Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

As Jan. 6 Anniversary Looms, Rep. Liz Cheney Says Trump’s Inner Circle Tried to Get Him to Stop Riot

HeadlineJan 03, 2022

Back in the U.S., President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are set to speak at an event Thursday marking the first anniversary of the U.S. Capitol insurrection. On Sunday, Wyoming Congressmember Liz Cheney, the top Republican on the House committee investigating the insurrection, told ABC News former President Trump is “clearly unfit for future office” as she described his refusal to stop the violent mob attack on January 6.

Rep. Liz Cheney: “We know, as he was sitting there in the dining room next to the Oval Office, members of his staff were pleading with him to go on television to tell people to stop. We know Leader McCarthy was pleading with him to do that. We know members of his family, we know his daughter — we have firsthand testimony that his daughter Ivanka went in at least twice to ask him to please stop this violence.”
