Representative Liz Cheney said Sunday on "Face the Nation" that she expects former President Trump to "make the same false claims about the election that he knows to be false and the same false claims about the election that he knows caused violence on January 6" at his event on the one-year anniversary of the attack on the U.S. Capitol. "But again, he knows these claims caused violence and we've seen now people who were in the Capitol, people who've been arrested because of their activities on that day, they themselves have told us in court filings, they've told us on social media, we've seen it on videos; that they were here because Donald Trump told them to be here," Cheney said. "And so, he's doing this press conference on the 6th. Again, if he makes those same claims, he's doing it with complete understanding and knowledge of what those claims have caused in the past." Cheney said Americans need to "understand the danger of President Trump and the danger that he posed on that day." "He could have simply walked a few feet to the White House briefing room, he could have gone immediately on live television and asked his supporters to stop what was happening, ask them to go home," Cheney said. "He failed to do that. He instead, we know, had the motivation, at the same time, the violent assault was happening, he's watching television, he's also calling at least one senator urging delay of the electoral vote. So, this is a man who has demonstrated that he is at war with the rule of law. He's demonstrated that he's willing to blow through every guardrail of democracy, and he can never be anywhere near the Oval Office again. He's demonstrated a complete lack of fitness for office. I think one of the really important things that our committee has to do is lay these facts out for the American people so that they really have a sense of the truth of what happened that day." Cheney is the vice chair of the House January 6 select committee, which was created by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to investigate what happened that day. Cheney is one of only two Republicans on the committee, and while House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has so far mainly refused to work with the committee, she said he has, "on a couple of occasions, said that he's willing to come talk to the committee." But the select committee faces an uncertain future if Republicans take control of the House in the November midterm elections. Cheney herself is facing a Trump-backed primary challenger in her home state of Wyoming and the state GOP has voted to no longer recognize her. "I think the country needs a strong Republican Party going forward, but our party has to choose," she said. "We can either be loyal to Donald Trump or we can be loyal to the Constitution, but we cannot be both. And right now, there are far too many Republicans who are trying to enable the former president, embrace the former president. Look the other way and hope that the former president goes away, trying to obstruct the activities of this committee. But we won't be deterred. At the end of the day, the facts matter, and the truth matters." Representative Adam Schiff, a Democrat on the committee, told "Face the Nation" on Sunday he expected public hearings to begin in the coming weeks. "And what we expect to do is lay out what we've been learning for the American people," Schiff said. "There were several lines of effort to overturn the election. There was, of course, the lies being promulgated by the former president, but also efforts with local elections officials and state legislators, efforts at the Justice Department and of course, the violent attack on January 6. And we hope to be able to tell the story to the country so that they understand it isn't just about that one day, January 6, but all that led up to it. Wha . . . read the full article here.
