    White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows declined an interview with a pool producer on Capitol Hill Monday after she expressed concern that he was preparing to speak with his mask off. Meadows was walking out during a break in the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett before the Senate Judiciary Committee. He offered to move the microphone back further from the media and briefly took his mask off. But he then put his mask back on and departed saying he would not “talk through a mask.” Since some senators recently contracted COVID-19, many have chosen to keep their masks on when speaking to reporters.
