Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows sought to distance the Trump family and their loyal allies from taking accountability for their part in inciting the riots at the Capitol. 

Meadows was speaking on ‘Fox & Friends’ Wednesday when he was asked by Brian Kilmeade if it was wise for Trump and his cronies to host the rally prior to the assault  on the federal building that resulted in five dead.  

‘When we start looking at the rally, Brian, we are focused more on that than we are really we need to be focused on today,’ Meadows claimed. ‘When we start to look at America, it needs to be about what is important to people on Main Street.’

Former president Donald Trump and his family were just a few notables who spoke to thousands outside of the National Mall, pushing their debunked claims of voter fraud and a rigged presidential election.

Earlier on Tuesday a majority of Republicans had voted in favor of a motion that Trump’s second impeachment is unconstitutional: a sign the former president will likely be acquitted in his upcoming trial.

Paul, senator for Kentucky, forced the vote on the issue, arguing the trial was illegal given that Trump no longer occupies the Oval Office.

'When we start looking at the rally, Brian, we are focused more on that than we are really we need to be focused on today,' Meadows claimed. 'When we start to look at America, it needs to be about what is important to people on Main Street'

Most Republicans, including their leader in the senate, Mitch McConnell, agreed with him.

Forty five of them voted it was unconstitutional. Five GOP senators joined Democrats, to give them 55 votes to proceed.

According to Meadows, the 45 GOP senators voting against the impeachment indicated that it was unconstitutional.  

‘There was a vote yesterday in the senate that suggested that 45 senators said that it was unconstitutional,’ Meadows noted. ‘Let’s get on and be focused on what is important to the American people.’

It would take two-thirds of the Senate to convict Trump, which would mean 17 Republican senators would have to cross ranks and vote for the conviction.

Paul needed more than 34 votes from Republicans to demonstrate that a Trump conviction would seem all but impossible. He got 44 to join him. 

On Wednesday, the Conservative Partnership Institute announced that Meadows was hired to be a senior partner after it was reported that the former Chief of Staff was scrambling to find work.
