One COULD infer that for the outgoing House Republican it was personal?
GOP Rep. Liz Cheney HAS been heavy on Donald Trump’s case…..
As it SHOULD be….
We’re talking about a guy who attempted a political coup in broad daylight….
So of us made sure to mention over and OVER that absent Donald Trump?
Liz Cheney IS STILL a bono fided REPUBLICAN to party moderates, centrists and some in the establishment…. Even if she lost hee House seat in the midterms….
As the wind shifts away from Trump?
Things just COULD elevate for the Wyoming Republican politically and media wise….
Republicans will have a House majority for the next two years….
They ARE going to be trying to discredit as much of the House Select committe’s work as they can….
Now, less than six weeks before the conclusion of the committee’s work, Cheney’s influence over the committee’s final report has rankled many current and former committee staff. They are angered and disillusioned by Cheney’s push to focus the report primarily on former president Donald Trump, and have bristled at the committee morphing into what they have come to view as the vehicle for the outgoing Wyoming lawmaker’s political future….
Several committee staff members were floored earlier this month when they were told that a draft report would focus almost entirely on Trump and the work of the committee’s Gold Team, excluding reams of other investigative work.
Potentially left on the cutting room floor, or relegated to an appendix, were many revelations from the Blue Team — the group that dug into the law enforcement and intelligence community’s failure to assess the looming threat and prepare for the well-forecast attack on the Capitol. The proposed report would also cut back on much of the work of the Green Team, which looked at financing for the Jan. 6 attack, and the Purple Team, which examined militia groups and extremism.
“We all came from prestigious jobs, dropping what we were doing because we were told this would be an important fact-finding investigation that would inform the public,” said one former committee staffer. “But when [the committee] became a Cheney 2024 campaign, many of us became discouraged.”….
“Donald Trump is the first president in American history to attempt to overturn an election and prevent the peaceful transfer of power,” [ Cheney spokesman Jeremy ] Adler said. “So, damn right Liz is ‘prioritizing’ understanding what he did and how he did it and ensuring it never happens again.”
Adler added, “Some staff have submitted subpar material for the report that reflects long-held liberal biases about federal law enforcement, Republicans, and sociological issues outside the scope of the Select Committee’s work. She won’t sign onto any ‘narrative’ that suggests Republicans are inherently racist or smears men and women in law enforcement, or suggests every American who believes God has blessed America is a white supremacist.”…..
The internal tensions over Cheney’s role also stand in contrast to the widespread public praise from many Democrats and even some Republicans, who have hailed her for standing up to Trump and defending democratic norms. Cheney, under siege by Trump and ostracized by the GOP, was defeated in the Wyoming primary this summer and will leave office in January….
