I'm confused.

The cited article is dated November 30, 2021.

Then there is this from today...

Former WH chief of staff Mark Meadows will cease cooperation with Jan. 6 committee

...The former Trump administration official had previously been working with the committee

Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows will no longer be cooperating with a committee investigating the events of Jan. 6, despite previous efforts to work with them.

Meadows and his attorney George Terwilliger notified the committee Tuesday morning, after the senior Trump administration official could not come to terms with lawmakers on an arrangement to work with them.

"We have made efforts over many weeks to reach an accommodation with the committee," Terwilliger told Fox News....

Hmmm. Witness tampering? Obstruction of justice on the part of a fat, orange insurrectionist?

I hope the 1/6 committee receives a favorable ruling with respect to the executive privilege question and the DOJ prosecutes those witnesses who do not answer the bell. They have until election day 2022 to complete their work and refer folks for prosecution...

When will these idiots figure out that their loyalty will not be reciprocated?

Not necessarily. If the House loses its majority in 2022, the investigation can be turned over to a Special Prosecutor in Biden's DOJ.

How come meadows wants to hide how innocent he and trump were?

So let's see, first he wasn't cooperating . . . then he was . . . then he wasn't . . . and now he is again. If this keeps up, next week he'll be back to square one.

Meadows seems to think he is the one setting the terms of his cooperation. This may have something to do with stalling the Contempt of Court charges such as the one Mr. Bannon just went through . . . and lost.

Not to mention the futility of his Executive Privilege claim after the 3-panel hearing on Nov. 30/Dec.1.

Not to mention that the person Meadows was trying to protect has recently and bitterly turned against him for something Meadows said . . . or didn't mean what he said . . . or denied what he said was what he meant to say . . . in his book.

I think we need a scorecard on this one.

Did I just say "next week." I take that back. Mark Meadows has just changed his mind.

This time he's decided not to cooperate this time based on learning that the House Committee is gathering information from another source other than him.

But the House Committee isn't buying any of this. Gathering addition evidence is a normal investigative procedure.

They've requested warrant for his arrest for Contempt of Court.
