North Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Meadows dropped the hammer on the Deep State this week, revealing that “indictments are ready” and that jail time could be looming for some Obama administration officials.
While speaking with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, Meadows revealed that the long-anticipated DOJ inspector general’s report “investigating the investigators” on Russiagate will be out soon — and that it could be more explosive than many realize.
“One of the reasons for that is additional information has been given to the inspector general for them to investigate,” he said. “But I believe based on the documents I’ve seen, that crimes were committed and people need to go to jail.”
Per Real Clear Politics, below is a partial transcript of the exchange:
BARTIROMO: So all of these misconceptions and misrepresentations in the Mueller report, is there going to be accountability here, congressman? I mean, you talk about John Brennan, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, James Comey, all of these people that created this narrative that the president was colluding with Russia, will we see accountability?
REP. MARK MEADOWS: Well it’s the number one question I get asked back home in North Carolina and across the country: “Will there be accountability?” And I’m here to tell you this morning, the answer is yes. Bill Barr is serious about making sure they reestablish the reputation of the FBI and the Department of Justice, and I can tell you that unless someone actually goes to jail, most of the people will think that accountability didn’t happen, but I believe based on the documents I’ve seen, that crimes were committed and people need to go to jail.
BARTIROMO: And what about the IG report, a word on that because we’ve all been waiting for this. What can you tell us, Michael Horowitz’s report?
The conversation continued:
MEADOWS: Well only Michael Horowitz knows the exact timeframe of when it’s coming out. I would rather them get it right than get it fast and I believe their whole team is doing a very good job in making sure that they hold those people accountable like you just spoke about.
MEADOWS: Well if the Democrats are smart, they will let him be done with it because I can tell you, Jim Jordan and I are very prepared to ask a series of at least eight different questions that would indicate perhaps a lack of thoroughness on behalf of Robert Mueller and his team about Mueller report.
BARTIROMO: So in other words, why did he have all Democratic donors on his team of investigators?
MEADOWS: Well it’s not even just that. I believe that Andrew Weissman, who was actually involved in some of the early work at the FBI and DOJ when they were first starting with Peter Strzok and Bruce Ohr and them, you know, he came on. I think his fingerprint is all over this particular Mueller report and from my perspective, it’s a one-sided report that doesn’t give the privilege of a cross-examination, so if they come, they need to be prepared to be cross-examined with the facts which would paint a very different picture on behalf of this president, and give credence to why he has been so upset with the ongoing investigation.
Meadows covered every base with his response.
He indicated that “indictments are ready” and that “jail time” could be looming for some involved in Russiagate.
He also said that the DOJ IG report “investigating the investigators” could also lead to many partisans getting exposed for beginning the phony Russia investigation in the first place.
