North Carolina AG will not sue Meadows for voter registration
It’s a small victory for Meadows, at a time when he could use one. Trump’s former aide was named multiple times in newly released transcripts of the Jan. 6 committee inquiry, which detail texts between Meadows and Donald Trump Jr.; reports that he burned documents in his office fireplace in the weeks leading up to the uprising; and references to his Secret Service code name, « Leverage ».
In its statement, the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office called out Meadows for his role in the events of January 6, 2021 and his efforts to nullify the 2020 election claiming there was significant voter fraud. That role, however, was not sufficiently relevant to the voter fraud allegations at issue in the state, the office said.
But Meadows may not be completely off the hook.
« If further information regarding the election fraud allegations comes to light in any subsequent investigation or prosecution by authorities in other jurisdictions, we reserve the right to reopen this matter, » the office said.
