(DCWatchdog.com) – Just moments ago, during the latest hearing being held by the January 6th Investigative Committee in the United States House of Representatives, Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) accused former President Donald Trump of accepting advice from Rudy Giuliani while Giuliani was intoxicated on election night 2020.
You can watch the video further down this post.
Specifically, Cheney stated:
You will hear firsthand testimony that the president’s campaign advisors urged him to await the counting of votes and not to declare victory on election night. The president understood even before the election that many more Biden voters had voted by mail because President Trump ignored the advice of his campaign experts and told his supporters only to vote in person. Donald Trump knew before the election that counting those mail-in ballots in several states would not begin until late in the day and would not be complete for multiple days. This was expected, reported, and widely known.
You will also hear testimony that President Trump rejected the advice of his campaign experts on election night. And instead, followed the course recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani to just claim he won and insist that the vote-counting stop to falsely claim everything was fraudulent. He falsely told the American people that the election was not legitimate. In his words, “a major fraud.” Millions of Americans believed him.
Second, pay attention to what Donald Trump and his legal team said repeatedly about Dominion voting machines. Far-flung conspiracies with a deceased Venezuelan communist allegedly pulling the strings. This was “complete nonsense,” as Bill Barr said. President Trump’s own campaign advisors, the Department of Justice, and his cybersecurity experts all told him the same thing.
