Title: Former Trump Chief of Staff Granted Immunity in Special Counsel’s Investigation
McCreary County Record – In a significant development, it has been revealed that Mark Meadows, the former chief of staff for Donald Trump, has been granted immunity by special counsel Jack Smith as part of the investigation into the efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. This newly disclosed agreement marks the first public deal in the special counsel’s probe into the events surrounding January 6.
Meadows, who has met with federal prosecutors multiple times, stated that he did not believe the election was stolen and accused Trump of being dishonest in his claims of victory. The details of Meadows’ immunity agreement remain undisclosed, but these types of agreements typically require full cooperation with investigators in exchange for immunity from prosecution.
In response to the report, Trump took to his newly launched social media platform, Truth Social, to deny that Meadows had informed him about the baselessness of claims regarding election fraud.
During his testimony before a federal grand jury, Meadows was questioned about efforts made to overturn the election as well as Trump’s handling of classified documents. It is worth noting that Trump himself is facing multiple charges related to the alleged attempts to overturn the election results and has pleaded not guilty.
Additionally, the special counsel has separately charged Trump with unlawfully retaining classified documents. It remains unclear if Meadows’ immunity deal extends to this further investigation.
In another shocking revelation, Meadows confirmed that Trump hesitated to call on his supporters to cease the January 6 riot at the US Capitol. According to Meadows, Trump even remarked to former House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy that the rioters seemed more upset than he was.
