Mark Meadows

  • North Carolina's attorney general says former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows won't face voter fraud charges related to his 2020 registration and absentee vote in the state. Attorney General Josh Stein told The Associated Press on Friday that there isn't sufficient evidence to warrant the prosecution of the former Donald Trump aide or his wife, Debra. At issue is the address that Meadows used in Macon County to register to vote. He later cast a mail-in ballot. Meadows is a former western North Carolina congressman.
  • The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation says it has submitted to state prosecutors the findings of its voter fraud probe into Mark Meadows, a former White House chief of staff to President Donald Trump, who was simultaneously registered to vote in North Carolina and two other states earlier this year. The State Bureau of Investigation announced Tuesday that it has turned over the case file detailing its investigation into Meadows' North Carolina voter registration and listed residence to Attorney General Josh Stein's office. Prosecutors with the attorney general's office will determine whether criminal charges are appropriate, the bureau said in a statement.
  • A judge has ordered former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to testify before a special grand jury that's investigating whether President Donald Trump and his Republican allies illegally tried to influence Georgia's 2020 election. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis opened the investigation early last year into actions taken by Trump and others to overturn his loss to Democrat Joe Biden. Because Meadows lives in South Carolina, Willis had to use a process that involved getting a judge in that state to order him to appear in Georgia. Meadows' attorney has argued executive privilege and other rights shield Meadows from testifying.
  • Former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows was reportedly registered to vote simultaneously in three states, including South Carolina. State officials said Friday that the former congressman and his wife registered to vote in South Carolina earlier this year. North Carolina officials removed Meadows from their lists this month after learning he'd voted in Virginia last year. The South Carolina registration was first reported by The Washington Post, which said Meadows' Virginia registration is still active.
