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.

Biden Admin uses Tom Hanks for ‘credibility’ in new video, just like ‘The Simpsons Movie’

Published

Joe Biden

The famous pop-culture cartoon “The Simpsons” is playing out in real life in American politics. In a 2007 episode, the Simpsons predicted “that government would become so inept they’d need to enlist the help of actor Tom Hanks to gain back credibility, and the Biden administration appears to be doing just that” writes the Daily Caller News Foundation.

President Biden has enlisted the actor, Tom Hanks, to narrate a video wholly focused on promoting his first year in office. Axios exclusively reported on the upcoming video which will be using average Americans telling stories of hope, all in the name of “commemorating” Biden’s first year.

We wonder if the Americans in the video will be hired actors, taking a page out of vice president Kamala Harris’ video talking to children about space. Harris released a bizarre video having a ‘fireside chat’ conversation with hired child actors.

The Biden-Harris Presidential Inaugural Committee reportedly said of the video, “In recognition of the President’s first year in office, the Biden-Harris Presidential Inaugural Committee believed it was important to celebrate the strength and perseverance of the American people in the face of extraordinary adversity, just as we did a year ago today.”

In the 2007 “The Simpsons Movie” actor Tom Hanks made an appearance in a government-sponsored TV ad for the Grand Canyon. The actor’s great line is: “Hello. I’m Tom Hanks. The US Government has lost its credibility, so it’s borrowing some of mine.”
