Aide To Mark Meadows Directly Implicates ‘Several’ Members Of Congress In Attempted Election Coup

Today’s public hearing of the January 6 House Select Committee expanded the conspiracy that had already been laid out in previous hearings, and we learned that Republican members of Congress were indeed part of the conspiracy to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Cassidy Hutchinson was a top aide to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and the committee played portions of her videotaped testimony in which she named Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and “several members of Congress” who in late November and early December took part in a plan to draw up a slate of alternate electors who would go against the will of the voters and suggest that failed former president Donald Trump should remain in office.

Several members of Congress. Who might they be? We don’t know yet, and Hutchinson didn’t name them in the portion of her testimony that was broadcast today. But the fact there are multiple Republicans tells us that we do indeed have a conspiracy to commit a criminal act against the United States, which is a very serious offense.

The House Select Committee knows the names, and it’s safe to bet they will be laying them out in the days ahead or in their final report, which will be released before the midterm elections in November.

Just for fun, let’s speculate who might be on that list of “several.”

  • Rep. Jim Jordan (OH)
  • Rep. Andy Biggs (AZ)
  • Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA)
  • Sen. Ted Cruz (TX)
  • Sen. Josh Hawley (MO)

Once those names are made public, criminal referrals can be made to the Justice Department, provided they haven’t already been.

There’s going to be some sleepless nights ahead for several in the GOP.
