On Saturday, former Republican House chair Liz Cheney accused Elise Stefanik of removing a news release from 2021 that denounced the January 6th Capitol stormers.
This is what @EliseStefanik said, in an unusual moment of candour, about the January 6 assault on our Capitol,” Cheney tweeted at Stefanik on Tuesday, who is an ally of former President Donald Trump. Someday she’ll have to explain her wild descent into lunacy. Our youngsters should be educated about our history.
Stefanik demanded the prosecution of those responsible for the “violence and destruction” that occurred on January 6 in a news release she issued in 2021.
Since then, Stefanik has questioned the validity of legal action against those involved in the Capitol attack and diminished the attack’s impact. If Trump were to win the presidency, she would allegedly be chosen as his vice president.
Stefanik has characterised the attack that occurred on January 6 as “illegitimate and unconstitutional,” and Cheney served as vice chair of the House Select Committee investigating the incident. In 2022, Cheney was defeated in the primary for her Montana House seat after being the target of Trump’s wrath.
The relevant comment had been removed from Stefanik’s official House website, as Cheney pointed out once again in his Saturday tweet.
The website did not appear to have any news releases prior to 2023 as of Saturday morning.
A representative for Stefanik told HEADLINESFOREVER that Cheney was “lashing out” due to personal animosity, and that Stefanik’s earlier comments were still accessible on several social media platforms.
