Liz Cheney Names Key Trump 'Mastermind' With 'Probably A Lot To Hide' [View all]

Former Congresswoman, Liz Cheney, points the finger at current Republican, Jim Jordan, as one of the co-conspirators in the coup attempt. She does not mince words here. I am not a fan of hers, but she lays bare the facts of the 2020 election and warns us of the consequences of another term by you-know-who. Her one-on-one conversation with Rachel Maddow the other evening was not only insightful, but riveting. She knows where the bodies are buried.

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Tuesday talked with MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace about election-denying Rep. Jim Jordan’s potential criminal liability for the Jan. 6, 2021 attack by Donald Trump supporters on the U.S. Capitol.

“I think that there’s no question that Jim Jordan has something to hide, probably a lot to hide,” suggested Cheney, who has dropped several bombshell revelations in her new bestselling book “Oath and Honor.”

“If you go back and look at the phone records as well as what he’s said himself about his discussions and his conversations with Donald Trump on the 6th, the very significant role he played in the lead-up to that, [Jordan] was clearly one of the masterminds in terms of helping to facilitate Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the election and of course refused to comply with the select committee subpoena,” noted the ex-lawmaker.
