Former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that there is a way to sue Mark Meadows, President Donald Trump’s former chief of staff.
Discussing a Washington Post article titled “Inside Mark Meadows’ latest push to keep Trump in power,” anchor Nicolle Wallace asked, “We know he knew there was no evidence of electoral fraud. We know this because Bill Barr told him. What type of behavior do you think Meadows really has that could come under scrutiny, Claire? »
McCaskill said: “This article lays out very clearly the path for his involvement in the fraud and the attempt to oppose and stop a legal and constitutional activity of the Vice President of the United States and who ratifies the votes electoral.”
Discussing former Attorney General Bill Barr, McCaskill continued, “He sits in the Oval Office and says in front of Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and the President that whatever you’re told is bullshit. Sorry, that’s what he said. I was quoted in the article. I don’t swear on TV.
She continued, “So Bill Barr says this, in front of the President and Meadows. What’s Meadows doing with that from the Attorney General? Their attorney general, by any reasonable description, decides to go ahead and try to steal an election for this president. So I think that’s really something, and this committee has done a masterful job of connecting a lot of the dots here. What did they do in the process that they made a circle of these dots, mostly helpers, and guess who’s trapped in the middle of that circle? Donald Trump, Michael Pence and Mark Meadows.
