Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) finally put her cards on the table.
Even though she vowed she would conduct an unbiased investigation into the events of January 6, Cheney just reached about as far as one could reach to link Trump to the events of that day.
Cheney stated that it now appears as though then-President Trump was “personally involved in the planning and execution of January 6.”
He Said, She Said
Whether you support Trump or not, I think most of us can agree the findings of the Select Committee on January 6 have been predetermined.
If you do not believe that, all you need to do is hear the argument given by Cheney to tie Trump to the planning of the event.
There is no proof, zero, that Trump planned that event, yet that is what Cheney claims she has.
If they had it, we would know about it because DC leaks like rusty old faucets these days.
Instead, she is taking Trump’s attempts at using executive privilege and Bannon’s snub of the subpoena to claim it shows Trump actually planned the riot.
Cheney stated, “Based on the committee’s investigation, it appears that Mr. Bannon had substantial advance knowledge of the plans for January 6 and likely had an important role in formulating those plans.
“Mr. Bannon was in the war room at the Willard on January 6.
“He also appears to have detailed knowledge regarding the president’s efforts to sell millions of Americans the fraud that the election was stolen.”
She continued that their actions “suggest that President Trump was personally involved in the planning and execution of January 6.
“And we will get to the bottom of that.”
The committee voted unanimously to hold Bannon in contempt as well as referring him to the DOJ for criminal charges.
Since Joe has already told the DOJ he wants them indicted and prosecuted, it is a given that is exactly what will happen.
The measure goes before the full House on Thursday, but it is a safe bet it will pass along party lines with a few anti-Trumpers on the Republican side thrown into the mix.
Like or hate Trump, this committee is a dog and pony show, nothing else.
