Thompson & Cheney Statement on Motion for Summary Judgment in Mark Meadows Litigation

Apr 22, 2022

Bolton, MS & Wilson, WY—Today, Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) and Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement on the motion for summary judgment that the Select Committee filed today in Mark Meadows’s lawsuit:

“The Select Committee’s filing today urges the Court to reject Mark Meadows’s baseless claims and put an end to his obstruction of our investigation. Mr. Meadows is hiding behind broad claims of executive privilege even though much of the information we’re seeking couldn’t possibly be covered by privilege and courts have rejected similar claims because the committee’s interest in getting to the truth is so compelling. It’s essential that the American people fully understand Mr. Meadows’s role in events before, on, and after January 6th. His attempt to use the courts to cover up that information must come to an end.”
