoid that they are trying to walk a chain of criminal referrals up the ladder of former Trump people until they can make such a referral to DOJ hoping for prosecution of Trump himself. Trump people will remember this persecution of a former president. pl
He got more minority votes than any GOP candidate in 60 years or something. Damn right they are afraid. Next time he would get even more. He took too many of their patrons. They could work on renovations to their clubhouse and course but that’s requires real planning and work. Easier to sabotage the owner and staff of the new clubhouse ruining their business.
What’s wrong with showing a little transparancy on what led to the Jan. 6th attempt to prevent certifying Biden’s victory as the 46th president of the United States? Let’s see who was involved and who wasn’t. I’m not a big fan of Liz Cheney but I have to admire her for standing up for the rule of law and our democracy’s “norms”.
Have been reading two-thirds of Republicans believe that President Joe Biden did not legitimately win the 2020 election, even as more than six-in-ten Americans overall believe he won fair and square, according to a new Monmouth University poll. The kool-aid must be awfully strong.
Yes, they should fear the return of the Orange Devil. However, this attempt to slay their nemesis once and for all could lead to an even more dangerous outcome. An indicted & cornered Trump would have nothing to lose. In such circumstances many of his supporters may feel likewise.
They are after anyone who voted for him too. Inflation on top of business destroying lockdowns are significantly damaging the middle-class. I’m sure that they will turn out in droves for Hilary 2024.
Why hasn’t Chairman Thompson, who thinks taking the 5th is an admission of guilt, subpoenaed Ray Epps text messages?
Yes. It is a purge and ultimately an assault on Big Orange himself. They’re really making it clear that anyone who works with/for Trump will be brought down in every way possible. They want to make him radioactive.
I would recommend that Trump continue to make a lot of noise about running again. Let the Marxists focus their resources on him. Then, at the last possible moment, Trump should pass the torch to someone like DeSantis. When elected, DeSantis must quickly and ruthlessly remove all of Trump’s enemies before they pivot and come after him. Those enemies are revealing themselves.
And yes, Trumpistas understand and hate what is happening. Revenge is a dish best served cold.
IMO, this is because Trump showed weakness and a lack of courage when he had the chance to cut the head of the snake during the Russia Collusion hoax coup attempt. They’re demonstrating once again his weakness. He has thrown all the J6 folks who’ve been held in detention many with no charges under the bus, just like he threw Flynn. If he was gonna fight he would use his bully pulpit to defend all these J6 folks languishing in jail. But he’s not done that.
Why would a second term be any different? He’ll once again staff his administration with the similar folks from the Deep State and the establishment duopoly. And bring back Jared who’s busy raising a big investment fund from the Gulf Arabs just like Tony Blair did??
Stand by for the J6 “Wellstone Funeral” next month. If it has any legs at all–which I doubt–it will disappear in two week’s time when the Christmas credit card bills show up.
Democrats obsession with the politics of personal destruction is scaring the crap out of people. Let it rip. 2022 will speak for itself.
Biden’s weaponization of IRS to go after the middle class is polling very badly. Democrats are the party of the mean, shallow, vindictive, and nasty money and time wasters.
The Supreme Court declines to block the New York vaccine mandates for health care workers, reinforcing the mandate which does not allow even religous exemption.
With this thosuands of NY health workers who refuse to be jabbed lose job and elegibility for unemployment benefits, advocating them to emigrate to another more democratic state, or face misery.
Surprising, or not, that the judges who dissented were Alito, Gorsuch and Thomas, while Trump side appointed judges Robetrts, Barrett ans Kavanaugh who sided with the liberals…
It seems that, the same as happens in Europe, this is a biapartisan issue….to imposse on us the globalist agenda..
How this should be read with regard the coming mid term elections and the possible candidacy of Trump?
27 US air force pilots who refuse to be jabbed were also dismissed from service…
It seems that you have the obligation of giving up your life in peace time because that is the desire of this US administration and the whole corrupt institutions,.
During an homage to a Spanish soldier whose death was proved to have been caused by the vaccine, Spanish Defense Minister, stated that eventhough the soldier had died becuase of the vaccine, the benefits of the vaccine are greater than the risks, saying this way his wiodw, waiting for a child, in her very face the death of his young husband was worth the debatable vaccines benefit…
This is an outrage, all the more when I read that Jacinda ” I will not consider my job finished while there is one new zealand unvaccinated citizen” Arden, has been caught with an unexplainable surplus of 24 million dollars in her and her husband accounts, with regard the past year, the same case as European Comission Stella Kyriakides, who was who signed the vaccines contracts in the EU….
Yeah, pilots, info from the Wapo…saw at Telegram
So, ground staff, officer and enlisted, all took their shots?
A lot of Air Force personnel still have exemption requests pending. The small number already separated are the ones who did not file for exemption.
From Fortune.com – Women Leaders under 40
……”This year, that face is a decidedly female one. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is our new No.1—the first time a woman has ever held the top slot solo. (Winners are sometimes part of a group.) For anyone who needs a refresher, what Ardern has accomplished in the past year-plus is astounding: she has all but eliminated COVID-19 in her country of nearly 5 million, with fewer than 3,000 cases and only 26 deaths. She’s adopted world-leading climate, gender-equity, and equal pay policies. Then, in March, New Zealand became the first country to require banks, investment managers and insurers to disclose the effects of climate change on their businesses. If only all world leaders could set the bar so high.
Ardern is certainly a singular leader, but she’s in great company on our list, which also includes NBA Players Association executive director Michele Roberts (one of the saviors of the league’s 2020 season), Ping An Group co-CEO Jessica Tan (a leader in China’s COVID response), Fair Fight’s Stacey Abrams (voting rights champion), Dolly Parton (American icon-turned vaccine funder), and many, many more inspiring women………….”
NB: Fortune’s idea of great girl company is Stacey Abrams??? This early 2021 article did not age well.
You can’t fix STOOPID. I didn’t realize Fortune was still published. It always was a fairly useless rag.
Link to info on the astounding increase of 3150% of Jacinda Ardern´s worth net in just a year….
We must take advantage of the remaining closing window of opportunity to catch these looters, even if it has to be as they did with Capone…
That’s $16 million is USD. It’s also not backed up by anything but inuendo.
Well, I understood she went from 1 million worth net to 25 million just in a year…
I do not pretend this news to be brought to a trial as proof, of course, we need more evidence based info, bu that they are bribed is a fact. I would put my hand into the fire.
Attention to the case of Germany, where “b” from MoA trust that, eventhough Annalena Baerbock is a crazy Soros groupie with zero experii¡ence in what war and foreign policy means, least diplomacy, the German Constitution will be made to prevail by the new chancellor…
I would not hold my breath…
“The network of “legal” corruption of the European political parties and their financiers, the big technology corporations and, especially, the pharmaceutical companies, explain the reason for the health dictatorship. The coalition in Germany: SPD, FDP liberals, and before the right CDU ”
Scholz has just declared that “there are no red lines” for him to comabt the “pandemic”, thus we understand not even the German Constitution….
Someone should communicate it to “b” there…
If that is not widespread Western corruption, tell me what it is…
It is obvious who is in charge over here and there where you live too.
In the 1918 parliamentary election, “Vote for the man in jail” was a winning slogan in Irish constituencies. The great majority of Irish elected were Sinn Feiners.
The only way Trump’s candidacy can be stopped is by a successful impeachment, the validity of which for someone who has left office is most doubtful. Even if he is tried, convicted, and jailed on some other charge, Trump can still run and be voted for. The more manifestly he is being persecuted, the likelier he is to win.
If inflation continues apace or even at a slightly slower rate, some leftist diehards will probably secretly vote for Trump in 2024. It’s bad enough now, but price increases haven’t even fully kicked in yet. Buckle up.
Let them take out Trump. Love the man but he has gone as far as he can. And motivates the other side to no end to turn out and vote. Not that they got 81 million votes but they did turn out to cheat by collecting mail-in ballots to ensure the victory. And his ability to pick people loyal to him and his followers is abysmal.
This is a case of Brer Rabbit. Let the dumbasses on the “committee” even indict Trump and find him guilty of a felony in a Kangaroo Court. Just like Brer Rabbit said to Brer Fox.
““Skin me, Brer Fox, snatch out my eyeballs, tear out my ears by the roots, and cut off my legs,” said Brer Rabbit. “Only please, Brer Fox, please don’t throw me into the briar patch.”
“Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit and the briar patch”
That leaves the door wide open for Governor DeSantis who has what it takes to defeat the bastards on the left.
They will do the same and WORSE to Desantis. It does not matter. Trump absolutely must run again if he can. He is not dividing the country gaining more minority votes than anyone in the GOP for 60 years. Anyone who says that is ignorant of the voting data and brain washed by the media. It’s nonsense.
“Trump absolutely must run again” Completely agree.
I think Trump is too offensive to suburban whites to be elected. That demographic would vote R at this point because inflation is beginning to clobber them. IMO, Trump should pass the torch.
A seasoned and chastened Trump would be formidable. And it takes a bull in the china shop to break past the deep state.
The deep state and friends prevented Trump from putting together a remotely effective cabinet and administration – they made any association with him poison. I think this time, he will be able to put in a far more effective team.
“Weak” is not a word I would use to this first Outsider POTUS. Unrelenting and successful sums up his first term far better.
“Weak” would apply only if Team Deep State in fact had destroyed Trump after he left office, which they are still desperately trying to do. Hasn’t happened, so “weak” is not a label to put on the overall Trump movement, including its nominal leader.
Trump rolls up his sleeves and keeps hitting back. Biden undoing his successful initiatives only proved he was not weak at all in what he was able to get done. Inexhaustible energy to keep up the fight is what I see.
OT – connecting more “covid” dots. What one does, now that California is yet again in draconian masking-vaccination incarceration.
— 2011 Matt Damon movie Contagion backed by wealthy pandemic monger who funded Al Gore’s panic monger movie Inconvenient Truth
— pandemic threats later picked up by Bill Gates and spread in a TedTalk who also funds Yahoo News somehow
— Yahoo News then thrusts upon us via the global internet transmission the Great Toilet Paper Hoax flooding the US from Australia -even before “covid” arrived on our shores.
The seeds of blind obedience and mass hysteria had been planted, sprouted and have horrifically flourished these past two year. The ground appeared to have been cuitivated for this exact scenario – conspiracy or finally connected dots.
What role did this person featured in Forbes play in this past two year global horror show, someone has not been in the Fauci-Gates spotlight or rather gaslight?
Trying to make sense of revelations in “The Real Dr Fauci – Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health.” (RFK Jr)
So Jeff Skill started to work on propaganda about pandemics in 2009. I think that was a response to the financial crisis of 2008.
Skoll, that should be. Damn Autocorrect.
“Meadows added he has tried to comply with the committee’s subpoena, but he would not do so by violating Trump’s right to executive privilege. The assertion of privilege by the former president and his aides remains a point of contention.”
Does Meadows base his reticence on qualified immunity, as per Nixon’s aides, the outcome supported by the Supreme Court in ’82, and all cases of qualified immunity for government officials that followed?
Didn’t Biden waive Trump’s executive privilege? Or was I having a bad dream.
