George Conway, Anderson Cooper openly speculate on the ‘very strange quietness’ of Mark Meadows

As Special Counsel Jack Smith continues his quest to indict Donald Trump for the events of January 6, 2021, and, in the former president’s words, “take him out” of the 2024 White House race, so-called conservative lawyer George Conway is “intrigued” by the “strange quietness” from Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, suggesting that the North Carolina Republican may have flipped on his embattled ex-boss.

As BizPac Review reported, Trump on Tuesday released a statement in which he revealed that “deranged” Smith sent a letter on “Sunday night!” informing him that he is “a TARGET of the January 6th Grand Jury investigation, and giving me a very short 4 days to report to the Grand Jury, which almost always means an Arrest and Indictment.”

On Wednesday’s episode of CNN’s “AC360,” host Anderson Cooper told Conway that the network is reporting “that the Trump team has not identified anyone else who received a target letter, according to sources.”

“I’m wondering what you read into that,” Cooper asked Conway. “Does it mean that other Trump associates aren’t being charged or do you think there are other targets that haven’t been revealed yet?”

“It also raises questions about, ‘Is there somebody who’s cooperating?'” Cooper continued. “I mean, is a Mark Meadows, who sort of disappeared from the scene, is he perhaps cooperating?”

“I think it’s very, very difficult to read that,” replied Conway. “We don’t know whether or not target letters went out to people and they’re just keeping their mouth shut. We don’t know whether or not — It could be that some people get charged and there may not be a target letter. There are circumstances where prosecutors do that.”

“I also think that the last possibility to me is always the most intriguing, which is, ‘Are there people who are cooperating?'” he said, noting that there was “basically only one person” in the case against Trump over his handling of classified documents “that didn’t end up cooperating.”

Once a regular on the conservative news circuit, Meadows’ low profile in recent months, is enough to fuel “feelings” from Conway.

“We have seen some very strange quietness from, for example, Mark Meadows,” he said. “I just had the feeling that something is going on there. He is someone who ought to be every bit as exposed as Donald Trump. Yet he has been so quiet and they’re just — it just seems like there’s something up with him.”

Meadows famously snubbed his nose at a congressional subpoena from the then-Democrat-led House Committee Investigating Jan. 6, and, unlike Steve Bannon, he avoided a contempt charge from the DOJ.

Former U.S. Attorney Timothy Heaphy, the House Democrats’ lead investigator on their politically-motivated January 6 committee, claimed in February that the Jan. 6 protests were a “multipart plan to prevent the transfer of power” and called for Meadows to face charges.

“The more evidence that we saw of the president’s intent, and others working with him, to take steps to prevent the transfer of power from happening, it started to feel more and more like possible criminal conduct,” he said at the time.

“There is a cast of characters. I think you could look at [Rudolph] Giuliani, and Mark Meadows,” Heaphy stated. “I think that the Justice Department has to look very closely at whether there was an agreement or conspiracy.”
