Leaked texts show Mark Meadows wanted Trump to

turn to Marshall Act to stay in office

Mark Meadows

the former White House chief of staff

was forced to submit 2,319 text conversations to the House Select Committee considering the attack on the Capitol on January 6. On Monday, Meadows was in touch with lawmakers about reversing the 2020 election.

The TPM report reveals a stunning letter from Rep.

Ralph Norman (RS.C) to Meadows

sent on January 17, 2021, just three days before Joe Biden was due to take office. While CNN has previously claimed that Meadows was informed of attempts to seize voting machines and other schemes to overturn President Biden's victory by Trump allies in contested states

the TPM report reveals that Meadows sent this message.

In the book

  • Norman seems to advocate that in order to rig the election in his favor
  • or the Marshall Act, as Norman expressed it

  • in his final hours in office.


seeing what happens so quickly

reading the Dominion lawsuits trying to stop any meaningful investigation, we are at the point of" no return "in saving our Republic!!

Invoking the Marshall Act is our lone remaining option!

Please urge the President to do this!! Norman wrote.

The series also reveals that Meadows was at the center of several meetings between 34 members of Congress to discuss ways to support Trump's efforts to rig the 2020 election.

Several members of Congress, including Sen.

Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Rep. Mo Brooks, were also cited as key figures in the campaign to reverse Trump's defeat and Meadows' messages about them. Intentions to challenge the results (R-Ala.).

On December 21, 2020

Representative Brooks contacted Meadows about arranging a "White House meeting discussing the formulation of our tactics on January 6." Shortly after, Meadows sent a message to Fox News' Brian Kilmeade to confirm the meeting.

Meadows wrote to Kilmeade later that day:

I met with the President with about 15 members of Congress to discuss the evidence of voter fraud in various states as well as to discuss the strategy of presenting the issue to the American people.

The January 6 Committee listed Jordan Reps.

  • Brian Babin (R-Texas), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.)
  • Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.)
  • and Andy Harris (R-Ariz.). Md.) 
  • Jody Hice (R-Ga.)
  • Scott Perry (R-Pa.)

and then elected Deputy Marjorie Taylor Greene among those

who attended the meeting (R-Ga.).

A legal attempt was made to prevent Representative Greene from running for Congress because of her alleged participation on January 6 before the midterm elections.

Good morning, Mark, I'm here in D.C.

Greene wrote to Meadows on December 31

  • we must be organised for the sixth day.
  • I'd like to speak with Rudy Giuliani once again.
  • We didn't talk to him long. Also, anyone can help.
  • We get a lot of members on board.
  • For each mandate, we must choose the best case.

Green told Meadows on January 17 that a number of congressional Republicans wanted Trump to impose martial law. She also seemed to believe that Marshall Marshall was an inspiration for the military to give more power.

Green stated:

Many argue that the only way to save our Republic is for Trump to demand the Marshall Act in our private debate with members only.

In our private conversation with members only, many say that the only way to save our republic is for Trump to demand the Marshall Act

 Green wrote.

  • I don't know about these things.
  • I just wanted you to tell him.
  • They stole this election.
  • We all know.

They'll destroy our country after that. Tell him to make as many disclosures as he can so we can go after Biden and everyone else.

Green reportedly told Zach

  • Williams of the New York Post that she
  • and Steve Bannon would have carried
  • out a successful coup and "armed" if they had organized
  • the attack on the Capitol on January 6.

Riot organizers said on January 6 in Washington

D.C. they attended "dozens" of planning meetings with Meadows and other members of the Trump team as well as White House staff. According to one organizer, the promoter was fully informed of what was happening.

It often appears in these very small groups of national organizers as well.
