1/6 committee member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said the committee would act quickly to refer Mark Meadows to prosecution.
Rep. Schiff said at Meet The Press:
Well, you know, we acted very quickly to make these decisions and I am confident that we will act very quickly on Mr. Meadows too, but we want to make sure we can bring the strongest case to the Department of Justice and for the Justice Department for presentation to a grand jury. And that means we bend back to make any arrangement with witnesses willing to get involved.
But when finally witnesses, like Meadows, decide they won’t even show up, that they despise the law so much, that pretty much forces us and we will act quickly.
Witnesses who do not cooperate will be criminally referred
The message from Rep. Schiff is loud and clear. People summoned by the committee try better to cooperate, or they will be the fastest way to be prosecuted.
Steve Bannon tried not to cooperate. Mark Meadows tried not to cooperate. The bottom line is that Bannon has been charged and Meadows appears to be prosecuted.
Don’t mess with the 1/6 committee because those who do could easily end up behind bars.
