It was only a matter of time before the House Select Committee found its star witness, and when it did, it found a good one. Cassidy Hutchinson, who was an aide to Mark Meadows, gave striking testimony before the committee, leading them to file a large brief in support of their motion for summary judgment in the action filed by Meadows, reiterating that the committee “has a valid legislative purpose” in seeking testimony and documents. You might think these people are three-year-olds who cannot understand things above their ages, but these are grown-assed men who well knew what they were doing, and the committee-and the American people-deserve to know the depths to which these evil men went in trying to prevent President Biden from assuming the office to which he was duly elected.
Mark Meadows was intimately involved in the planning to overturn the 2020 election, but he wasn’t in it alone. According to New York Times, Jim Jordan, Scott Perry, Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Debbie Lesko, Mo Brooks, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jody Hice, Louis Gohmert, and Lauren Boebert were all involved in attempts to pressure Mike Pence to break the law. Yet, Marjorie Taylor Greene sat on the stand in Georgia Friday-under oath-lying her ass off about not being involved. Hopefully, Judge Totenberg read the New York Times this morning. Yet another witness testified that Meadows, Giuliani, Jim Jordan, and other Freedom Caucus members held a planning call in which they discussed “encouraging” supporters to “march to the Capitol,” and Hutchinson followed by testifying that Scott Perry “endorsed” the idea. Hutchinson also testified that Meadows was involved in Trump’s call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. The depths of deceit engaged in by these people is mind blowing. It has never been clearer that these people are in office for the power not the people, and if their constituents fail to vote them out, there is something fundamentally wrong with them. Meadows, however, is likely the worst of the bunch.
New York Times reported that Meadows was told ahead of time that the “alternate electors” idea was not “legally sound” and predicted that the January 6 rally could turn violent-and it did. Despite those warnings, Meadows pushed forward and put things in place that caused our Capitol to be vandalized and our representatives to scramble into hiding for fear of their lives. This all sounds like a bad movie, but it is, unfortunately, all too real.
Not only should Meadows’ claims of privilege be denied by the court, but Meadows should be prosecuted. According to Business Insider, Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor, said that Meadows and Trump “wanted the capitol to be taken.” Kirschner blamed Trump for the lack of federal law enforcement at the Capitol that day, and his sole reasoning was that he wanted the Capitol to be taken over by thugs. All these actions and activities, according to Kirschner, “certainly incriminate” Donald Trump. It incriminates all of them, and all must be made to pay.
