Liz Cheney planted her flag in the fight to destroy Donald Trump.
But at the end of the day Cheney ended up completely humiliated.
Liz Cheney just waved the white flag of surrender, and you won’t believe what happened next.
Cheney’s subservience to Nancy Pelosi by working on the January 6 committee and launching a kamikaze mission to end Donald Trump’s career backfired spectacularly on Cheney.
Wyoming voters sent Cheney packing with a 37-point landslide loss in her primary election.
That left Cheney with just the January 6 committee.
And this past October the committee continued their harassment and politically motivated persecution of Donald Trump.
The subpoena was obviously unconstitutional and the Congress voting to compel President Trump to testify and produce documents ran afoul of the Constitution’s separation of powers.
Trump promised to contest the unconstitutional subpoena and just before New Year’s Liz Cheney and Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson tapped out.
In a letter to Trump, Chairman Thomas announced the committee withdrew the subpoena.
Chairman Thompson claimed it was because the committee closed up shop.
“As you may know, the Select Committee has concluded its hearings, released its final report and will very soon reach its end. In light of the imminent end of our investigation, the Select Committee can no longer pursue the specific information covered by the subpoena,” Committee Chairman Thompson wrote.
“Therefore, through this letter, I hereby formally withdraw the subpoena issued to former President Trump, and notify you that he is no longer obligated to comply or produce records in response to said subpoena,” Chairman Thompson’s letter added. “We appreciate your engagement with the Select Committee on this matter.”
Trump celebrated the committee giving up as Cheney, Thompson and the other members realized that the court would rule to toss their subpoena.
“Was just advised that the Unselect Committee of political Thugs has withdrawn the Subpoena of me concerning the January 6th Protest of the CROOKED 2020 Presidential Election. They probably did so because they knew I did nothing wrong, or they were about to lose in Court. Perhaps the FBI’s involvement in RIGGING the Election played into their decision. In any event, the Subpoena is DEAD!” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
Trump’s attorney Harmeet Dhillon also spiked the football on social media boasting that the committee backed down in the face of defeat.
“After my firm filed suit on separation of powers grounds to block January 6 House Select Committee’s illegitimate subpoena to President Trump over his activities while president — the committee waved the white flag & withdrew subpoena,” Dhillon posted.
“We were confident of victory,” Dhillon added that “in court, given precedent & refusal of prior presidents to testify in Congress. J6 committee wasted millions for a purely political witch-hunt, total abuse of process & power serving no legitimate legislative purpose.”
The vote to subpoena Trump was nothing more than an election year stunt.
Committee members hoped the vote to subpoena Trump would serve as an “October Surprise” since it took place about three weeks before the midterm.
The January 6 committee was nothing more than a political witch hunt from the start.
And by formally withdrawing their subpoena without challenging Trump in court the committee members all but confessed to running a scam to help Democrats in the midterm elections.
