TRUTH COMES OUT: Liz Cheney covered up “exonerating evidence” that Trump pushed for national guard protection on January 6
03/13/2024 // Cassie B. // Views

Former Representative Liz Cheney has responded angrily to a report by Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist accusing her and the January 6 committee of suppressing evidence that could have exonerated former President Donald Trump. It showed that he pushed for 10,000 troops from the national guard to protect the Capitol the day the riot took place.

Hemingway’s exclusive report showed how Cheney and the committee falsely claimed there was no evidence to support claims made by Trump officials that they requested the troops, yet an early interview they conducted showed that was exactly what happened. Cheney personally attended this interview and took part in it, yet it mysteriously disappeared from the supporting documentation.

The interview in question was conducted on January 28, 2022, and involved Deputy Chief of Staff Anthony Ornato. He told Cheney and the others present that he overheard the White House Chief of Staff at the time, Mark Meadows, press D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser to enlist the services of the troops to protect her city. In addition, he testified that Trump thought 10,000 troops would be needed to help keep the peace during the protests and rallies scheduled for the day.

Moreover, Ornato reported that the White House was frustrated by the slow deployment of assistance on the day by Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller.

His testimony matched that provided by the former Chief of Staff to the Acting Secretary of Defense, Kash Patel, who maintains that he was present when Trump authorized the 10,000 guards ahead of January 6. In his own piece for The Federalist, he said that several other officials were also present and testified under oath that he did make the request and that Mayor Bowser and the Capitol Police were informed of it.

Patel believes that because Ornato had an apolitical career with the Secret Service spanning decades, the committee couldn’t believably label him a “Trump loyalist” so they instead chose to suppress his testimony.

In addition to lying about the existence of the interview, Cheney and her committee took steps to ensure the transcript would not be viewable by the public. They also launched a campaign to damage the reputation of Ornato before they conducted follow-up interviews with him.

In fact, the Government Publishing Office website that Cheney often points critics of her investigation to actually contains fewer than half of the interviews the committee conducted. They carried out a thousand interviews, and it is quite possible that many of the other transcripts that are hidden contain further information that could exonerate Trump that the committee doesn’t want people to see.

The Chairman of the House Administration’s Subcommittee on Oversight, Rep. Barry Loudermilk, said: “The former J6 Select Committee apparently withheld Mr. Ornato’s critical witness testimony from the American people because it contradicted their pre-determined narrative. 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.”

Cheney spars with critics on social media

Conservative Commentator Mark Levin took Cheney to task on X, writing: "Sleazy Liz Cheney needs to receive some of the Stalinist medicine she introduced into the body politick against scores of patriotic Americans -- that is, she needs to be compelled to testify under oath about, among other things, what knowledge she may have about: possible witness tampering, censorship of exculpatory information and testimony, the destruction of committee evidence and data, etc."

Cheney became very defensive, responding to Levin by accusing him of “spreading BS” and calling Hemingway, a credible journalist, a “bozo.” This prompted him to call her a “pathetic disgrace and demagogue.”

Sparring aside, the fact remains that the committee deceived Americans about what happened on January 6. Patel wrote: “The greatest con job ever to happen in American politics is the false Jan. 6 “insurrection” narrative. The singular mission of this narrative is to stop Donald Trump from ever setting foot in the Oval Office again.”
