Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) explained a difference she’s noticed in how Trump-linked lawyers are dealing with the January 6 Committee in recent weeks.
Said Cheney: “Initially, their strategy in some cases appeared to be to deny and delay. Today, there appears to be a general recognition that the committee has established key facts, including that virtually everyone close to President Trump – his Justice Department officials, his White House advisers, his White House counsel, his campaign – all told him the 2020 election was not stolen… Now the argument seems to be that President Trump was manipulated by others outside the administration. That he was persuaded to ignore his closest advisers, and that he was incapable of telling right from wrong…”
But Cheney isn’t buying it: “President Trump is a 76-year old man. He is not an impressionable child. Just like everyone else in our country, he is responsible for his own actions and his own choices. As our investigation has shown, Donald Trump had access to more detailed and specific information showing that the election was not actually stolen than almost any other American. And he was told this over and over again. No rational or sane man in his position can disregard that information and reach the opposite conclusion. And Donald Trump cannot escape responsibility by being willfully blind.”Save to Favorites
