THIS IS NOT A JOKE ! Liz Cheney tried to obtain campaign funds from a witness subpoenaed on January 6.

Liz Cheney tried to get campaign funds from a subpoenaed Jan. 6 witness.
RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who is vice chair of the illegitimate and authoritarian Jan. 6 Committee and who may well lose her congressional seat in the primaries, solicited campaign funds from a witness she subpoenaed to appear before this vile committee.
Former Trump campaign operations director Megan Small was subpoenaed by Cheney and the Jan. 6 Committee in September 2021. On Monday, she tweeted a letter from Cheney soliciting campaign money.
Without an ounce of detectable irony, Cheney is asking for large donations from subpoenaed witnesses, which the Committee on which she sits has threatened to turn over to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. While presenting himself as a conservative leader.
Federalist : “ [Cheney] threatened to refer these witnesses to the DOJ on criminal charges,” Small said. “So it can be said that campaign contributions are solicited not only from a witness, but also from someone who may or may not, at their discretion, be referred to the DOJ for criminal prosecution. »
President Donald Trump’s trade adviser, Peter Navarro, is the first of more than 100 witnesses subpoenaed to face the DOJ indictment unveiled Friday. In April, the House of Representatives voted to hold Navarro in contempt of Congress for his refusal to testify and turn over documents that Navarro argues are protected by executive privilege. The House also voted to hold in contempt a trio of other former Trump officials, including former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, the former deputy White House chief of staff for communications, Dan Scavino, and former adviser Steve Bannon.
Cheney is already obscenely well funded, with more than $10 million raised according to the FEC.
She is trying to get even more money from potential out-of-state donors. More disconcertingly, of a person she subpoenaed and threatened with criminal prosecution, which is certainly unethical.
