    Meadows sues Jan. 6 committee after panel vows contempt proceedings

    Meadows is suing members of the Jan. 6 committee as well as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. The specifics of the civil rights lawsuit were not immediately available at the U.S. District Court in Washington on Wednesday evening.

    The move by Meadows came after the committee said it would pursue contempt proceedings as a result of the former top White House aide deciding to no longer cooperate with the panel’s requests.
    Thompson said his committee has repeatedly tried to identify the areas of inquiry that Meadows believes are protected by executive privilege, but neither Terwilliger nor Meadows have “meaningfully provided that information.” He added that he had given Meadows opportunities to comply with the committee and questioned how the former White House chief of staff could produce documents but then decide not to appear for a deposition to answer questions about them.

    Thompson also questioned how Meadows released a new book in which he wrote about Jan. 6, but is “denying a congressional committee the opportunity to ask him about the attack on our Capitol.” That “marks an historic and aggressive defiance of Congress,” Thompson wrote.
    So if this lawsuit gets fast-tracked, and is found in favor of Congress, would that affect the Bannon trial?

    Meadows is an idiot, if he's not careful, he's going to end up giving the information over in discovery.|

    And I'm not a lawyer, and even I know that's what can happen.

    One guy's take...

    He's doing it intentionally so he can fork it over while saying that he tried not to give it up.

    That's... a weird take. He already has spilled too much tea in his book and angered Trump.

    The hokey pokey he's doing over testifying to the committee seems much more likely a deliberate time-wasting/stalling scenario if he's smart about it... but it seems more like he's a flailing idiot.

    Senate votes to block Biden vaccine mandate — but measure is unlikely to become law
    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/12/08/bide...osha-rule.html

    The Senate voted Wednesday to block President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on private employers in the latest blow to his push to flex federal power to boost vaccinations in the U.S.

    The measure heads to the Democratic-held House. It faces a tougher path to passage in the House, and the Biden administration has threatened a veto if it reaches the president’s desk.

    The Senate approved the measure in a 52-48 vote. Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., and Jon Tester, D-Mont., joined every Republican in supporting it. It needed only a simple majority to pass under the Congressional Review Act, a process that allows Congress to overturn rules made by federal agencies.
    Boop! Krakoa forever!

    You just laid out the entire reason someone would do what I said.

    He's just trying to get out of the corner he painted himself into. Which will obviously look like someone they are about to hit the gong on.
