Liz Cheney, the soon-to-be former representative from Wyoming who’s acting as Nancy Pelosi’s puppet on the Jan. 6 committee, told “Meet the Press” on Sunday the committee has no intention of giving former President Donald Trump a platform to address the country.
Responding to a lay-up question by lapdog “journalist” Chuck Todd about the potential for Trump testimony before the committee, which subpoenaed Trump last week, Cheney ruled out any kind of live appearance for the 45th president.
But Cheney being Cheney these days, she couldn’t give an honest answer for why that is.
She told Todd the committee did not want to give Trump the chance to turn the committee proceedings into a “food fight” but there was a much more obvious answer — one a Democrats’ toady Chuck Todd would never explore.
Check it out here:
“The committee treats this matter with great seriousness,” Cheney told Todd. “And we are going to proceed in terms of the questioning the former president under oath.
“It may take multiple days, and it will be done with a level of rigor and discipline and seriousness that it deserves. We are not going to allow the former president … He’s not going to turn this into a circus. This isn’t going to be, you know, his first debate against Joe Biden and the circus and the food fight that that became. This is a far too serious set of issues.”
Yeah, well, let’s sum all that up in two words: They’re terrified.
Do you think Trump should testify before the Jan. 6 committee?
Yes: 0% (0 Votes)
No: 0% (0 Votes)
The members of the committee — very much including Liz Cheney — know damn well that Trump is an enduringly popular figure among conservatives and Republicans — or roughly half the population of the United States. Cheney herself was trounced in the August Republican primary for Wyoming’s congressional seat because of her Ahab-obsession with getting Trump.
They also know just how flimsy the whole case is for their grandiosely named Select Committee…
