Trump Claims Liz Cheney And Jan. 6 Committee Members Should Be Imprisoned

Former Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney has dismissed Donald Trump’s recent social media suggestion that she and other members of the bipartisan House committee investigating the events of January 6th should be imprisoned.

In a recent social media post, the former president criticized Cheney and her colleagues. Additionally, he raised concerns about potential legal repercussions for Cassidy Hutchinson, a former member of his White House staff, due to inconsistencies and disputes in her testimony before the committee.

None of them, including Hutchinson, Cheney, or the members of the Jan. 6 committee, have faced any specific criminal accusations.

“She should be sent to jail along with the rest of the Unselect Committee,” Trump declared on Sunday via his social media platform, sharing articles that alleged the Jan. 6 committee had concealed evidence during their investigation.

In response to Trump’s threats, Cheney, a former member of Republican House leadership and now a vocal critic of Trump, responded with directness.


“Lying in all caps doesn’t make it true, Donald,” she wrote on X later on Sunday. “You are well aware that you and your lawyers have had the evidence for a long time.”

Last week, a report on the investigation into the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol and the preceding Jan. 6 committee was released by a Republican-led House committee, sparking a back-and-forth discussion.

According to the latest report, Hutchinson’s testimony regarding what she was informed about former President Trump’s actions on January 6, 2022, was partially contradicted by Trump’s driver on that day.

During her public committee testimony, Hutchinson recounted a conversation she had at the White House on January 6th. She spoke with Bobby Engel, a member of Trump’s security detail, and Tony Ornato, a White House staffer.

According to Hutchinson, she was informed on January 6th that Trump had become enraged and physically lunged at a Secret Service agent when he was informed that he could not go to the Capitol that day.

Trump vehemently denies any wrongdoing.

Last week, Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, the Democrat who previously headed the Jan. 6 committee, criticized the new report’s findings, calling the work led by Rep. Barry Loudermilk, a Georgia Republican, “dishonest.”

On Monday, Trump directly targeted Hutchinson, one of the key witnesses from the previous committee.

During an interview with Sebastian Gorka, his former White House adviser, Trump accused Hutchinson of fabricating her story and criticized the Jan. 6 committee for allegedly destroying evidence.

He asked, “What will happen to her?” when referring to Hutchinson.

“The entire narrative was completely fabricated,” Trump declared.

Hutchinson’s attorney, in response to last week’s GOP-led report, directed ABC News to a letter he had sent to Loudermilk in January. In the letter, he emphasized that Hutchinson has been and will continue to be truthful.

According to Ms. Hutchinson’s lawyer, she remains steadfast in her refusal to yield to the pressure campaign aimed at silencing her and manipulating her testimony, regardless of whether it is disguised as “oversight.”

With the 2024 general election gaining momentum, Donald Trump has been making waves with his recent campaign appearances.

He began the Saturday rally in Ohio by commending the individuals who were imprisoned for their involvement in the Capitol events on January 6th, referring to them as “hostages.”

Later in his speech, Trump, while discussing the importance of safeguarding American auto workers, issued a cautionary statement about the potential consequences if he is not reelected. This remark drew criticism from Biden, who expressed concern over the potential for a more significant impact on various aspects.

According to a spokesperson from the Biden campaign, Donald Trump’s response to his defeat in the election reflects his true character. The spokesperson stated, “This is who Donald Trump is: a loser who was defeated by over 7 million votes. Instead of trying to appeal to a broader audience, he chooses to intensify his rhetoric of political violence.”

In a recent social media post, Trump clarified his “bloodbath” warning, emphasizing that it was solely focused on the potential difficulties that auto workers might face if he is not re-elected and unable to implement tariffs on China from the White House.

In a bid to maintain control, Trump’s campaign seized the opportunity presented by the controversy. They sent a fundraising email on Monday, claiming that his political opponents and others had purposefully misquoted him in a vicious manner. The email further emphasized that this was part of a larger effort to suppress his message.

Throughout his campaign, Trump has consistently emphasized his support for his followers, even those who are alleged to have taken part in the events of January 6th. He has made it a central theme, promising to pardon individuals convicted for their involvement on that day if he is reelected as president.

Trump has consistently denied any intentional link.

In addition to his other campaign promises, he has also emphasized seeking justice for his supporters who feel targeted by the federal government due to their conservative beliefs. He aims to assist them in seeking retribution for what they perceive as unfair treatment.

“This is the ultimate showdown. It’s a fight to the finish. Either they come out on top or we emerge victorious,” he declared in the previous year.

In recent times, he has expressed the sentiment, stating, “We will ultimately achieve our revenge through our success.”

Criticizing Jews who back Democrats

In a separate interview with Gorka on Monday, Trump criticized Biden’s policies and suggested that the criticism he has been receiving over his use of the term “bloodbath” is a deliberate attempt by his political opponents to undermine his chances in the 2024 election. Trump baselessly claimed that his opponents have used the term more frequently, implying that they are trying to cheat.

“We’re being taken advantage of by Biden’s extremely foolish auto policy,” he exclaimed.

Biden’s campaign wasted no time criticizing that statement, asserting in their own response that “the only person who should feel ashamed in this situation is Donald Trump.”
