Mark Meadows served as chief of staff under former President Donald Trump. It has been noted that he keeps losing his requests to wriggle out of court in the Georgia criminal case that named him and his former boss as co-defendants via Media Ite.
On MSNBC, host Nicolle Wallace revisited some of the testimony collected by the Jan. 6 Committee that proved why he can’t separate himself from the criminal charges he faced. And Wallace had a cheeky way of describing it.
During a recent discussion with Timothy Heaphy, who is one of the lead investigators for the Jan 6 Committee, Wallace brought up several important points. One of these was the testimony given by Cassidy Hutchinson, who used to work as an aide to Meadows. Wallace also mentioned statements made by Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA).
Throughout the conversation, Wallace underscored the fact that there is a significant amount of evidence that shows Meadows was not just peripherally involved in the events of January 6th, as he had previously suggested while working for the federal government.
He was practically leading the charge in the fake elector scheme. (Allegedly.) Wallace was almost incredulous when she realized how “exposed” Meadows was:
“I want to deal with this intent and this knowledge of illegality first. So, [Pat] Cippolone and [Greg Jacob], based on their testimony to the committee, are the ones saying in all of these meetings to anyone that’s listening that the plot is illegal, the fake electors plots are illegal. Meadows isn’t just in the meeting, according to Cassidy Hutchinson, he’s convening it! It’s in his office. He’s convening Rudy and all of the people orchestrating the fake electors plots.
I mean, I think that before I went back and watched some of the Meadows-specific evidence developed by the committee, because all of our talks about Meadows sort of swirl around the opaque nature of his status in the federal probes. I forgot how exposed he is, but he is, you know, naked with his rear end hanging out on the fake electors plot. He’s essentially its quarterback.”
