During a recent press conference, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was asked by a reporter to give his thoughts on the recent bombshell revelations from the committee investigation the Capitol riot, where texts from various Fox News personalities, and even Donald Trump Jr., and other Republicans desperately pleaded with then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to convince then-President Donald Trump to quell the violence that was erupting at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
“We’re learning from the House select committee that a number of Republicans had reached out to Mark Meadows asking for Donald Trump to get more involved and do more on January 6 to secure [the Capitol],” CNN’s Manu Raju started out. “We’re you personally in contact with Mark Meadows that day and other White House officials to urge Trump to do more?”
McConnell replied that he was not in contact with Meadows that day, “but I do think we’re all watching as you are what is unfolding on the House side, and it will be interesting to reveal all the participants who were involved.”
