‘Despicable and Disgraceful’: Cheney Slams McCarthy Over Jan. 6 Investigation, Says He Should Not Be House Speaker
Mediaite ^ | 21 July 2021 | Aidan McLaughlin

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) tore into House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in a press conference Wednesday, calling his handling of the proposed Jan. 6 investigation “despicable and disgraceful.”

-snip-

McCarthy responded to Pelosi blocking the two members of Congress — Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jim Banks (R-IN) — by pulling all five Republicans he had nominated.

Cheney, who was nominated by Pelosi to serve on the committee, said she agreed with the move from the Democratic leader.

“January 6th was the worst attack on this Capitol since 1814. It was an attack on our Constitution,” Cheney said. She added that the two Republicans rejected by Pelosi included “one who may be a material witness to events that led to that day” and another “who disqualified himself by his comments… demonstration he’s not taking this seriously.”

The Wyoming Republican, who was one of few members of the GOP to vote for former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment, also slammed McCarthy for blocking the originally proposed bipartisan commission:

We supported what would have been the very best option, which was a bipartisan, independent commission. The minority leader opposed that. He lobbied against it in the Senate and the Senate blocked it. The American people deserve to know what happened. The people who did this must be held accountable. There must be an investigation that is nonpartisan, that is sober, that is serious, that gets to facts where ever they may lead. At every opportunity, the minority leader has attempted to prevent the American people from understanding what happened, to block this investigation.”

“This investigation must go forward,” she continued. “The idea that anybody would be playing politics with an attack on the United States Capitol is despicable and disgraceful.”

I disagree with her about everything else, but I agree that McCarthy should not be Speaker.

Cheney supports a kangaroo court and Soviet style justice.

She also needs to be recalled by her state.

Oh good God.

Dies this woman know nothing about TRUE attacks on the Capitol?

How about the PRs in the ‘50s?

How about the bombing inside in the ‘80s?

I guess they were not as bad as a bunch of revelers milling around taking pix.

It’s her last dance. Whoever Trump endorses in Wyoming should clean her clock in the Primaries.

Why is she still a Republican? Rhetorical question. She never has been. She’s a mole. Another leftwing thug pretending to be in opposition to the evil totalitarian left while actually being a card carrying member. A traitor destined for the lowest pit of hell.

McCarthy should fill out the paperwork to have her membership in the republican party revoked.

That doesn’t matter. Remember, as we were so taught in the past election, it’s who counts the vote that matters. She ain’t gone yet..
