Washington, DC -- Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement in response to efforts by House Democrats to hold Mark Meadows in criminal contempt:
"Speaker Pelosi's January 6th Select Committee is not about protecting the rule of law or preserving the integrity of the Republic. If so, she would have responded to the numerous violent and deadly mob attacks that rolled from city to city in the summer of 2020, including Washington D.C.
"Today's contempt vote is nothing more than an effort to destroy individuals like Mark Meadows. Mark not only served President Trump, he sacrificially served the nation. Nancy Pelosi is revealing her contempt for the country by pursuing her political goal of destroying Donald Trump and those who supported him and his policies.
"The American people should see this for what it is -- politics at its worst," concluded Perkins.
