CHENEY'S CHUTZPAH: Liz Calls for More 'Confessions'

Linkedin Share

There have been several occasions in which it has become obvious that the January 6th select committee is out of touch with the rest of the nation, and this week provided yet another example of this severe fallibility.

The committee has been taking aim at Trump and the MAGA Movement for months now hoping to move the needle on the midterm elections by shaming and insulting those who would support the former President.

It hasn’t worked.

The “red wave” is still on the way, and the electorate hasn’t done a whole lot of mind-changing on account of these latest public hearings.  Still, some within the committee are posturing and puffing themselves up by using loaded language to describe their work.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) lauded  “confessions” to the January 6th Committee on Thursday night, as what critics have called a “show trial” aired its eighth public hearing in prime time on national television. The hearing produced little new evidence, but many denunciations of former President Donald Trump.

Cheney lauded those former Trump administration aides who had come forward to denounce the 45th president, including former White House staffer Cassidy Hutschinson, though her sensational testimony last month has since been discredited — including by Thursday’s hearing, albeit inadvertently.

Here’s where it gets rather bold:

She described their testimony as “confessions”:

“The case against Donald Trump in these hearings is not made by witnesses who were his political enemies. It is instead a series of confessions by Donald Trump’s own appointees, his own friends, his own campaign officials, people who worked for him for years, and his own family. They have come forward. And they have told the American people the truth.”

Cheney also boasted that efforts to challenge the committee and its subpoenas were failing, and said the committee could look forward to more such “confessions.”

She said: “Efforts to litigate and overcome immunity and executive privilege claims have been successful, and those continue. Doors have opened, new subpoenas have been issued, and the dam has begun to break.”

This is almost certainly a public relations tactic, as Cheney’s choice of words denotes a guilt that hasn’t been proven.
