Liz Cheney is obliterated in a GOP ad, saying she is just like Hilary Clinton. Chaney has been called a Pelosi pawn by Elisa Stefanik and has been against Donald Trump on many occasions.
According to Cheney’s website, she was elected in 2016 to Congress representing Wyoming and ran on a platform of conservative values to create more jobs, cut taxes, and cut regulations. All those things seem very conservative at face value, but actions are much more important than words.
Stefanik was on Fox News saying, “She (Nancy Pelosi) hesitated. Jim is exactly right that these critical questions deserve to be answered. The American people deserve to know what the speaker’s office understood and when and why the Capitol wasn’t secure. And when it comes to Liz Chaney, she is a Pelosi Republican, a Pelosi pawn. She does not represent the Republican conference or the Republican voters, or the American people. Republicans are focused on facts, and we are not focused on protecting the house speaker, a lame-duck speaker. We want truth, accountability, and we want to make sure that the U.S. Capitol is secure as the people’s house and that the violence on January 6th doesn’t ever happen again.”
Just like Hilary Clinton, and Hunter Biden for that matter, Chaney has ridden the coattails of her father, Dick Chaney, her whole political career, and it shows. Chaney spoke on the House floor back in May, saying, “God has blessed America, Mr. Speaker. But our freedom only survives if we protect it. Suppose we honor our oath, taken before God in this chamber, to support and defend the Constitution if we recognize threats to freedom when they arise. Today we face a threat America has never seen before. A former President who provoked a violent attack on this Capitol to steal the election has resumed his effort to convince Americans that the election was stolen from him. He risks inciting further violence. Millions of Americans have been misled by the former President. They have heard only his words, not the truth, as he continues to undermine our democratic process, sowing seeds of doubt about whether democracy works at all. I am a conservative Republican, and the most conservative of conservative principles is reverence for the rule of law. The electoral college has voted.”
That may have been in May, but the election audits still haven’t concluded, and many states have passed bills that have strengthened the security of the election process, so Trump was obviously onto something.
Fast forward to early July, when Pelosi names Chaney to the January 6th Commission. Pelosi favors politicians who are on their side and have already revealed their natural colors. Chaney has already informed Pelosi and the rest of America what she thinks of the January 6th Capitol riots and Trump, so it’s no surprise that Pelosi chose her for the position.
