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.

    Democrats conduct one corrupt, Soviet witch hunt after another. It’s sad that nobody seems able to put them in check. The answer is to fight them with all you have, because meekness will now encourage mercy. They want to hurt Conservatives or anyone who loves America, Democracy, and Liberty. Bannon has the right idea. I hope he takes them to the wood shed. Too bad there aren’t enough legitimate Republicans to band together and fight the Democrat kangaroo courts.

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity from the picket line after President Joe Biden’s “brief” few minutes of support with the United Auto Workers strike in Michigan. Biden spent a “whopping 12 minutes with those UAW workers outside the plant today” said Carter.

“And I can tell you the time I spent with hundreds of workers walking up and down that line it was stunning to see how they had turned on the administration none of them actually bought the visit they thought it was more political than it was supportive” she added about her discussions with workers on the ground.

“It’s all about votes, trying to get votes” said one worker. “It’s a show” said another. Individuals also lamented “they didn’t forget about us During the pandemic. We were building cars and trucks, we were working” only to be left behind now.

Carter said it was evident that immediately after the brief show of “support” Biden immediately left, and got straight on his plane to head to Silicon Valley for a fundraiser.
