If former Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is as conservative or as Republican as she claims… she certain has a humorous manner of displaying it.
(She was by no means going to be embraced by Democrats en masse resulting from each the “R” and the final title it’s subsequent to.)
The most recent, and most exhausting, instance of Cheney’s continued descent into being a girl with out a political social gathering got here on Friday, when the previous vice chair of the January 6 Committee couldn’t assist however remark concerning the bombshell video dump spearheaded by the brand new Speaker of the Home, Mike Johnson.
And in traditional Cheney vogue, she did it with some snide subtext:

Right here’s some January sixth video for you.

“Right here’s some January sixth video for you,” Cheney stated in her X put up, with the comment clearly suggesting that Johnson’s bombshell revelation was extra whimper than a bang.
Many conservatives and Republicans (and individuals who don’t simply blindly drink the Democrat Kool-Support) have typically mentioned the non-zero likelihood that one thing strange or amiss about the whole January 6 Capitol incursion. The prevailing principle is that the incursion was largely sparked and instigated by federal agent vegetation.
Given how little transparency was provided from Cheney and her Jan. 6 Committee cohorts, it’s little shock that there was vested curiosity on this new video dump.
Cheney’s not-so-subtle jab at individuals who care about Jan. 6 transparency didn’t go unnoticed, as Utah Sen. Mike Lee swiftly slammed Cheney on X.
“Liz, we’ve seen footage like that one million occasions,” Lee posted. “You made certain we noticed that — and nothing else. It’s the opposite stuff — what you intentionally hid from us — that we discover so upsetting. Good strive.
“P.S. What number of of those guys are feds? (As if you happen to’d ever inform us).”
Cheney, to her minimal credit score, just isn’t one to again down from a verbal altercation and responded to Lee.

“Hey @BasedMikeLee – heads up,” Cheney stated in her response put up. “A nutball conspiracy theorist seems to be posting out of your account.”
Lee, searching for the proverbial knockout shot, responded to Cheney’s denigrating put up with a easy query that he knew she couldn’t reply:

“Shouldn’t the J6 committee have been demanding solutions to this query?” Lee posted, linking to an unique from the New York Post that cited an ex-official who claimed that the “FBI misplaced depend of what number of paid informants” had been on the Capitol on Jan. 6, and required an “audit” to get the ultimate tally.
Look, if you wish to argue that this line of questioning is “conspiratorial” or one thing solely “nutballs” would indulge — fantastic, have at it.
That doesn’t change the truth that Lee’s query — the exact same one so many Individuals have — stays unanswered.
