On Monday night, the House 1/6 Committee held a vote about holding Mark Meadows in contempt of court. The most stunning moment of the hearing occurred when Liz Cheney read off a number of text messages received by Trump’s former Chief of Staff that day.
A number of these texts were sent by Fox News personalities, among them; Laura Ingraham, Brian Kilmeade and Sean Hannity. All of these messages showed serious concern from the Fox employees. According to CNN’s Jamie Gangel, these messages made liars out of the Fox hosts.
The pundit began by saying that this is just the beginning of Meadows’ problems. “What we heard tonight I believe is just a small number of the text messages,” Gangel said. “I was told by a source familiar that there are hundreds of text messages… I think there are more to come. This was just the beginning.”
Gangel then continued, “This is a day of reckoning for Donald Trump. Because, we don’t like to use the word lying as reporters but look at these Fox News hosts. They have been lying. They were lying on January 6th. They go on social media. They go on the air and pretend that January 6th wasn’t a big deal.”
