Democrat January 6th Committee Uses Meadows To Get To Trump

They are cowards.

No matter how feel about Donald Trump, nobody had ever accused him of a lack of guts. That’s why the Democrat House kangaroo court on the January 6th riot is going after his underlings like Bannon and Meadows. They know that if they take on Trump directly and have him sit in front of them for testimony, he’s liable to blow them out of the water and expose the committee for what it is: a vehicle for revenge for the 2016 election.

This is where we are in American politics. Both major parties have individuals running the show whose main emphasis is an election vendetta. The Democrats must punish Trump for winning in 2016 and Trump is obsessed by those who did not support his challenge to the results of the 2020 election.

It is a product of the personalization of the process. The fight is not about ideas or really even about turf. It is about the personal obsessions of two people, Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump, whose psyches will not let them admit defeat. They will drag the country through any trauma to validate their fantasies of perfection. The latest on this saga, as of late Tuesday night, the House votes to hold Mark Meadows in contempt of Congress.

FNC: “The House of Representatives voted Tuesday in favor of a resolution to hold former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows in contempt of Congress.

Meadows, a former North Carolina congressman who also served as the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, was previously cooperating with the committee’s investigation into the events surrounding the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. He later stopped working with the investigators and is now suing them.

The vote comes a day after the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol voted 9-0 to recommend Meadows for prosecution after he refused to testify before the panel. The resolution was adopted in a 222-208 vote. Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney voted with Democrats. The seven Democrats on the panel were joined by its two Republicans Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.”

“Mr. Meadows was in contact with at least some of the private individuals who planned and organized a January 6 rally, one of whom reportedly may have expressed safety concerns to Mr. Meadows about January 6 events,” wrote Jan. 6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., in a 51-page report released late Sunday. “Mr. Meadows used his personal cell phone to discuss the rally in the days leading up to January 6.”

“Let’s be clear about this, this is not about me, holding me in contempt,” said Meadows. “It’s not even about making the Capitol safer. We’ve seen that by the selective leaks that are going on right now. This is about Donald Trump and about actually going after him once again.”
