Cheney Helped Bury Exonerating Evidence During Jan. 6 Probe

Disgraced former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has been caught in the latest scandal surrounding the Democrat-run January 6 Select Committee — with reports indicating that she helped to bury evidence that would have exonerated former president and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

The committee was made up entirely of Democrats, though two members identified as Republicans — Cheney and former Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), both of whom were ousted from Congress after repeatedly siding with the Democrats and betraying their constituents.

As every member of the committee was staunchly anti-Trump, it is no surprise that the evidence produced by the committee was proven to be selectively chosen and manipulated to smear Trump and his supporters.

The latest revelation about the January 6 Select Committee, a previously “hidden” transcript obtained by The Federalist, details how the committee purposefully buried evidence confirming that Trump had pushed for 10,000 National Guard troops to be present to protect the Capitol building on the day of the protests.

“Cheney and her committee falsely claimed they had ‘no evidence’ to support Trump officials’ claims the White House had communicated its desire for 10,000 National Guard troops,” journalist Mollie Hemingway wrote. “In fact, an early transcribed interview conducted by the committee included precisely that evidence from a key source.”

“The interview, which Cheney attended and personally participated in, was suppressed from public release until now,” she added.

On Jan. 28, 2022, the committee had its first transcribed interview with Deputy Chief of Staff Anthony Ornato, where he “told Cheney and her investigators that he overheard White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows push Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser to request as many National Guard troops as she needed to protect the city,” according to Hemingway.

He went on to testify that Trump had suggesting bringing in 10,000 National Guard troops, with the then-president arguing that the troops would be required to ensure that the scheduled rallies and protests stay peaceful.

“Ornato also described White House frustration with Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller’s slow deployment of assistance on the afternoon of January 6, 2021,” Hemingway reported.

“Not only did the committee not accurately characterize the interview, they suppressed the transcript from public review,” she added. “On top of that, committee allies began publishing critical stories and even conspiracy theories about Ornato ahead of follow-up interviews with him. Ornato was a career Secret Service official who had been detailed to the security position in the White House.”

This news confirms previous claims from former Defense Secretary Chris Miller and Trump’s chief of staff, Kash Patel — who both called out Cheney for lying about the matter.

Cheney claimed in July 2022 that Miller had denied Trump’s claims about offering to bring in National Guard troops.

“His own acting secretary of defense says that’s not true. Chris Miller has testified publicly that Donald Trump never issued any order to deploy the Guard, to protect the Capitol,” she falsely claimed during a Fox News interview.

Miller disputed Cheney’s claims, declaring that Trump had made the offer.

“The president was doing exactly what I expect a commander-in-chief to do, any commander-in-chief to do,” he said. “He was looking at the broad threat against the United States and he brought this up on his own. We did not bring it up.”

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), chairman of the House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight that is currently investigating the January 6 Select Committee, spoke out about the news.

“The former J6 Select Committee apparently withheld Mr. Ornato’s critical witness testimony from the American people because it contradicted their pre-determined narrative,” Loudermilk said. “Mr. Ornato’s testimony proves what Mr. Meadows has said all along: President Trump did in fact offer 10,000 National Guard troops to secure the U.S. Capitol, which was turned down.”

“This is just one example of important information the former Select Committee hid from the public because it contradicted what they wanted the American people to believe,” he added. “And this is exactly why my investigation is committed to uncovering all the facts, no matter the outcome.”
