The former chief of staff of then-President Donald Trump, Mark Meadows’s wife Debra, won’t face voter fraud charges in the 2020 Presidential election.

On Friday (December 30), North Carolina’s Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein announced there wasn’t sufficient evidence to charge Meadows and his wife for charges relating to voter fraud.

In a press release, Stein indicated that following an “extensive investigation” by the State Bureau of Investigation into the allegations of fraud.

The allegations stem from Meadows and his wife “concerning their registration and voting in the 2020 elections.”

The state Attorney General added that following a review by his office, they came to the conclusion that there was not “sufficient evidence to bring charges against either of them in this matter.”

Meadows came under scrutiny and investigation after it was revealed that Meadows — a dedicated defender of Trump’s voter fraud claims — had registered to vote in three states, including North Carolina.

An exposé The New Yorker released in March revealed that Meadows had registered to vote in North Carolina three weeks before the state’s deadlines for the state’s 2020 general election.

The address used in the registration was a mobile home in Scaly Mountain, which, according to reports, Meadows didn’t own.

However, it was revealed that cellphone records placed Debra Meadows in and around Scaly Mountain in October 2020 and that the couple had signed a yearlong lease for the mobile home.

However, most of Stein’s statement was devoted to Meadows’s role leading up to January 6.
