“Mark Meadows, former chief of staff to President Trump, said that during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asked the Department of Defense what time Congress members could get their lunch. Meadows told the John Solomon Reports podcast on Tuesday that while he wasn’t in the room at the time of the call, Pelosi contacted Department of Defense officials later on during the riot and ‘made an inquiry about what time, you know, our members could actually get their lunch.’ ‘I find it amazing that she was more interested in their culinary position than they are in anything else,” he added. Trump ‘had asked for up to 10,000 National Guard troops to be available to Nancy Pelosi and to [Washington, D.C.] Mayor [Muriel] Bowser,’ Meadows said. ‘And, unfortunately, they did not take him up on that. But he did put them on the ready, and that’s why they were able to respond as quickly as they did.'”
“Meadows explained that Trump had made the National Guard available two days before the Capitol riot because he knew a lot of people would attend the rally on Jan. 6 and remembered Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and others had been previously accosted leaving the Republican National Convention. ‘And what he didn’t want is this whole chaos to erupt with counterprotesters and the like,’ but that was ‘largely … ignored’ leading up to and on Jan. 6 ‘by those that should be making the decision,’ Meadows recounted, referring to Pelosi” John Solomon’s website reports.
Solomon leaves out the part of Meadows’s book detailing when he and Trump suited up in their latex costumes and domino masks – as their superhero identities Captain MAGA and his trusty sidekick Obedience Boy – jumped in the MAGA mobile, sped to the Capitol, and defeated the horde of Antifa terrorists attacking Congress with their super strength and courage, which convinced Nancy Pelosi and Mike Pence to realize the evil of their ways and declare Trump the President for life, winner of every Nobel Prize for the next infinity years plus 500 Medals of Honor each, and Mark Meadows is Trump’s best friend forever and even gets a special best friend ticker-tape parade until SOROS used his evil mind control powers to erase everyone’s memory of how it REALLY happened except for Mark Meadows who remembers it 100% and it’s in his book so buy it now.
UPDATE 10/20/2021 10:09 AM EDT: In related news, Politico reports Meadows has retained GOP lawyer Sideshow George Terwilliger to represent him in the Capitol riot investigation.
