The Daily Beast reports:
Amid a slew of panicked texts from the likes of Donald Trump Jr. and Sean Hannity, former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows’ phone blew up on Jan. 6 and just after with messages from unnamed politicians steaming and scheming over the 2020 election results.
During a Monday night hearing of the House select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) introduced several text messages from these legislators, saying that “the committee is not naming these figures at this time, as our investigation is ongoing.”

Schiff reads texts from Republican lawmakers to Meadows, including one on January 7 that said, “We tried everything we could in our objection to the 6 states. I’m sorry nothing worked.”
“That is chilling,” Schiff says. “We would like to ask Mr Meadows what he thought about that” pic.twitter.com/IgRyUzmoOu

My 1st guess is it was Jim Jordan who sent the text to Meadows. 2nd guess is Gaetz. The two meth gator girls were too new to have his cell and I doubt Gosar can physically text.

Mark Meadows also had “Texts to and from a member of Congress in November 2020 seeking contact information for the attorney general of Arizona to discuss claims of election fraud.”
Which member of Congress?
My bet is on Paul Gosar.
