In a late Tuesday night vote, the House of Representatives voted to hold President Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows in contempt of Congress. The vote comes after the House Select Committee unanimously voted to recommend the charges be brought against Meadows.
The Hill reports:
The House’s action refers Meadows to the Justice Department on criminal contempt charges for refusing to testify before the select committee probing the Jan. 6 attack. Meadows had provided thousands of pages of documents to investigators, then refused the panel’s request, under subpoena, to talk about them. It was that recalcitrance that prompted the contempt vote.
“It’s a two-part test in order to show compliance with our work: one is the production of documents; the second is sitting for a deposition or interview,” said Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.), a member of the Jan. 6 panel. “Mr. Meadows fulfilled one, but he did not fulfill the other.”
Aguilar said the committee has been in ongoing discussions with Meadows’s attorney, and the panel is willing to hear his story if he has another change of heart and agrees to cooperate. But Democrats aren’t holding their breath for that reversal, noting that Meadows’s initial cooperation had angered Trump, who remains a kingmaker in the GOP.
“It’s certainly our hope that Mark Meadows will cooperate,” said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), chairman of the Democratic Caucus. “But when the cult leader speaks, the cult members usually fall in line.”
So far, neither Meadows nor Trump has commented on the Tuesday vote.
Like Jefferies say when the cult leader speaks the cult take action. That is what the cult of Pelosi and crew are doing so the cult is in action and should be stripped of all powers until the next election.
Nancy Pelosi is a worthless godless heathen corrupt evil walking POS. I would care less if I picked up the paper and read Pelosi was term limited by a good heart attack or stroke, a terminal case of corona virus, or got run over by an illegal alien drunk driver.
Pelosi won reelection in 2020.
Trump did not.
The cult leader is Trump.
Cult leaders can do no wrong
Just like Christ.

The RINO’s that voted with the Democrats against Meadows – you are done – toast start looking for a new job – you suck at the one you have
More and RINOs everyday day.
When will they be the majority of the GOP?
Both Pete Aguilar and Hakeem Jeffries are complete assholes. They are from the states of California and New York (why doesn’t that surprise anyone?). These morons are clowns.
Georgie Boy Soros tells them what to do and like good little lap dogs, they do it.
We need President Trump now more than ever. He was the best President in my lifetime AND I’M OLD!
AMEN!!!!!! TRUMP 2024!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jeffries, right for once, but he has th wrong cult, IMO
Major KANGAROO court VERMIN all need to be FUMIGATED, PERIOD!
Trump Inc. is in the process of being fumigated.
More RINOs and inditments everyday.
Nancy Pelosi will do anything to destroy Trump even though she has had no luck in doing that with her 2 ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL Impeachments, Nancy is now trying to hold President Trump responsible for something that she herself is responsible for. She knows full well that Donald J, Trump is the legal and legitimate President and as such she can NOT subpoena his records that are protected by Executive Privilege. Trump won the election with 410 Electoral votes while Biden got 128. The vote was then stopped so the Biden team could see how many votes they would need to produce for Joe Biden to win. Now Pelosi is trying to Fraudulently destroy out Legitimately elected President with an insurrection that NO ONE (has been charged with insurrection) for the sole purpose of destroying Trump. Nancy as Speaker of the House is responsible for the safety and security of the Capitol Building. she turned down Trumps offer of 10,000 National Guardsman for Security. The purpose of this was to have the PRE-PLANNED vote to illegally certify Joe Biden and not allow any dissent from the Republican side. Nancy Pelosi and her Un Select Committee all need to be brough up on charges of TREASON and held for a MILITARY TRIBUNAL.
And the walls come tumbling down.
They will eventually break down the house of cards, watch hess as the corrupt dems will fall and held accountable. Then a holes such as yourself will run and hide. Get a life hess.
I commend Mark Meadows for his refusal to comply to this panel. It represents yet another leftist dog an pony show attempt to validate another political witch hunt. POUND SAND!

CHEAP TRUMP SMEARS WILL CONTINUE.
