Cheney says full Jan. 6 probe needed to remove ‘cancer’ from republic

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) warned at the start of Tuesday’s Jan. 6 committee hearing that a “cancer” will remain in America unless everyone involved in the planning of the Capitol attack is called to testify and held accountable.

If they don’t cooperate, the committee should “promptly” subpoena them, she said.

The opening statement from Cheney, one of two Republicans picked by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to serve on the special panel investigating the Jan. 6 riot, was aimed at pro-Trump mob that invaded the Capitol that day but also Trump allies like Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), who spoke to Trump as the siege was underway and have defended the former president’s actions egging on his supporters.

“The American people deserve the full and open testimony of every person with knowledge of the planning and preparation for January 6th. … We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the White House — every phone call, every conversation, every meeting leading up to, during and after the attack. Honorable men and women have an obligation to step forward,” Cheney said in her statement.

“If those responsible are not held accountable, and if Congress does not act responsibly, this will remain a cancer on our constitutional Republic, undermining the peaceful transfer of power at the heart of our democratic system.

Most Republicans want to move on from Jan. 6, and McCarthy and other GOP leaders held a news conference earlier Tuesday trying to cast blame on Pelosi for the security breach. But Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), the two Republicans on the special panel, have insisted that the violent insurrection of Jan. 6, and its causes, must be fully investigated.

“We must issue and enforce subpoenas promptly. We must get to the objective truth,” Cheney said. “We must overcome the many efforts we are already seeing to cover up and obscure the facts.”

  3. Ms. Cheney knows she is a pole dancer on a greased poll. She is going nowhere politically in the GOP. She joins the ranks of those elected officials who are only in it for the money and power, just like her inconsequential father.

  4. All Americans know the real cancer, is the liberal,socialist,marxist,dumbocraps,and rhinos. We intend to get rid of all of them in 2022. The election was stolen and everyone knows it. What is going to be really funny though, is all of this is going to come back to haunt,crazy,piglosi,the ripper, and we can arrest her for the capital riot, she was offered more security from president Trump, and she refused it,case closed, piglosi is to blame,lock her up and throw away the key. Piglosi’s karma has caught up with her corruption, impeach the radical,nut=case.

  5. Wow! I can’t believe Cheney recognized that there is cancer in politics. recognized herself as that cancer. Maybe we all should write her a letter on what an evil cancer she really is. Shumer, too. And Kinzenger. Many others, too. Tell them we are not going to stand for their illegal atrocities. Tell them the HOUSE is our House, not just theirs. They are supposed to answer to us. We do not believe what they are saying anymore. They all deserve to be indicted and spend the rest of their lives in prison, Gitmo more like it. They do not play fair!

    1. Schumer is a snake … a forked tongue snake, who will say anything and do anything to get his way. Has been a snake all his political life.

  6. Pelosi is behind all of this. She has brainwashed everyone she can. Pelosi is the ne who ordered the so called insurrection. She is the guilty one. All orders come from her and she is paid by the deep state to do it – or else! That’s why she is in such a hurry to murder Donald Trump, by illegal judicial tactics. I have seen the FBI files on her entire life and from a man who was arrested by the FBI (that the FBI is hiding this information now) and that man was in ANTIFA. He said it wasn’t Donald Trump. He said it was Pelosi who called the head person of ANTIFA and ordered him to have his people dress as Trump supporters and arrive in the Capitol on January 5, 2021, then on the 6th, when Trump was giving his speech, to have his people start rioting, maim people, destroy what they could and even murder people if they could. All this is in the secret FBI files. Pelosi MUST be put to death, legally, of course.

  7. These dumbocrap commies must think were a bunch of stupid morons. Crazy,piglosi,the ripper is the head of all things in the capital, that includes security. President Trump told her and the capital police more security would be needed for the 6th. She refused any more security, her karma is about to catch up with her, this incompetent,lying, crazy,old hag is the caused of what happened, and needs to be locked up.

  8. There is a cancer Cheney and it’s called you, the RINOs, and the democrats. Not a single one of you have one shred of decency, integrity, or self respect in yourselves or this country. You are by no means a Republican and fall right in with the gutter trash leftist ideals. You all need to be locked up in prison to rot. How utterly disgusting we have people like you trying to run this country!

  9. Cheney is not a person that needs to be on this committee. She already has her mind made up and will not change it even if the facts prove otherwise. She is a part of the “cancer” that plagues the government, a person that claims to be one thing and is another entirely. Eliminate ALL political parties entirely. Make them run on what they say they will do and their past record. They don’t do what they say kick them out. All future elections should have ALL the election funds from ALL sources put into one pot. Everyone gets an equal amount. Whatever is left over after the election goes toward the national debt. Eliminates part of the chance of someone or group buying a candidate.
