Mark Meadows was quite loyal to Donald Trump when he served as his Chief of Staff. And he says he’s still fiercely loyal to his former boss. But Meadows recently wrote a book with plenty of damaging info about Trump. During this morning’s episode of Morning Joe, Claire McCaskill explains why things keep getting worse for the former North Carolina congressman.
“Mark Meadows had a really bad day yesterday,” she began. “When you read that opinion, if a unanimous court of appeals from the D.C. Circuit says what it said about executive privilege then Mark Meadows is on very, very shaky ground where he tries to now retreat and say, ‘Hey, I don’t have to cooperate because of executive privilege.’ You know, you can waive the privilege, given all these documents. There is going to be a vote to hold him in contempt at the beginning of the week.”
The former Missouri senator continued:
“You know, he’s had a bad week because clearly the president didn’t like it that he told everyone he had been very, very sick and, frankly, kept it from people that threatens people’s lives. Now he’s not in a strong position trying to hide from this committee after they’ve gotten all this important information from him. I think the biggest argument against him is he waived the privilege by providing the documents he already has.”
