Angry J6 Staffers Shine The Spotlight On Cheney After She Used Them To Make A WH Run
Liz Cheney wants in the White House, but she hasn't been quiet about it. Along the way she has even picked up liberal supporters and Democratic backers while she ran the January 6th Committee. Now, staffers who worked under Chaney are shining a spotlight on the RINO after they say she used them and the committee for political gain.
"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," one former committee staffer told the Washington Post. "But when [the committee] became a Cheney 2024 campaign, many of us became discouraged."
Fifteen former and current staffers spoke to the outlet anonymously, voicing concerns that the committee's final report will almost exclusively focus on former President Donald Trump while minimizing the committee's other findings unrelated to the former commander-in-chief.
The Jan. 6 committee's "Gold Team" focused on the former chief executive and its work will reportedly form the bulk on the final report. That prominence will potentially come at the expense of the "Blue Team," which looked into other areas, the outlet noted. The staffers, however, aren't merely concerned that their work will be omitted from the report, but that a Trump-centric document would ignore other actors and organizations, potentially leaving the door open for a repeat incident.
"Trump lit the fuse on all of this but he is kind of irrelevant now — it doesn't matter if he runs for president … Of course we want to stop Trump in any way possible but we'll still be facing these organized militia types or lone-wolf attackers in five to ten years," a current committee staffer said. "I don't think it's good for the committee or democracy at large if this entire final report is the case against Trump."
The outgoing Wyoming Republican lost her primary to a Trump-endorsed challenger and will leave elected office at the end of the term. She has vowed to dedicate herself to ensuring Trump never returns to public office and has emerged as a potential 2024 presidential candidate.
Cheney spokesman Jeremy Adler addressed the criticisms, telling the Post that "Donald Trump is the first president in American history to attempt to overturn an election and prevent the peaceful transfer of power. So, damn right Liz is 'prioritizing' understanding what he did and how he did it and ensuring it never happens again."
"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," Adler continued. "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."
And why did they expect her to? Cheney is political royalty, so to speak, who grew up under the guidance of her father—Republican Dick Cheney. She fooled them using that committee and I can't WAIT to see what happens when they rush to support her in 2024 and she hits them with the real deal.
