After hearing a series of controversial public testimony before the January 6 panel, Liz Cheney returns to Wyoming to debate Republican primary challengers.

Ms. Cheney will meet Donald Trump-backed adversary Harriet Hageman, among others, where she is likely to face criticism for explosive testimonials describing Mr Trump’s furious and violent behavior.

Even in Wyoming, political figures face death threats,” Dugas said.

Trump adviser Bannon asks for trial to be postponed

Donald Trump’s former adviser Steve Bannon has asked for his trial for contempt of Congress to be postponed by several months, arguing that publicity from the House’s select committee hearing on Jan. 6. could influence jurors.

“The impact on the public is not limited to the hearings themselves, but to the media coverage that magnifies the hearings. In Washington, DC, where the trial will take place — and where the charges cited in the Indictment took place — every major media outlet treated the hearings as a top news story,” the attorneys wrote in the court filing on Wednesday.

It said “any person charged with a crime will be guaranteed a fair trial”, and requested that his trial be moved from July 18 to October 25.

“Those broadcasts have been repackaged and rebroadcast in myriad forms, creating a saturation of the information resources available to residents of Washington, DC,” the filing said.

“Under the circumstances, continuation is warranted — to give the effects of the Select Committee hearing a chance to wear off.”

Speaking about the events of January 6, Sgt Gonell tweeted on Tuesday: “When? [Trump] tweeted about Pence, the fighting in the tunnel intensified. We stayed on the line hoping that the president would be on our side and help us. Mike Pence is lucky he’s still alive, he’s lucky we kept our oath and on the leash. Your boss tried to have you killed. To give evidence.”

DOJ Officials Felt ‘Blinded’ After Hutchinson’s Testimony

The testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, a former Trump White House aide, has exposed the growing rift between the Justice Department and congressional investigators.

Some Justice Department officials have reportedly New York Times report, felt caught off guard and stunned by the explosive testimony because the panel had not previously provided them with videos or transcripts of its taped interviews with committee members.

The surprising hearing came as a parallel investigation is underway by federal prosecutors to determine the extent of the former president’s involvement in the riots, and it will come together soon.

The committee members have also suggested that Attorney General Merrick B Garland is not acting fast enough in investigating clues. But senior Justice Department officials say committee members’ resistance to handing in transcripts has slowed their progress.

Liz Cheney: Republicans Can’t Be Loyal To Both Trump And The Constitution

In her speech that received a standing ovation from a roomful of GOP, Liz Cheney said Republicans must choose between being loyal to Donald Trump or the Constitution.

She further praised those who testified against Trump, especially young women, and White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson for her amazing testimony on Tuesday.

“And I’m incredibly moved by the young women I’ve met who have come forward to testify in the Jan. 6 committee,” she said.

Of Ms. Hutchinson, she said: “Her superiors — men many years older — some of them hide behind executive privilege, anonymity and intimidation. But her bravery and her patriotism yesterday were amazing to watch.”

“Little girls in this amazing country are seeing what it really means to love this country and what it really means to be a patriot.”

“I want to speak to every young girl watching tonight,” the congressman concluded. “The power is yours, and so is the responsibility. … These days, for the most part, men run the world — and things really aren’t going that well.”

Liz Cheney Compares Trump to ‘Domestic Threat’ in Ronald Reagan Library Speech

Liz Cheney called Donald Trump a “domestic threat” of the kind the US has never seen before in her speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Wednesday night.

“We are facing a domestic threat that we have never experienced before — and that is a former president trying to unravel the foundations of our constitutional republic,” said Ms. Cheney. “And he is helped by Republican leaders and elected officials who have willingly taken themselves hostage from this dangerous and irrational man.”

She began the speech by saying, “My fellow Americans, we are on the brink of an abyss and we must retreat.”

“As the full picture comes into view with the Jan. 6 commission, it has become apparent that the efforts Donald Trump oversaw and made were even more horrifying and threatening than we could have imagined,” said Ms. Cheney.
