(FeaturedNews.com) – Former Rep. Liz Cheney recently responded to former President Donald Trump’s allegations that she had destroyed the House select committee’s evidence relating to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack. Trump has repeatedly claimed that the evidence was destroyed in an effort to block him from preparing his defense case in the federal election interference trial against him.
Trump has been indicted in this case by Department of Justice Special Counsel Jack Smith. The trial is set to start on March 4, 2024, in Washington, D.C. Despite this Trump has maintained that his actions preceding the Capitola attack are all covered by presidential immunity. Arguments regarding this are set to be heard on the 9th of January.
In a post on Truth Social on January 1st, Trump questioned why Cheney, who had lost her seat in Congress by the largest margin of any sitting Congress member in U.S. history had illegally gotten rid of the majority of evidence and items from the committee’s investigation. He added that this was an extreme act of sabotage and had made it impossible for his lawyers to properly prepare his defense in this case.
Trump proceeded to argue that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had rejected his offer for 10,000 soldiers who were going to be guarding the Capitol Building.
Cheney, who has been one of Trump’s biggest critics within the GOP, responded to these claims the next day arguing that the complete final report, as well as all of the documents relating to it, are available online for anyone who wants to view them.
