Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has apparently picked the hill where she wants her political career to die by defending the House Select Committee on Jan. 6. Cheney confirmed this by taking for Twitter Monday to harangue Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) for criticizing the Committee.

Cheney’s rather sarcastic tweet read: “Hey @SenTomCotton – you heard on @hughhewitt criticizing the Jan 6 hearings. So you said the weirdest thing; you admitted you haven’t watched any of them Here’s a tip: looking at them before making a judgment is more in line with ‘Anglo-American jurisprudence’.”

Cotton’s critique of Cheney’s beloved January 6 committee

Monday morning, Cotton was interviewed by a conservative radio talk show host Hughes Hewitt. Cotton pointed out some glaring facts about the Committee. The most obvious being that the witnesses are not cross-examined, so only one version of what happened on January 6, 2021 is presented.

Cotton said, “I think what you’ve seen over the past few weeks is why Anglo-American jurisprudence going back centuries has concluded that adversarial inquiry and cross-examination is the best way to get the truth. He added: “There is no one on this committee who has a view different from Nancy Pelosi, or even a view that resembles, we should look at the full context of all these statements, all these recordings, of this whole video.”

Cotton confessed that he didn’t watch any of the hearings saying, “I didn’t watch that hearing, and I didn’t watch any of the hearings, so I didn’t see any out of context that I see an excerpt here or there on the news. This is clearly what irritated Cheney.

Cotton did not back down from his assessment of what does or does not happen during the hearing process. He said, “They never released the full transcripts. They never released the full videos. We have no idea what these witnesses said in the full context of their testimony. And even if we did, there were no lawyers in the room probing the other way.

Issues to come mid-term

In May, Cheney traveled back to Wyoming to seek re-election. She was also able to get an idea of ​​the exact position of the head of Wyoming voters. They let him know in no uncertain terms.

Cheney trails her main opponent, lawyer Harriet Hageman by a resounding 30 points. Hageman was also endorsed by former President Donald Trump. Not only did his eligibility take a hit, but Cheney’s sympathy plummeted among conservative voters in Wyoming.

A polling group called Cygnal asked Wyoming voters their opinion of Cheney. It wasn’t pretty. Overall, 62% of primary voters held an unfavorable opinion of Cheney. Among Republicans, 76% said they had an unfavorable opinion, 21% in favor.

Those who called themselves “very conservative” are not fans of Liz Cheney. Among these voters, 84% had an unfavorable opinion, only 14% had a favorable opinion. Good news for Cheney though, among Democrats and Independents she had a 47% favorable rating and only 51% unfavorable.

Bottom line, Cheney, in a state that got 70% for Donald Trump in 2020, will now have to rely on Democrats and a handful of independents for re-election.

If re-election fails…

No worries though. Liz Cheney has options. If the good folks in Wyoming tell her to take a hike, she might just be considering her own run for the White House. A comedic discussion took place recently between Cheney and CNN host Jake Tapper.

Tapper asked Cheney if she would be “willing to run for president to try and stop” the “bad guy” Donald Trump. Apparently, Cheney has yet to see the signal from the bat in the sky urging him to run. Cheney, who lost her job as GOP conference chair last year due to her bigoted pursuit of Trump, told Tapper, “At this point, I haven’t made a decision for 2024,” Cheney replied. “I will make a decision for 2024 later.”

The plan for Cheney must be, after voters in Wyoming kick her off, she will have plenty of time to plan her presidential run and her triumphant return to Washington.

What do you think of Cheney’s uncertain political future? Has she definitely cut ties with the conservatives?
