Donald Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, was granted immunity by special counsel Jack Smith and has met, multiple times, with federal prosecutors investigating the former president’s attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election, according to ABC News.
Meadows reportedly spoke with Smith’s team at least three times this year, ABC reported, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter. One of those times was before a federal grand jury, which came only after Smith granted Meadows immunity to testify under oath.
Meadows told Smith’s team that the allegations that there was widespread fraud in November 3, 2020 was baseless and Trump was being “dishonest” with the public when he first claimed to have won the election only hours after polls closed election night.
“Obviously we didn’t win,” Meadows told Smith’s team, according to a source.
