Liz Cheney: It Is Possible January 6 Committee will Make Criminal Referral Against Trump (VIDEO)

Toxic RINO January 6 Committee vice chair Liz Cheney told ABC’s Jon Karl that the January 6 panel may make multiple criminal referrals to the Justice Department.

“Ultimately the Justice Department will decide that,” Cheney said trying to fight back against accusations that the J6 Committee is acting more like prosecutors rather than a legislative body.

“What kind of man knows that a mob is armed and sends the mob to attack the Capitol and further incites that mob when his own vice president is under threat, when the Congress is under threat?” Cheney said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” using Cassidy Hutchinson’s false testimony to attack Trump.

“I have greater concern about what it would mean if people weren’t held accountable for what’s happened here,” Cheney added. “I think it’s a much graver constitutional threat if a president can engage in these kinds of activities and the majority of the president’s party looks away or we as a country decide, you know, we’re not actually going to take our constitutional obligation seriously.”

When asked if the January 6 Committee will possibly criminally refer Trump to the DOJ, Cheney responded in the affirmative.

“Yes,” Cheney said. “The Justice Department doesn’t have to wait for the Committee to make the criminal referral – there could be more than one criminal referral.”


Jon Karl played a previous clip of Cheney saying, ‘Trump can never be anywhere near the Oval Office again’ and asked her if her goal is to keep Trump from getting back into the White House.

“There’s no question: A man as dangerous as Donald Trump can absolutely never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again,” Cheney said.

Cheney pushed back on Jon Karl and said the goal of the January 6 hearings is to “make sure that the American people understand what happened.”

Sure it is.


When asked about Cheney’s comments on ABC’s “This Week” on the committee’s possible criminal referrals — and prosecution of Trump, Adam Schiff told host Margaret Brennan that he agreed with Cheney.
