Well, Look Who Just Got Dragged Into Trump's Criminal Nightmare

Mark Meadows just got pulled into former President Donald Trump’s legal drama in Georgia.

Meadows, Trump’s final White House chief of staff, is being summoned to testify next month in Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ criminal investigation into Trump allies’ attempts to flip the 2020 election.

Willis also wants to hear from pro-Trump “Kraken” lawyer Sidney Powell, Meadows contact Army Col. James “Phil” Waldron, and former Trump campaign adviser Boris Epshteyn, according to court filings released Thursday afternoon.

The attempt to compel testimony from some of Trump’s closest advisers is further evidence that Willis’ probe is looking in every corner of Trumpworld in a strikingly thorough investigation, legal experts said. Willis’ filing describes Meadows as a “material witness” to her investigation.

“The subpoena [for Meadows] tells us that the DA may be closing in on Trump and other big fish in this scandal,” Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond School of Law, told VICE News.

Meadows participated in the infamous phone call that Trump held with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in January 2021 in which Trump told Raffensperger he wanted to “find” enough votes to allow him to carry Georgia. President Joe Biden won Georgia by a wafer-thin margin of 11,779 votes.

I keep saying it--Fani Willis don't play!

2. It's always "wafer-thin" when Dems win:

“A clear and convincing win” if Rethugs do, or the margin of victory, if it could be described as “wafer-thin” is ignored and not spoken of.

12. There was only one "wafer thin" election that I can recall. It occurred in 2000 when Al Gore lost

Florida by 537 votes and a ballot recount was stopped by the SCOTUS (after Fla's Supreme Court ordered it to continue). So Gore didn't "lose" -- the election was nullified. Often wonder what in Gawd's name DJT would've done if THAT had happened to him.

36. And when they actually counted all the votes, Al Gore had won

By 1million votes, but W was already sworn in and about 1 year into his 1st term.

39. Both, if the USSC hadn't gotten involved, Florida would gone

To Al Gore by over a million votes. I believe it was the Miami Herald newspaper that finished the count. Bush and Gore were tied at 269 electoral votes. With 270 needed to win.

41. That article was dated April 3, 2001. It was almost a year later

They found more uncounted votes. At final count, Al Gore had won by roughly 1 million votes.

42. It was in the overvotes

Especially in black precincts, they would fill in the bubble by gore’s name and then also write in his name on the write in line

The machines didn’t record those votes but a full hand count would discover the voters intent

47. That's quite an exaggeration or a misstatement.

“Florida would gone To Al Gore by over a million votes”

There were less than 6 million votes cast in Florida in 2000. No recount was ever going to find that Gore won by over a million in Florida.

that TT beat Hillary with, yet his "win" was a blow-out and Biden's was barely there.

Fani Willis has a background in RICO cases. I think that is important to keep in mind. I know that those attempting to resist testifying are aware of it.

listening to Arlo Guthrie's introduction to "The Pause of Mr. Claus" was a giggle. He talked about "the last guy." In my humble opinion, DA Willis is the last human being that Trump & Co want investigating their effort to overturn the election.

34. And the DOJ ALSO has background in RICO cases.

And my guess is that they're writing drafts right now to include most of the Trump White House staff as co-conspirators in the looting of the US government of national security documents.

Oh, yeah. Some of the staffers OBJECTED to Trump's thefts. But they said NOTHING to the DOJ about it. Thus, they were complacent enablers/co-conspirators. They are REQUIRED to report crimes to the DOJ. They took an oath to do so. Yet they sat by while Trump stole documents. They watched him do it, and some even helped him with the thefts.

For the Nazi party, the former republican party, to take over the House so they can bombard the department of justice with God knows what and somehow interfere with Georgia, maybe someone here who knows the law can explain it but that’s what they’re waiting for.

They likely won't get a House majority. Not now. They're trying to buck the Roe-Dobbs decision, the J6C's business, and the coming indictments-- all of it spells defeat for the GOP.

all-things election tampering and failed coup...I'm thinking he and the DOJ have had multiple sit-downs re: coup co-conspirator (sedition, insurrection)...but Meadow's foray into election tampering, that's a different kind of felony..

My prediction: it just a matter of time before the DOJ ties Meadows to the Trump's document grab...he was, after all, Trump's chief of staff and more than likely "helped" with the packing up
