The “hyper-partisan” Jan. 6 Select Committee is not concerned with facts, the law, or executive privilege and only seeks a narrative to distract from the “failing” Biden administration, according to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Newsmax.
“We worked real hard to try to reach an accommodation with the committee, and yet it’s been basically their way or the highway,” Meadows told “Rob Schmitt Tonight” after he declined to appear on subpoena from the committee early Friday.
“Congress has gotten so hyper-partisan and, candidly, this committee is more interested in politics than they are really solving real problems,” he added.
The committee indicted former White House strategist Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress, the first time an indictment has been sought on that charge when executive privilege had been asserted by a U.S. president.
“They took a very aggressive move today and sadly, you know, I think what most Americans are seeing this is an attempt to really keep the focus on Jan. 6 and not on their failing Biden administration policy,” Meadows told host Rob Schmitt.
Meadows said he was not unwilling to share information with the committee, including information that counters the Democrats’ Jan. 6 narrative, but he said courts must first weigh in on Trump’s executive privilege.
“It would be irresponsible for Mr. Meadows to prematurely resolve that dispute by voluntarily waiving privileges that are at the heart of those legal issues,” his attorney George Terwilliger III wrote in a statement as former President Donald Trump is seeking legal protection on his executive privileged communications.
“These are complex legal matters,” Meadows added to Schmitt. “Quite frankly, you’ve got a number of difference of opinions – kind of got me in the in the middle of it – where we’ve got a president in President Trump that is saying that he wants to claim executive privilege. There’s case law that would suggest that that’s appropriate.
“You’ve got Congress that’s saying, ‘No, we’re not going to do that; we’re going to hold you in contempt if you don’t show up.’
“Hopefully the courts will weigh in.”
Democrats are using a playbook they have been following during the Trump era: Concoct a narrative and keep selling it until it becomes adopted by the media, which gobbles up selectively spun leaks, Meadows said.
“They have a they have a track record of doing that: You know what they’ll do is they’ll selectively leak,” Meadows said. “We saw that during the impeachment. We’ve seen that with the Steele dossier. They leak out little parts of it when they know they know better and, sadly, it hurts their reputation.”
Meadows noted the long overdue corrections from The Washington Post on taking the Democrats’ bait on the Russia collusion narrative the Clinton campaign spun and paid to disseminate to try to damage Trump in the public and subvert his administration.
“This was always a narrative where we had the Hillary Clinton campaign actually feeding information to someone to try to authenticate that,” Meadows concluded. “And, then ultimately, these sources that they’re now having to retract were actually made up sources.
“So they spun their whole narrative, but here’s what you’ll start to find out is that a number of people closely tied to the Clinton campaign where not only shopping this information, but they were giving the information and then trying to authenticate it.
Not only are the Democrats up on Capitol Hill attempting a misdirection play to cover for #DementiaJoe, Pelosi is covering her a@@, also.
As anyone who has halfway been paying attention knows, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in charge of the Capitol Police, who opened the doors for the rioters to enter the Capitol Building.
Now, boys and girls, I’m just spit-balling here, but there a several things that just do not add up in Pelosi and the Democrats’ version of what happened on January 6, 2021.
Information has come out that the “insurrection” was pre-planned. An allegation proven by the fact that pipe bombs were planted and found before the end of President Trump’s speech that day.
Also, the “rioters” were already “storming” the Capitol while Trump was still speaking.
And, why did Pelosi and McConnell block the request for 10,000 National Guard Troops from President Trump, himself?
Oh, and why did the Capitol Police Officers guarding the Capital Building let the rioters in?
By the way, of the two hundred fifty people, out of the tens of thousands who were at Trump’s Speech, arrested for their actions that day, they are finding nut jobs who DID NOT VOTE FOR TRUMP.
In fact, they did not even vote in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Y’know, Pelosi sure is reticent to talk about her duties as Speaker of the House as they pertain to the “insurrection”.
I hope that I do not sound like a conspiracy theorist, but…what if the entire “insurgence” on January 6th was not just preplanned but it was a political frame job by Pelosi and the Democrat Elite.
Come to think of it, my supposition is not that far-fetched when you consider the same crowd attempted to unconstitutionally impeach a private citizen simply because they were overcome with Trump Derangement Syndrome and they did not want to him to be able to run for President again in 2024 or be involved in politics in any way.
And, now those same professional politicians are going to to provide cover for themselves with a “9/11-Style Commission”, once again going after a private citizen in a vendetta which the entire nation has already recognized to be wrong and not important to the needs of our country and her people .
This is nothing but a Kangaroo Court presided on by a bunch of hypocrites trying to divert Americans’ attention from the fact that they are in the midst of radically changing our Constitutional Republic into a Marxist Nation.
No wonder Trump has invoked “Executive Privilege”
