Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows won't have to end up working for the Trump Organization, after all.

The former Republican lawmaker is joining the Conservative Partnership Institute, a "networking hub" for conservatives run by former South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, according to sources who spoke to Axios.

Meadows has been advising Trump on his upcoming impeachment trial, but will serve behind the scenes in his new role to cultivate new firebrand lawmakers like Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and Jim Jordan.

DeMint started the CPT to help conservatives become more effective legislators once they were elected, and Meadows will start immediately to build grassroots support to oppose President Joe Biden's nominees in policies in his first 100 days in office.
