(FreedomBeacon.com)- While Liz Cheney claims her objective is to save the Republican Party, her words and actions tell a different story.
After being voted out of the House Republican leadership, Cheney ran to the corporate news media to attack her Republican colleagues.
Claiming “the majority of the Republican Party is not where I am,” Cheney continued her crusade against former President Donald Trump’s “unproven” claims of election fraud.
“I know that there are many members who have expressed concern about their own security,” Cheney told ABC’s This Week host Jonathan Karl. “And I think that’s an important point to think about as well, that we now live in a country where members’ votes are affected because they’re worried about their security, they’re worried about threats on their lives.”
Shortly after she was voted out of the leadership, Cheney rushed to the news cameras and declared that she would “do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”
Given that her job as Conference Chair was to do everything she could to raise money and get Republicans elected to Congress, it appears the Republican caucus did the right thing removing her.
“It is my responsibility as an elected official — it’s my responsibility as a leader – to tell the truth,” Cheney told Jonathan Karl.
Ironic considering Cheney continues to perpetrate the fiction that the events of January 6 were an “armed insurrection” directly ordered by President Trump.
Not particularly truthful.
On Sunday, Julie Kelly from American Greatness released exclusive video footage from January 6 that shows Capitol Police giving protesters permission to enter the Capitol.
In the video, one officer tells the group – which included “Q Shaman” Jacob Chansley – We’re not against . . . you need to show us . . . no attacking, no assault, remain calm.”
Chansley can be seen shouting over the noise, “This has to be peaceful. We have the right to peaceably assemble.”
“The video directly contradicts what government prosecutors allege in a complaint filed January 8 against Chansley,” Julie Kelly explains.
Kelly writes that the 44-second video clip is reportedly part of a much longer video that has yet to be released.
