Wyoming’s Liz Cheney, defeated by a 25-point margin in her state’s Republican primaries and in a lame-duck appearance at her partisan January 6th Committee, used her final moments in the House to attack former president Donald Trump in a blathering monologue earlier this week.

“No man who would behave that way, at that moment in time can ever serve in any position of authority in our nation again, he is unfit for any office,” Cheney said in reference to Trump. “The committee recognizes that our work has only begun it’s only the initial step in addressing President Trump’s effort to remain in office illegally. Prosecutors are considering the implications of the conduct that we described in our report.”
Cheney was referring to the committee’s recommendation that Donald Trump have criminal charges brought against him for his alleged misconduct leading up to and during the events of January 6th.
“January 6 2021 was the first time an American president refused his constitutional duty to transfer power peacefully to the next,” she continued. “In our work over the last 18 months, the Select Committee has recognized our obligation to do everything we can to ensure this never happens again.”
Noticeably missing from the Select Committee’s work and presentations was the opportunity for the accused to defend themselves. Indeed, the entire committee focused solely on their narrative without ever affording defendants a chance to rebut the official messaging.
Many Americans still want answers surrounding the FBI’s involvement that day, as well as information about Ray Epps. There are also unanswered questions about why the framing of January 6th began by remarking on the deaths of police officers when such reporting has since been retracted.
Democrats have already begun promoting the idea that any president accused of crimes should have his Supreme Court justices removed from their positions. But sure, this is just about telling the truth.
“At the beginning of our investigation, we understood that tens of millions of Americans had been persuaded by President Trump that the 2020 election was stolen by overwhelming fraud,” Cheney went on. “And we also knew this was flatly false. We knew that dozens of state and federal judges had addressed and resolved all manner of allegations about the election.”
“Our legal system functioned as it should but our president would not accept the outcome. Among the most shameful of this committee’s findings, was that President Trump sat in the dining room off the Oval Office watching the violent riot at the Capitol, on television for hours,” Cheney added. “He would not issue a public statement instructing his supporters to disperse and leave the Capitol, despite urgent pleas from his White House staff and dozens of others to do so.”
“Members of his family, his White House lawyers, virtually all those around him knew that this simple act was critical. For hours, he would not do it,” she continued.
“During this time, law enforcement agents were attacked and seriously injured. The capital was invaded, the electoral count was halted and the lives of those in the capital were put at risk.”
“In addition to being unlawful as described in our report. This was an utter moral failure and a clear dereliction of duty. Evidence of this can be seen in the testimony of President Trump’s own White House counsel, and several other White House witnesses,” the establishment RINO concluded.
