Rep. Mark Meadows Tells Hannity Flynn Memo is ‘Good News for President Trump’
On Fox News on Tuesday night, Sean Hannity‘s coverage of the Michael Flynn sentencing memo included a discussion with House Freedom Caucus members Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC). Meadows told Hannity he thinks that the sentencing memo represents “good news” for Trump and his administration, and that Flynn’s cooperation was probably him confirming to the investigators that there was no collusion.
In the clip above, Hannity began with a very long, leading question, asking “wouldn’t it be a normal process for an incoming director such as General Flynn to have conversations with his soon-to-be counterparts about important issues, even a change of policy that might be coming or different points of view that they may have considering that we have diametrically opposed views between Obama and President Trump?”
Meadows agreed that it would be a “natural occurrence” to have such a conversation. He then said that although people are focused on what is redacted, people should also mention what is not in the report. “There is no suggestion that Michael Flynn had anything to do with collusion,” he said. “He was with the transition team. He was part of the campaign. And, yet, there is no mention of collusion.”
“I think it’s good news for President Trump tonight, that this is what it’s come down to,” said Meadows. “Even though they said he substantially cooperated, I think he substantially cooperated to say that there was no collusion and we can look at it with that in mind.”
Toward the end of the discussion, Meadows added “if this is the best we’ve got coming out of Mueller’s investigation, it is time that he writes the report, closes it out, and let the American people focus on what is important to them, which is really about making sure they keep their jobs and the economy, and what the President has been delivering on.”
“Hopefully this is the beginning of the end,” said Meadows. “But it can come none too soon for most Americans.”
