Truth is a rare commodity in today’s political environment.
Mark Meadows, Donald Trump’s former Chief of Staff during the insurrection, has testified before a grand jury regarding events leading up to and during the uprising. His lawyer said that Meadows told the truth "where he had a legal obligation to do so".
This means that as the closest person to Trump on January 6th, he was likely given immunity from prosecution to testify against his former boss, and that testimony will likely be pivotal in holding the former president accountable. But Meadows had to be coerced.
Why would someone only tell the truth when there is a legal obligation? Isn't that simply the right thing to do?
Then there’s Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley who said recently that his committee members investigating Joe Biden for wrongdoing are “not interested in whether the accusations are accurate”, essentially admitting that they're only out to smear the president.
