Trump Says Liz Cheney, Entire Jan. 6 Committee ‘Should Go To Jail’

Former President Donald Trump did not mince words in his fresh criticism of former Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney and the rest of the Select Committee on January 6, which she co-chaired with Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) over the weekend.

The House has launched a fresh investigation into the events of January 6, focusing this time on potential omissions and misrepresentations by the now-disbanded, Democrat-appointed, anti-Trump January 6 committee, leading the former president to issue a bold new statement on his Truth Social platform.

“She should go to jail along with the rest of the Unselect Committee!” he wrote in response to a report from Just the News.

Trump’s comment came in response to a Just the News report indicating that Cheney attended the deposition of a Secret Service agent who provided a firsthand account of Trump’s presence in the limousine leaving the Stop the Steal rally on January 6. Instead of heading to the Capitol as promised to his supporters, the limousine took Trump to the White House.

Former White House staffer Cassidy Hutchinson, who was brought before the House Jan. 6 select committee at the behest of Cheney to speak out against Trump, alleged that she overheard Secret Service agents discussing an altercation involving Trump attempting to seize control of the presidential limousine’s steering wheel from the back seat.

“The driver testified that he specifically refuted the version of events as recounted by Hutchinson,” the report released by Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., chair of the House Administration subcommittee on Jan. 6, noted. “The driver of the SUV testified that he ‘did not see him reach [redacted]. [President Trump] never grabbed the steering wheel.

“I didn’t see him, you know, lunge to try to get into the front seat at all,’” the agent testified, refuting Hutchinson’s account.

“Cassidy’s testimony was already on shaky ground, as the report was second-hand knowledge. Called hearsay, it’s usually not permitted in court proceedings as evidence,” Newsmax reported.

However, Democrats and two anti-Trump members on the committee, Cheney and former Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., used it nonetheless. Both were voted out of office as the committee’s activities ceased when Republicans regained the House majority.

Earlier this month, Trump declared vindication following the release of new evidence by Congress that undermined two sensational claims made by Democrats during the Jan. 6 investigation. The claims included the allegation made by Hutchinson regarding the Secret Service and the other that he never proposed deploying National Guard troops for additional protection before the fateful event.

“These were made-up, fabricated stories,” Trump told Just the News.

Trump spoke a few hours after the House Administration Oversight Subcommittee, presided over by Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., released transcripts and other evidence in an interim report concluding that the Democrat-run House Select Committee on Jan. 6 withheld from the public evidence that contradicted its conclusions.

“Well, the story was false and so ridiculous that I would grab these young, strong guys,” Trump told Just the News’ John Solomon.

He added that the story could never have been true because there were protective barriers inside the presidential SUV limo that prevented him from reaching the driver’s seat.
