The majority knows Biden and the Left is attempting the greatest Heist of our History,” one text read.

“This is a fight of good versus evil,” Meadows wrote to Thomas on Nov. 24. “This is a fight of good versus evil. Evil always looks like the victor until the King of Kings triumphs,” he wrote, “Do not grow weary in well doing. The fight continues. I have staked my career on it. Well at least my time in DC on it.”
