Did Cheney Use The January 6th Committee Against Hageman?
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) might have used the January 6 committee as a political weapon against one of her primary opponents, Harriet Hageman
Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney’s political career has taken a hard hit when she decided to work with Democrats in their January 6 committee.
Harriet Hageman appears to have the lead over Liz and all other candidates in the race for the U.S. house seat, representing Wyoming.
Liz Cheney has now subpoenaed former Donald Trump campaign manager William Stepien, who also just so happens to be Hageman’s campaign adviser.
According to The Hill, Stepien appeared before the committee last November and was a primary mover in former President Trump’s “Stop the Steal” campaign:
The allegation is that Stepien “supervised the conversion” within Trump’s campaign around “Stop the Steal” messaging.
That messaging 'included the promotion of certain false claims related to voting machines despite an internal campaign memo in which campaign staff determined such claims were false,' the committee added.
At his recent Wyoming rally, President Trump held a rally for Hageman in late May where he referred to Cheney as a “backstabbing” RINO.
'Worse than the terrible Democrats are the backstabbing RINO Republicans that are helping them do their act,' Trump said. 'And there is no RINO in America who has thrown in her lot with the radical left more than Liz Cheney.'
Later, Trump called Cheney a “lapdog for Pelosi and a human soundbite machine for CNN and MSDNC.”
'She has gone crazy,' the former president said. 'Now I get it. I’ve been hearing these stories for years. Now I get it. She’s gone totally crazy.'
Though it is unlikely the Stepien subpoena will have any effect on her primary campaign against Hageman. The televised January 6th hears have few viewers. Almost none in Wyoming.
