Alyssa Farah Griffin was told not to Quit by Mark Meadows: "What if I could tell you we're actually going to be staying?"
Alyssa Farah Griffin discussed the conversation in an interview in which she said she had tried to discover who had let the group of individuals into the White House.
The former White House communications director, Alyssa Farah Griffin, was told to not resign because Trump would not be leaving office. Who told her? Mark Meadows, the former White House Chief of Staff.
Alyssa Farah Griffin discussed the conversation in an interview in which she said she had tried to discover who had let the group of individuals into the White House. This group included names such as Michael Flynn and Patrick Byrne, the CEO of Overstock.
She said, “Who waived them? Which is putting them through security to get onto the White House grounds. We don’t even have that answer now.” Alyssa Farah Griffin then went on to say that she assumed it was Mark Meadows who let them all in.
"I suspect it was Mark Meadows and I say that because I can tell you before I resigned, I said 'Sir, I'm planning to move on, I want to put in my notice.' And he said to me, 'What if I could tell you we're actually going to be staying?' You can interpret that as hypothetical, but there were people around the president telling him that, and that's what led to this absolute insanity.”
Since the claims have been made public, Ben Williamson, a spokesperson for Mark Meadows, stated that they are false. Garret Ziegler, Peter Navarro’s former aide, admitted the group to the White House on December 18th which gave way to the usual procedure for gaining access to the Oval Office. Access to the Oval Office is something that would’ve needed the approval of Mark Meadows at the time.
Griffin has since resigned and has been another upcoming critic of Trump. Her father, a MAGA supporter, even boycotted her wedding as a consequence.
