Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said he is “not convinced” that Mark Meadows, who was former President Donald Trump’s last White House chief of staff, has turned over all relevant material requested by the House select committee investigating the January 6th attack on the capitol.
During an appearance Sunday on CBS’s Face the Nation, Kinzinger said Meadows was submitting information to the committee, but “in an attempt to make Donald Trump happy, he stops cooperating. We gave him plenty of space to come back and resume that. He has not.”
Meadows turned over thousands of documents and text messages, but Kinzinger is “not confident” that he “handed over everything at all.”
He continued: “We gave him plenty of space to come back to resume that. He has not. And in fact, he’s waived executive privilege a thousand times by presenting us with what he already has.”
Last week, The Washington Post and CBS News obtained text messages between Meadows and Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Kinzinger said on Sunday that he was unable to confirm or deny the existence of the text messages between Meadows and Ginni Thomas.
