The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection has identified a roughly eight-hour gap in official records of then-President Donald Trump’s phone calls as the violence unfolded and his supporters stormed the building.
White House call logs obtained so far by the House panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol do not list calls made by then-President Donald Trump as he watched the violence unfold on television.
Former Vice President, Casper native, and Natrona County High School graduate Dick Cheney appeared alongside his daughter, Liz on Thursday to acknowledge the one-year anniversary of the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol; an attack that left 5 people dead.
"You know, we had over 60 courts in this country that ruled against the claims the former president was making, and yet he rejected those rulings and attempted to overturn the will of the people," Cheney said.
"It appears that Fox News is giving Tucker Carlson a platform to spread the same type of lies that provoked violence on January 6," Cheney wrote on her personal Twitter page. "As Fox News knows, the election wasn't stolen and January 6 was not a 'false flag.'"
Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the Chairman of the January 6 Select Committee, along with Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) have announced that John Wood will serve as the Senior Investigative Counsel for the January 6 Select Committee.
