Liz Cheney uses the January 6 committee for political retaliation

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) appears to have used the Jan. 6 committee as a political weapon against her main opponent.

It’s no secret that Liz Cheney’s political career as an establishment Republican fell into oblivion when she sided with the Democrats in their Jan. 6 witch hunt. Since then, his main opponent, Harriet Hageman, has beaten Cheney in the polls and now leads by 30 points. After a dismal first hearing for the Jan. 6 committee that drew just 19 million viewers across the United States, Liz Cheney has now subpoenaed former Donald Trump campaign manager William Stepien, who stands also happens to be Hageman’s campaign adviser.

According the hillStepien appeared before the committee last November and was a key instigator of former President Trump’s “Stop the Steal” campaign:

Stepien allegedly “oversaw the conversion” as part of Trump’s campaign around “Stop the Steal” messaging and associated fundraising, the committee said at the time of his subpoena.

This message “included the promotion of certain false claims related to voting machines despite an internal campaign memo in which campaign staff determined that these claims were false,” the committee added.

Former President Trump held a rally for Hageman in late May where he called Cheney a “stab in the back” RINO.

β€œWorse than the terrible Democrats are the RINO Republicans helping them do their thing,” Trump said. “And there’s no RINO in America who has set her sights on the radical left more than Liz Cheney.”

Trump further described Cheney as “a lapdog for Pelosi and a human soundbite machine for CNN and MSDNC.”

“She went crazy,” the former president said. “Now I get it. I’ve been hearing these stories for years. Now I get it. She’s gone absolutely crazy.

Unless Liz Cheney and the committee unveil a surprise bombshell at the next hearing, Stepien’s subpoena is unlikely to have any effect on her primary campaign against Hageman, given that few Americans are tuning in. on the show. Some Democrats in vulnerable neighborhoods expressed skepticism behind closed doors, according to a recent report by Axios.

“I think they’re incredibly important, but I wouldn’t call them election-critical,” Rep. Susan Wild (D-PA) said of the hearings.

An unnamed Democrat in a swing district simply said “no” when asked if Jan. 6 should be an election issue, though the Democrat hoped the hearings would provide “a lot of powerful information” or a moment of ” crap”.
