“The president’s plan to hold mass rallies in Florida and elsewhere as we experience a resurgence in COVID cases is irresponsible and selfish,” said U.S. Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla. in a tweet on Monday.

Demings was not the only democrat to call out Trump rallies, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont also tweeted:
“Trump wants 15,000 delegates cheering him at his GOP convention in Florida. No social distancing. His rejection of medical advice endangers not only those there but those they come in contact with. Trump’s a threat to the health and well-being of the country. He must be defeated.”

Jan. 6 Select Committee Announces Plan to ‘Advance Contempt Proceedings’ Against Mark Meadows
The January 6th Capital riot saga continues as a Democratic-led Select Committee has confirmed its plans to hold former President Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows in criminal contempt. On Tuesday CNN obtained a letter that Mark Meadow’s attorney sent to the January 6 Committee formally announcing he would refuse to continue to cooperate with the probe.
“We agreed to provide thousands of pages of responsive documents and Mr. Meadows was willing to appear voluntarily, not under compulsion of the Select Committee’s subpoena to him, for a deposition to answer questions about non-privileged matters,” attorney George J. Terwilliger III stated in the letter.
“Now actions by the Select Committee have made such an appearance untenable…In short, we now have every indication from the information supplied to us last Friday — upon which Mr. Meadows could expect to be questioned — that the Select Committee has no intention of respecting boundaries concerning Executive Privilege,” Terwilliger added.
Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) wrote a letter dated December 7 announcing its retaliatory actions: “The Select Committee is left with no choice but to advance contempt proceedings and recommend that the body in which Mr. Meadows once served refer him for criminal prosecution.”
CNN reports on the timeline of correspondence between the Select Committee and Mr. Meadows:
Meadows was first subpoenaed by the committee on September 23. On November 12, Meadows failed to appear for a deposition, but on November 22, the committee gave Meadows another opportunity to begin cooperating with the committee by turning over documents and scheduling a new deposition, to which Meadows agreed. But, the day before the scheduled deposition, Meadows, via his lawyer, informed the committee he would not be appearing for the scheduled December 8 deposition and would cease cooperating with the committee.
Prior to Tuesday’s decision to cease cooperating with the committee, Meadows “had turned over approximately 6,000 pages worth of documents to the panel” reports CNN.
