Liz Cheney Claims 'Incitement' as Trump Criticizes FBI Agents

While Liz Cheney may be on her way out of Washington DC at the end of the year, she certainly isn’t acting like it.

Cheney, who was disowned by the Wyoming State GOP for her constant and shallow criticisms of Donald Trump, lost her congressional primary just weeks ago to a Trump-backed candidate.  Clearly, the party is ready to be rid of Cheney, but instead of recognizing this reality and quietly slithering off into the night, Cheney has turned to absurd new criticisms of the former President, including a new claim that Trump’s criticism of the FBI may be legally culpable “incitement”.

At the rally in Pennsylvania for GOP midterm candidates, the former president speculated that the August 8 FBI raid at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida was part of a plot by his political foes.

“The FBI and the Justice Department have become vicious monsters, controlled by radical-left scoundrels, lawyers, and the media, who tell them what to do — you people right there,” Trump said, apparently pointing to journalists covering the event, “and when to do it.”

Rep. Liz Cheney, one of two Republicans sitting on the House committee, said this showed Trump was deliberately seeking to stir violence.

“Trump is attacking law enforcement and yet again using language he knows will provoke violence. Only one group of Americans has a chance to diminish this danger — Republicans,” tweeted Cheney, who was recently ousted from her Wyoming congressional seat after becoming one of Trump’s fiercest GOP critics.

Cheney then suggested that “her fellow Republicans” should take responsibility for Trump, despite Cheney herself having been ousted from the party in Wyoming.

“If my fellow Republicans fail to step up to stop this,” she said, “they will share the blame for all that follows.”

Of course, it bears mentioning that no charges have been filed against Donald Trump for “incitement” at any time, including in the aftermath of January 6th, 2021, giving Cheney’s claim all of the credibility of a fox guarding the hen house.
