Liz Cheney Leaves Open Possibility of Making Criminal Referral Against Trump

Are the walls closing in on Donald Trump?

Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, who also serves on the House January 6th panel, says the committee is still considering making a criminal referral against Donald Trump.

Cheney made the comments during an interview with ABC News’s Jonathan Karl.

The Hill reports:

“Ultimately, the Justice Department will decide that,” Cheney responded. “I think we may well as a committee have a view on that. And if you just think about it from the perspective of, what kind of man knows that a mob is armed and sends the mob to attack the Capitol and further incites that mob when his own vice president is under threat, when the Congress is under threat?”

“It’s just very chilling. And I think certainly we will continue to present to the American people what we’ve found,” she added.

When pressed by Karl, Cheney said that it is possible the committee will officially make a criminal referral. She also noted that the Department of Justice (DOJ) doesn’t need to wait for the panel to make a decision in order for them to make its own criminal referral.

Last month, the committee’s chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), sparked criticism after saying that the panel would not make a criminal referral, claiming that it’s “not our job.” Thompson clarified soon after making his comments that the decision to make a referral remained a possibility.

Cheney’s comments follow ex-White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony last week to the panel about the former president’s behavior during the Capitol riot.

When this witch hunt is complete, the only ones responsible,will be piglosi, and the DC mayor bowser, for not accepting the national guard troops offered to them, by Trump. Trump didn’t do nothing to instigate, he just told it like it was.

Unthinkable! What a load. Lizzy and Kinzinger get on their knees every night and pray they get permission to hang president Trump in the city square. I know for a fact if these two RINOS, along with Romney and Sass are still Republicans by election day a lot of Republicans will be Independent. The fat lady and crying RINO are an embarrassment.

The acts of this committee are nothing more than another attempt to keep Trump out of politics and regain the Presidency. There is a good chance this attempt may be the one that helps the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) politicians from providing any more entertainment of this caliber in the future.

Cheney is a disease !!! The issue she keeps clinging to is debunked by S/S she will
not allow to testify to the lies Hutchinson told was also was 2nd hand. This claim is false
but tone deaf Cheney is plowing ahead with only 1 objective to get Trump especially now
that her career is going down the tube. She is a RINO disgrace. But her and her (sister)
Pelosi will swear to anything to trap Trump!!! Doesn’t anyone see this?????

Now we know what’s wrong with Cheney – she’s living in a pipe-dream. No way will Trump be convicted of a criminal crime for Jan 6. I think Cheney should cross-examine Pelosi & Browser for their reasons not to have extra police when it was known there was going to be a big rally – even Trump suggested it! Furthermore, Browser is a member of BLM & Pelosi is friends with Antifa & they were both there, but I haven’t seen anything written of about their attendance??? Even the FBI said they thought it was a planned event & no Trump supporters had guns except for possibly the Patriot Boys & they were arrested. So I wonder who planned this riot or whatever you want to call it? Seems more in live in BLM & Antifa than Trump Supporters!!

You’ve got to be joking! President Trump, the greatest President of our times, the law and order, Constitutional President. the one who is honest, clean and hard working and effective, challenged by Dick Cheney’s daughter of 911 fame or infamous for being part of the plot to kill 3000 people on that fateful day?

Is she somehow connected with a Dick Cheney who, along with a few corporations, used the Iraq war to enrich themselves at American taxpayers’ expense.
