Chief of Staff Mark Meadows,
President Donald Trump allegedly met with several lawmakers for several hours on Monday evening to discuss his path forward regarding alleged voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
The President reportedly met with Republican Reps. Matt Gaetz of Florida and Mo Brooks of Alabama.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows took to Twitter on Monday night after the meeting and said the president is “preparing to fight back.”
“Several members of Congress just finished a meeting in the Oval Office with President @realDonaldTrump, preparing to fight back against mounting evidence of voter fraud. Stay tuned,” he tweeted.
Attorney Sidney Powell was also allegedly at the meeting.
“Four people briefed on events said Sidney Powell was back at the White House again today, for third time in four days,” New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted.
On Sunday night, Powell was spotted by CNN leaving the residence side of the White House shortly before 9 p.m. ET.
Powell denied that she was meeting with President Donald Trump, but when pressed again as to whether she met with the President or other White House officials, she retorted: “It would be none of your business.”
In a meeting at the White House on Friday, President Donald Trump reportedly weighed appointing Sidney Powell as a special counsel to investigate alleged voter fraud in the 2020 election.
According to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, the president met with Powell and former White House national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn to discuss the idea.
The Times reported:
Most of his advisers opposed the idea, two of the people briefed on the discussion said, including Rudy W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, who in recent days sought to have the Department of Homeland Security join the campaign’s efforts to overturn Trump’s loss in the election.
Mr. Giuliani joined the discussion by phone, while Ms. Powell was at the White House for a meeting that became raucous at times, according to one of the people briefed on what took place. Other administration officials drifted in and out of the meeting, two of the people briefed said, and the White House counsel, Pat A. Cipollone, pushed back on the ideas being proposed.
Ms. Powell accused other Trump advisers of being quitters, according to the people briefed.
“Trump also asked about Ms. Powell being given security clearances to pursue her work, two of the people briefed on the meeting said,” the Times reported.
The report added: “Ms. Powell accused other Trump advisers of being quitters, according to the people briefed.”
