‘Corrupt. For Sure’: Liz Cheney Weaponizes the J6 Committee Against WY Woman Running to Replace Her

Western Journal

Published

Not only is GOP Rep. Liz Cheney using her position as the pre-eminent Republican on the Democrats’ Jan. 6 House committee to raise her profile as the country’s top anti-Trump Republican, she’s also using it to attack her enemies at home.

On Tuesday, the committee subpoenaed a Republican adviser who’s been working with Cheney’s most prominent primary challenger. Andrew Surabian had worked with Donald Trump Jr. — but said he had no involvement with anything surrounding the Capitol riot.

The subpoena is the latest black eye for the Jan. 6 committee, which has been nothing more than a kangaroo court. Don’t ask the mainstream media about that, however — they’re taking the committee very seriously. Here at The Western Journal, we’re making sure readers know about the absurdities and outrages coming out of the committee. You can help support our mission by subscribing.

According to a media release from the Jan. 6 committee, Surabian was one of three men subpoenaed Tuesday.

“Andy Surabian and Arthur Schwartz were strategists who both served as advisors to Donald Trump, Jr. and were communicating with individuals including Donald Trump, Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle regarding the January 6th Ellipse rally,” the media release read. “Ross Worthington is a former White House official who helped draft the former President’s January 6th speech for the rally at the Ellipse.”

“The Select Committee is seeking information from individuals who were involved with the rally at the Ellipse. Protests on that day escalated into an attack on our democracy,” said the committee chair, Democrat Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi.

“Protestors became rioters who carried out a violent attempt to derail the peaceful transfer of power. We have reason to believe the individuals we’ve subpoenaed today have relevant information and we expect them to join the more than 340 individuals who have spoken with the Select Committee as we push ahead to investigate this attack on our democracy and ensure nothing like this ever happens again.”

As The Federalist reported, all three men were called upon to testify and hand over documents to the committee between Jan. 31 and Feb. 2.

Surabian, however, said there’s no reason for him to be subpoenaed — and he believes the reason behind it is politically motivated.

“During the time period that the rally was being organized, Mr. Surabian was overseeing a Super PAC in support of Republican Senate candidates in Georgia,” Surabian’s attorney said via a statement, according to the Federalist.

“Mr. Surabian is a close friend to Donald Trump Jr. and is running a Super PAC that opposes the reelection of one of the members of the committee. Accordingly, we believe this is nothing more than harassment of the Committee’s political opponents and is un-American to the core.”

Surabian is, according to Politico, working with Harriet Hageman — a Cheyenne trial attorney who’s running against Cheney in the 2022 primary for Wyoming’s sole House seat.

In September, the outlet reported Hageman “is getting support from a super PAC led by an array of Trump allies. Donald Trump Jr. is serving as honorary chair of the organization, called Wyoming Values PAC, and is expected to be heavily involved in its efforts, including potentially appearing in TV ads.

“The outfit will be steered by former Trump White House official Andy Surabian and James Blair, a Republican strategist with close ties to the former president’s orbit. Others involved include Trump pollster Tony Fabrizio and Jamestown Associates, a Republican consulting firm that produced the Trump campaign’s TV ads.”

And now he’s getting subpoenaed by the Jan. 6 committee — where Liz Cheney is the most prominent Republican. How felicitous!

Or, as one Twitter user put it — “Corrupt. For sure.”

Another Twitterer said Cheney is “turning out to be the Hillary Clinton of the Republican Party.”

The thing is, Hillary Clinton might have a better chance of winning the Wyoming Republican primary than Cheney does.

While there hasn’t been much polling in the race yet, a December poll had Cheney trailing Hageman by a 38 to 18 percent margin, according to the Washington Examiner. Meanwhile, state Rep. Anthony Bouchard got another 12 percent. However, the Examiner reported in July that polling showed only 23 percent of potential GOP primary voters said they’d cast a vote for Cheney versus 77 percent who wouldn’t.

After Cheney voted to impeach former President Donald Trump in January of 2021, the state Republican Party censured her. In November, the party stripped her of recognition.

She’s going to need all the help she can get, in other words. However, that help shouldn’t come from subpoenas from the Jan. 6 committee — particularly if Surabian doesn’t have information pertinent to its investigation.

Americans Unleash on Biden After Encountering Bare Shelves at Grocery Stores Across Country

Western Journal

Published

President Joe Biden’s supply chain crisis has been raging for some time, and it is now wreaking havoc on Americans trying to live their everyday lives.

According to Fox News, a growing number of Americans are experiencing massive shortages at their local grocery stores, and they are directing their ire at Biden because of it.

Many Twitter users began using the hashtag #BareShelvesBiden to showcase the precarious situations at their local stores.

Some users told stories of the lengths they had to go to in order to find seemingly basic food items.

“This was the 2nd store we went to looking for bagels,” one user said. “Found the bagels but zero — ZERO — plain cream cheese. If you want Kraft parmesan cheese or Top Ramen, you’re pretty much out of luck.”

Even CNBC senior White House correspondent Kayla Tausche compared the situation to the apocalypse, which is surprising coming from an employee of a leftist establishment media outlet.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms noticed the problem too, albeit only through the third party she hired to shop for her. She suggested that the supply shortages were a localized issue.

Some commenters felt Bottoms was trying to insinuate that southwest Atlanta was having problems because it is a lower-income area. If that was her intention, residents from other portions of Atlanta and surrounding areas quickly rebutted the claim.

By the looks of it, Biden’s supply chain crisis is affecting almost everyone, regardless of income or political affiliation.

As a general rule, it is not a good development for a president when his failures start to greatly affect the lives of everyday Americans.

Will supply chain issues hurt Democrats in the midterm elections?

While many less politically inclined citizens may be willing to overlook foreign policy issues or government spending excesses, they are much less likely to ignore their own inability to buy the food they want.

In a time where Biden’s approval is tanking and Democrats are panicking about the upcoming midterm elections, empty grocery store shelves are just another point in a long list of problems for the Biden administration.

Soros-Backed Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Indicted on 4 Federal Charges

Western Journal

immigration

On Thursday, a federal grand jury chose to indict Baltimore’s top prosecutor on four counts.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby now faces charges of perjury and “making false mortgage applications in the purchase of two Florida vacation homes,” the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland told The Associated Press.

The charges are related to Mosby’s alleged lies about “meeting qualifications for coronavirus-related distributions from a city retirement plan in 2020.”

Prosecutors say Mosby lied on multiple mortgage application forms when she attempted to buy homes in Kissimmee, Florida, and Long Boat Key, Florida.

Mosby first entered the spotlight in 2015 during the infamous Baltimore riots following the death of Freddie Gray.

The openly progressive prosecutor pursued charges against the six police officers involved in Gray’s death.

In the end, none of the officers were convicted.

Mosby has long been criticized for her progressive approach.

Under her tenure in Baltimore, which began in 2015, the number of murders, rapes, aggravated assaults, burglaries and robberies all rose, according to an Oct. 27, 2020, report from The Heritage Foundation.

Most recently, Mosby faced criticism in November for defending Joseph Rosenbaum, the convicted sex offender who was shot while allegedly attempting to murder Kyle Rittenhouse during the Kenosha, Wisconsin, racial justice riots of 2020.

This most recent federal indictment comes months after a federal investigation into her affairs was first announced.

Both Mosby and her husband Nick Mosby, the president of the Baltimore City Council, faced various accusations in March of 2021 related to their alleged illicit use of campaign funds.

The duo was purportedly using campaign funds to pay off personal legal fees and travel expenses.

A federal probe was issued into their financial dealings at the time.

The accusations and alleged discrepancies did not stop at the campaign funds, however.

An additional federal subpoena had been issued to two churches in order to investigate whether Nick Mosby had been making financial contributions to either institution.

Both Mosbys were reportedly issued a lien by the IRS following three full years of unpaid taxes on their property. It is unknown if that lien was paid.

The two perjury counts carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison and the two mortgage-related offenses could carry with them a maximum of 30 years in prison each, according to the AP.
