CPI - the New Home of Mark Meadows and Cleta Mitchell - Hosted "War Rooms" to Oppose KBJ ConfirmationPublished on April 4, 2022
The Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) hosted "SCOTUS war rooms against Ketanji Brown Jackson," according to an email sent to the group's "partners," a copy of which was obtained by Documented.
"Even before President Biden nominated Ketanji Brown Jackson, CPI was preparing Senate staff from the key Senate offices who would be vetting her," reads the email.
"In SCOTUS war rooms with CPI staff and conservative organizations from across the country, we identified ways that outside organizations can help Senate staffers prepare for Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings."
"And we continue to work hand-in-glove with staffers, Senators, and movement allies to make sure those who are vetting Brown-Jackson get the details they need."
Since 2020, CPI has set up numerous former Trump administration loyalists with new platforms, either directly within CPI or by helping them launch closely aligned groups that are housed out of the CPI office. These include former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and former Trump campaign lawyer Cleta Mitchell, both of whom have received subpoenas from the House January 6th Committee. Both Meadows and Mitchell are employed directly by CPI. Stephen Miller, who has also received a subpoena, is now running America First Legal, a group that Mark Meadows helped Miller launch.
According to the CPI 2021 annual report, linked to in this email, the group's fundraising went from $7.3m in 2020, to $19.7m in 2021. Politico has reported that $1 million went from Donald Trump's Save America PAC to CPI in 2021.
