Congressman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) made some stunning allegations against the State Department and some sitting U.S. ambassadors during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night.
Meadows claimed that some soon-to-be-released documents will show that some former and current U.S. ambassadors conspired with the Department of Justice to undermine the presidency of Donald Trump.
The congressman explained that not only did President Trump not collude with Russian actors, but several “players” throughout the government were actively trying to “take this president down.”

“It’s additional information that is coming out that will show not only was there no collusion, but there was a coordinated effort to take this president down. We talk about the ‘Deep State.’ There are players now, even ambassadors, that are sitting ambassadors that were involved in part of this with the FBI-DOJ.”
Meadows further explained that he is working to declassify as many records as possible to show Americans about this “coordinated effort” to delegitimize President Trump.
“I think when the American people see what I’ve seen, they will judge for themselves and know that this has all been a hoax,” said Meadows.
The Strzok transcripts revealed allegations that the Department of Justice struck a deal with Hillary Clinton’s attorneys to prevent the FBI from investigating some of her private servers as they pertain to the Clinton Foundation — a non-profit ran by the Clintons that many believe could have been part of a pay-for-play operation.
The Page transcripts revealed that members of the Obama administration urged the Department of Justice not to charge Clinton for her use of the private email server ahead of the 2016 elections. James Comey, the FBI director at the time, declined to charge Clinton and claimed her actions were “grossly negligent,” but not criminal.
If the allegations by Page and Strzok are factual, it would make it look as though the DOJ was happy to work in ways that would benefit Clinton and undermine Trump. It isn’t yet clear how incriminating Meadows’ pending documents will be as far as his allegations that there was a “coordinated effort” between ambassadors and the State Department to weaken the Trump presidency.
