Claim Mark Meadows worked with FBI against Trump RETRACTED citing alleged source of accusation

Editor’s Note: Ryan Fournier has since recanted these allegations, claiming that the information he’d received “was wrong and incorrect.”

Former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows’ decision to accept immunity in exchange for his testimony has sparked a rumor that he’d worn a wire while serving under former President Donald Trump.

The rumor started with Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier, who tweeted Thursday afternoon that Meadows had worn a wire while serving as chief of staff.

“BREAKING: Allegedly Mark Meadows worked for the FBI as an informant and wore a wire to record all conversations with President Trump, while he was the Chief of Staff to him. This is not only unconstitutional, but it’s criminal. This is the government we live with. It’s up to us to change that,” Fournier claimed.

In additional tweets, Fournier cited “multiple members of Congress and Confidential Informants” as his sources.

“Not only have I received calls from current members of Congress, I received calls from media, who know that I know about this information. I’ve received calls from former members of Congress, who have also explained the same thing to me. This is worse than Watergate. This is going to be the destruction of the FBI,” he added.

Aside from Fournier’s anonymously sourced claims, there appears to be no additional proof that Meadows ever wore a wire while working for Trump.

Plus, Meadows has, for his part, denied that the rumor is legitimate.

“This is completely false and straight out of the Twilight Zone,” his longtime spokesperson, Ben Williamson, told The Gateway Pundit in a statement.

House Judiciary Committee chair Jim Jordan has also squashed the rumor.

“I don’t believe Mark would do that. Mark’s a good friend. But I don’t know. But I trust that Mark … Mark thinks the world of President Trump, as do I. … I want him to be our next president. I think Mark’s in the same place. And Mark is a good man, so I don’t believe what the press writes about him,” he told Newsmax host Eric Bolling.


Despite the rumor’s lack of veracity, it’s taken root on X, where many Trump supporters have begun calling for heads to roll.

“If Mark Meadows wore a wire, he belongs in prison for the rest of his life. That’s treason, plain and simple,” one X user tweeted.

“Trump’s chief of Staff Mark Meadows wearing a wire for the FBI is what High Treason of the highest order looks like,” another user added.

All this comes days after Meadows accepted an immunity deal with special counsel Jack Smith in exchange for his testimony.

“The sources said Meadows informed Smith’s team that he repeatedly told Trump in the weeks after the 2020 presidential election that the allegations of significant voting fraud coming to them were baseless, a striking break from Trump’s prolific rhetoric regarding the election,” ABC News reported.

“According to the sources, Meadows also told the federal investigators Trump was being ‘dishonest’ with the public when he first claimed to have won the election only hours after polls closed on Nov. 3, 2020, before final results were in,” the reporting continued.


In a tweet posted Friday morning, Fournier recanted his allegations.

“Yesterday I put up a tweet alleging that Mark Meadows wore a wire in the White House during the last stretch. I’ve spoke with some of my sources again, and now it seems that information was wrong and incorrect. In fact, two of them retracted their statements on the matter entirely,” he wrote.

He also identified one of his sources as Rep. Mark Walker.
