GOP Leader Liz Cheney Fires Shots At Donald Trump For Capitol Building Attack

Liz Cheney Criticizes Donald Trump For Capitol Building Attack

The attack on the Capitol building on January 6th, 2020 played a big role in the second impeachment of Donald Trump. Trump was subsequently removed from Twitter and Facebook for instigating violence. Fellow Republican Liz Cheney criticized Trump for not doing anything to stop the attack and also condemned the fact that he was busy challenging the counting of votes instead of stopping the riot. Cheney said, “I watched while the attack was underway– understood very clearly what he did on January 6, what he failed to do on January 6. Instead of stopping the attack while it was underway, he was busy calling up senators trying to get them to delay the count. So, there was no calculation.”

Liz Cheney Doesn’t Accept Trump’s Narrative Of Rigged Election

Even after one year, Donald Trump is conducting rallies and talks wherein he is calling the 2020 Presidential election rigged. However, Cheney thinks it is important to point out that the election was conducted in a free and fair manner. As per her, keeping silence on the matter only encourages people like Trump to spread more misinformation. She said, “When you look at the spread of these mistruths and the spread of the disinformation, you know, silence enables it. Silence enables the liar. And silence helps it to spread. So the first thing you have to do is say, “No. I’m not going to accept that we’re gonna live in a post-truth world.”
