Photos posted by right-wing Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) are triggering speculation that he could be part of a mysterious shadow “cabinet” in Donald Trump’s pretend presidency recently exposed by former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.

Cawthorn tweeted photos of himself at a conference room table at Trump’s Bedminster golf club in New Jersey with the former president and “business leaders.”
“On Saturday, I hosted a round table with special guest [former] President Donald Trump and several key business leaders to create a path forward to victory for the country and to provide election security nationwide,” Cawthorn tweeted.
The “roundtable” also apparently doubled as a $50,000-a-head fundraiser for Cawthorn.
Meadows revealed in a Newsmax interview that he and “President Trump” were meeting with unidentified “cabinet members” to discuss “plans to move forward in a real way.”
He refused to detail the plans. Nor did Meadows identify the “cabinet members.” It was not clear if they were Trump’s former cabinet members from when he actually was president or part of some new panel assembled by Trump and Meadows.
