Liz Cheney Says ‘Massive Criminal Investigation’ Underway Into Whether Trump Incited ‘Premeditated Violence’ At The Capitol

Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) claims there is a “massive criminal investigation underway” to determine if former President Trump is guilty of inciting “premeditated” violence on the Capitol.

Cheney made the startling assertion during an interview on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace.

The Republican lawmaker urged her colleagues in the Senate to consider the evidence that would be put forth during the upcoming impeachment trial.

“If I was in the Senate, I would listen to the evidence,” she said. “I think that is the role the Senate has as jurors.”

“I would also point out that the Senate trial is a snapshot. There’s a massive criminal investigation underway,” continued Cheney. “There will be a massive criminal investigation of everything that happened on Jan. 6 and in the days before.”

Liz Cheney – Trump Subject Of A ‘Massive Criminal Investigation’

Rep. Liz Cheney went on to suggest that the criminal investigation into Trump’s alleged role in the Capitol riots was to determine whether or not his actions were “premeditated.”

“People will want to know exactly what the president was doing,” Cheney said referencing a tweet in which the former President criticized vice president Mike Pence for not being courageous in combating the election results.

People “will want to know … whether that tweet, for example, was a premeditated effort to provoke violence,” she claimed.

Cheney’s rantings are nearly indiscernible from those of her colleague Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) who claims Trump should face premeditated murder charges for his alleged role in the riots.

“There’s information that some of the planning came out of individuals working in his campaign,” Waters said.

“As a matter of fact, he absolutely should be charged with premeditated murder because of the lives that were lost with this invasion, with this insurrection.”

Not an ounce of difference between what Waters has said and what Liz Cheney is trying to say with her criminal investigation comments about Trump.

Cheney Claims No Future For Trump In The Republican Party

Liz Cheney, during her interview with Wallace, went on to claim that Donald Trump has no future in the Republican party.

“Somebody who has provoked an attack on the United States Capitol to prevent the counting of electoral votes, which resulted in five people dying, who refused to stand up immediately when he was asked to stop the violence, that is a person who does not have a role as the leader of our party going forward,” she said.

“We should not be embracing the former president.”

The reality, however, suggests it is Cheney and the anti-Trump Republicans who are not being embraced by Republican voters.

One poll, released last month, shows a vast majority of Republicans do not hold Trump responsible for the Capitol riots, and a staggering 92 percent still see him as their preferred nominee in 2024.

Another poll shows an overwhelming percentage of Republican voters would follow him to a new political party if need be.

Cheney, one of the few Republicans to join the Democrats in their impeachment charade, was censured by the Wyoming Republican Party for her actions.

Former Clinton campaign adviser Dick Morris recently told Newsmax that she “has a snowball’s chance in hell of getting reelected.”

  • Actually, it was Maxine Waters who was inciting violence against Trump supporters day after day. Waters should at least be charged with the attempted murder of Rep. Steve Scalise (and other Republicans) who was shot by James Hodgkinson while playing baseball in a nearby park. Scalise almost died that day and if not for the Capitol police who stopped Hodgkinson before he could do more damage, more would have been killed.

    Maxine should definitely be charged with incitement to violence and as a n accomplice in the multiple assaults on Trump supporters and Republican Congressmen like Te Cruz and Rand Paul.

  • MZ Cheney is forgetting that her father and Bush sent thousands of our sons and daughters to fight in endless wars and many died, others maimed and no one would think of bringing criminal charges against them because some would say that these wars lasting up to 20 years was all about regime change and not about protecting American interests abroad or protection the men , women and children whose homes we invade causing a huge refugee crisis....those actions sure were agregious compared to these made up charges against, actually, this is a frame- up of a former President. Mz. Cheney like so many of these Never Trumpers are obviously motivated by hate stemming from the fact that Trump came to Washington and upset the apple cart. Perhaps, Mz. Cheney should take good care of her 'ticker' because if she is anything like her father, it is likely to malfunction in a big way.

  • Hey Liz your done. You jumped off too soon. Just go ahead and resign. Tell your old crooked, corrupt, rhino dad to kiss it. I guess you will inherit that corrupt Halliburton money of your dads. May you rot with the other rhinos
