Taking classified documents home is a crime. Making copies of classified documents is a crime. Handing out copies of classified documents is also a crime.
The 1/6 Committee report explains why the DOJ did not act on the criminal referral of Meadows for contempt of Congress. Mark Meadows was also spearheading the fake elector plot from inside the White House.
Meadows looks to be in a great deal of criminal jeopardy.
