Liz Cheney on investigating the 6 January events given a warning to her party. The Republican members of the House Committee told either they have to be loyal to the constitution or to Donald Trump. Both can not be done.
The Capitol attack was done by Trump supporters who wanted to stop the certification of Trump’s loss to Joe Biden. Trump accusing electoral fraud of his loss made his supporters go so violent that 5 people died in the riot and a mob possibly roamed around the capitol to find and kill lawmakers.
After Sunday’s discussion with Bennie Thompson, Cheney said ABCs that there’s no doubt about the negligence of duty around the event and the committee needs to see if they can enhance penalties for the same. Thompson said that Steve Bannon, Mark Medows, Scott Perry, and Jim Jordan might receive subpoenas for refusing the information request, only if they have the authority.
