Shocker. Nancy Pelosi is using every tool in her war chest in an attempt to destroy Former President Donald Trump and his allies in Congress.
Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, one of two Republicans on the Democratic-controlled House select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol protest, was named vice chairwoman of the panel.
In a statement, Cheney said she accepted the position to achieve the goal of “conducting a non-partisan, professional, and thorough investigation of all the relevant facts regarding January 6th and the threat to our Constitution we faced that day.”
Non-partisan?! If that’s the case, then why aren’t there any allies of Donald Trump on that committee? Why was every America First Republican lawmaker blocked from entry?
The presence of Cheney and fellow Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger on the committee has enraged some other Republicans. They were appointed to the panel by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rather than by Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who pulled all his Republican recommendations after Pelosi blocked two of his picks from sitting on the panel. Seven other Democrats sit on the committee.
Now Republicans are fuming at moves from the committee that signal it will seek Republican lawmakers’ records from phone and social media companies.
As the committee turns its focus to former President Donald Trump and issues records requesting information from executive branch agencies and social media companies, Cheney and Kinzinger face calls to be removed from the House Republican Conference.
Many believe Cheney and Kinzinger are in fact spies for the Democrats that Republicans are forced to invite to strategy meetings, despite their inability to trust them.
Her vice chairwoman position, though, helps bolster Democratic assertions that the committee is bipartisan. This is their only utility to Pelosi and the Democrats. Their vehement anti-Trump sentiments are merely an added bonus.
