Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with host Martha Raddatz, where she did not hold back against the treasonous acts of FBI members. Cheney called the actions of FBI official Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page treasonous during her sit down on ABC.
Raddatz asked, “What’s your reaction to this back and forth?”
Cheney replied, “You know, what I see every day – I’m obviously in the House of Representatives, and what I see every day is a speaker of the House who is increasingly losing her grip on the leadership of her conference. And I think you’ve seen her being increasingly strident. You’re seeing her lashing out. And you’re looking at the Democrats who had put all their eggs in the basket of the Mueller report hoping that it would provide them evidence they needed to move to impeachment. It didn’t.
But so now what they’re doing is basically taking all the oxygen out of the room, refusing to do any of the things we were elected to do and instead continuing these attacks and partisan investigations, partisan issuance of subpoenas.”
Raddatz questioned, “And the president attacks back. Is that the right thing to do?”
Cheney responded, “Look, I think that, you know, what we have seen. … I think what is crucially important to remember here is that you had Strzok and Page, who were in charge of launching this investigation, and they were saying things like we must stop this president. We need an insurance policy against this president. That, in my view, when you have people that are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that, that sounds an awful lot like a coup. And it could well be treason. And I think that we need to know more. We need to know what was Jim Comey’s role in all this? These people reported to him. Andy McCabe, reported to him. What was Comey’s role in that? And that is what the attorney general is going to be focused on and should be.”
Cheney concluded in the end of the video, “Think about what happened. Think about the fact that we had people that are at the highest levels of our law enforcement in this nation saying that they were going to stop a duly elected president of the United States, saying they needed an insurance policy against him. That is something that simply cannot happen. We have to have confidence in our law enforcement. And the attorney general has got to get to the bottom of what happened, how it was that those people were allowed to misuse and abuse their power that way.”
