Justice Department Declines to Pursue Charges Against Meadows, Scavino

In a significant blow to the January 6th House committee, the Justice Department declined to follow up on its recommendation to charge former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows and deputy chief of staff Dan Scovino.

The committee found both in contempt of Congress after they refused to oblige by the panels subpoenas relating to the events at the Capitol on January 6th. It referred the cases to the US attorney in DC hoping to punish the pair for their refusal.

According to NBC News, a DoJ official said the committee has been notified of its decisions, which were based “on the individual facts and circumstances of their alleged contempt.”

The decision to not prosecute Meadows, in particular, is a big blow to the committee.

He was “uniquely situated to provide critical information about the events of January 6” according to the committee’s original subpoena. It was also interested in compelling his cooperation due to him being “with or in the vicinity of Trump” when word of the chaos reached the White House.

“The result speaks for itself,” said George Terwilliger, an attorney for Meadows.

The committee voiced its disappoint in a statement.

“We find the decision to reward Mark Meadows and Dan Scavino for their continued attack on the rule of law puzzling,” it said shortly after the news broke. “We hope the Department provides greater clarity on this matter.”

The DOJ is politicized and “declined to pursue charges against Meadows, Scavino” because they know that would be another nail in the democrat coffin come November.

May the traitorous, insurrectionist Demo-twits reap the shame, ignominy and censure they richly deserve.

Finally, the Justice Department let the WORLD know that the democrats are attacking innocent people for political gain. The real question is: Did the actions of the Committee violate the Constitutional Right of those arrested. If so then each member MUST be arrested and thrown from office. Their Oath REQUIRES it.

Watch the trailer for “2,000 Mules!” Anyone who says the election wasn’t stolen can see just from the trailer of the movie that there is undeniable evidence now: when you see 2,000 different people going to sometimes 25 ballot boxes each in one night, stuffing each one of them w/ handfuls of ballots at 2 am, 3am, etc., & taking photos of themselves stuffing the ballot boxes so they have proof & can get paid for doing it (& many admitting on camera that’s what they were paid to do) & even driving across state lines to stuff different ballot boxes ALL CAUGHT ON CAMERAS & the recordings have been verified as undoctored…these are only the 2,000 that were being watched. How many thousands of other paid criminals did the same thing, without being caught by these particular investigators? The other perfect examples of fraud shown will freak you out!!!
