On Sunday, Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) appeared on CBS’s “Face The Country” to once again criticize President Trump.
Liz still can’t stop worrying about the presidency, believing that the 2020 election won’t be “stolen” from President Trump, despite the fact that there has never been a proper investigation and states are already finding inconsistencies.
“Unfortunately, the former president seemed to be bragging about the size of the audience on January 6 last night,” host Margaret Brennan said. “At Mar-a-Lago, he gave a speech. He was the featured speaker at a Republican National Committee fundraiser. According to stories in the New York Times and the Washington Post, he spoke about Vice President Pence not doing enough to avoid the election certification.
“The former president is using words that he knows sparked violence on January 6th. We need to be focused on the future as a party,” Cheney added. “Our emphasis should be on embracing the Constitution rather than insurgency. I believe it is important for people to understand that the rule of law, or the legal process, is a central part of the Constitution and of who we are as Americans. The election was not rigged in any way. There was a legal system in place.”
“You aren’t protecting the Constitution if you threaten the legal process and the rule of law,” she said. “You’ve declared war on the Constitution. We must embrace the Constitution and propose constructive solutions.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has been accused of sexual misconduct, and Brennan asked Cheney if she thinks he should resign.
The allegations are definitely sickening to me as a mother of daughters,” Cheney said. “An ethics review is underway, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said. Criminal proceedings are still ongoing, and I’m not going to say anything further about that publicly right now.”
