(Presidentialwire.com)- Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff during the Trump administration, was warned about taking a job under the former President Donald Trump.
In March of 2020, Meadows left his influential role at the House Freedom Caucus so he could become Trump’s fourth chief of staff during his administration.
At the time, Ann Coulter, who is a conservative commentator and wrote the book “In Trump We Trust,” said she told Meadows that he shouldn’t accept the job. Just a year before he accepted the job, Coulter said she pleaded with Meadows to stay away from the White House, in a text message chain she had with one of Meadow’s’ staffers.
Recently, Coulter tweeted a screenshot of the texts she sent in 2019. They said:
“There’s no way he [Meadows] can leave the House for some b.s. Trump appt. A Trump appointment is Confederate money. The only position that would give him any power is as Jared’s valet.”
The last sentence was referring to Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law who was one of the top advisors during the Trump administration.
Coulter has been a long-time critic of the establishment section of the Republican Party. She backed Trump during his 2016 presidential primary run, though she later turned away from him after he didn’t deliver on promises he made, she said.
She’s described Trump as “abjectly stupid,” going as far as accusing him of betraying his loyal supporters.
Coulter has rejected the idea that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump, insisting that the reason he lost to Democrat Joe Biden is that he didn’t deliver for conservative voters during his time in the White House.
Last year, she said:
“He [Trump] cares about them and he not only betrays them, but he lies to them.”
Not long after Trump lost the election in 2020, Coulter said she was “glad” with the outcome.
Meadows obviously didn’t listen to Coulter’s advice. In fact, he went as far as not just taking the job, but working hard on Trump’s behalf to push his claims of election interference and fraud.
The House’s special January 6 committee has accessed him of coordinating with many of his former congressional colleagues, as well as others in Washington, to try to get the 2020 election results overturned.
He was apparently also in support of pressuring then-Vice President Mike Pence trying to stop the certification of the Electoral College so that Trump could win instead of Biden.
Meadows had told Ohio Republican Representative Jim Jordan, in fact, that he “pushed for” Pence to do so.
Now, it’s possible Meadows is regretting that decision to join Trump’s White House.
Earlier this week, the executive report released by the House select committee officially named Meadows a co-conspirator of the effort “to obstruct a lawful function of the government.
In 2021, the House committee referred Meadows to the Department of Justice for criminal contempt of Congress charges after he didn’t comply with a subpoena.
