Mark Meadows Tapped for New Top House GOP Committee Role

With Rep. Jim Jordan moving to the top spot in the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Mark Meadow will take over as the Oversight Committee ranking member.

Fox News reports two of President Trump’s biggest allies on Capitol Hill have been selected for top GOP roles on a pair of committees.

The House GOP Steering Committee met Thursday and recommended that Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan serve as ranking member of the powerful House Judiciary Committee effective March 12, and that North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows take Jordan’s spot as Oversight Committee ranking member for the remainder of this Congress, Fox News has confirmed.

The full conference now has to ratify the recommendation, which was first reported by The Hill. Current House Judiciary Committee Chairman Doug Collins, R-Ga., will step down from that post as he pursues a Senate seat.

Jordan and Meadows were among Trump’s strongest defenders during the impeachment proceedings and served on his legal defense team.
