Cheney Goes There: Not Prosecuting Trump is ‘Grave Threat’ To Constitution

From the very beginning of the January 6th select committee’s investigation, it was plain to see that Donald Trump was going to be the target.  Sure, they talked a big game about being bipartisan, but that appeared to be true on paper only.  And yes, the committee did attempt to convince the American people that they wouldn’t be simply rehashing Trump’s second impeachment, in which he was ultimately acquitted of “inciting” the violence at the Capitol, but that has been a huge part of their story.

And so maybe it shouldn’t be surprising that the group is now openly calling for Trump to be prosecuted, marking a major step toward the absurd conclusion that so many conservatives had predicted was waiting in the wings.

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said the Justice Department should prosecute former President Donald Trump if warranted, arguing not doing so would be a threat to the Constitution.

“I think it’s a much graver constitutional threat if a president can engage in these kinds of activities, and the majority of the president’s party looks away; or we as a country decide we’re not actually going to take our constitutional obligations seriously,” Cheney said in an interview with ABC News’ “This Week” on Sunday. “I think that’s a much, a much more serious threat.”

“I really believe we have to make these decisions, as difficult as it is, apart from politics. We really have to think about these from the perspective of what does it mean for the country,” she added.

Cheney is one of the Republicans tapped by the committee in order to be able to claim bipartisanship, but the Wyoming Congresswoman has been so far removed from the GOP’s feelings on Trump that the Wyoming State Republican Party has disowned her.
