According to one U.S. representative, former President Donald Trump is currently being investigated.
U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) revealed over the weekend that a “massive criminal investigation” is currently taking place in order to determine if Trump is responsible for the Capitol riot that took place on January 6th, Breitbart reports.
“We’ve never seen that kind of assault by a president . . .”
Cheney’s revelation came during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”
“There’s a massive criminal investigation underway,” Cheney said. “There will be a massive criminal investigation of everything that happened on Jan. 6 and in the days before.”
People will want to know exactly what the president was doing. They will want to know, for example, if the tweet [Trump] sent out calling Vice President Pence a coward while the attack was underway, whether that tweet, for example, was a premeditated effort to provoke violence. There are a lot of questions that have to be answered, and there will be many, many criminal investigations looking at every aspect of this and everyone who was involved as there should be.
“We’ve never seen that kind of assault by a president of the United States on another branch of government, and that can never happen again,” Cheney concluded.
The likelihood is that criminal charges against former president Trump have about as little chance of succeeding as the Senate impeachment trial that is taking place this week. But, as we know, that isn’t going to stop the left.
They’ve been going after Trump since before he even took office, and they certainly aren’t going to suddenly stop now.
Unfortunately for them, Trump isn’t going anywhere. But, the same can’t be said for Cheney.
Yes, Cheney did survive a vote to remove her from her post atop the Republican conference, after she voted in favor of impeaching Trump. But, as one political commentator recently pointed out, there is a significant difference between those voters and the people of Wyoming.
“While she did win the vote in the House because it was basically set up by the leadership and she’s kind of inherited royalty among Republicans,” said Dick Morris, the former Bill Clinton advisor. “But, in fact, there’s some polling in Wyoming [that suggests that] she has a 13% job approval among Republicans.”
Cheney is up for reelection in 2022, and with numbers like that she is likely a goner.
