Liz Cheney is hopping mad. It seems that the Biden White House has told the J6 Inquisition that many of the records they are requesting are covered by Executive Privilege and the committee has agreed to stand down from those requests much to the chagrin to the nearly former Rep Liz Cheney. She is still bitter over the fact that she has no chance to be reelected to Congress.
Much of what the c committee has requested is just part of a fishing expedition like the Democrats have been trying to conduct for the past five years. They know they can’t pin the riot on him, but were hopeful they could find something else with which to hang him. They even tried to get transcripts of meetings with the National Security Council. What the heck does that have to do with January 6th?
The House select committee investigating January 6 has stood down on its requests for some documents from the Trump White House after negotiations with the Biden administration.
The White House said some of the records the House asked for potentially could concern state secrets or executive privilege because they were part of high-level national security deliberations, according to a letter from the White House counsel’s office released Tuesday. The House said it would “defer” its requests for those records.
Another set of the documents that the House dropped pursuing may not have been all that helpful anyway because while they were created on dates the committee asked for, they did not pertain to the panel’s investigation, the White House letter said. As a result, the committee won’t be getting hundreds of pages of National Security Council records at this time.
President Trump slammed the J6 Committee with the following statement:
Liz Cheney said:
“False. The January 6 Committee hasn’t dropped requests for any necessary records. In fact, we’re actively litigating to obtain White House records Trump is trying to conceal. We will not allow him to hide the truth about January 6th, or his conduct, from the American people.”
So, what is she saying exactly? Is she admitting that many of the records her committee requested were never really necessary? Sure sounds that way to me.
