yes we all hate Cheney here for good reason but she makes an excellent attack dog. It's good that for at least the commission, Pelosi has her on a leash and lets her out to savage the despicable McCarthy
Cheney rips into McCarthy after he pulls out his other Jan 6th commission picks following Pelosi vetoing 2 Jordan and Banks

This is definitely a "my enemy's enemy" situation. I can't believe how rare she is within the GOP. It is insane that we have so many scummy people in this country who worship someone so fucking stupid as Trump, and for all of the worst possible reasons.

does anyone know if McCarthy has the power to run "a separate investigation" as he threatened? I thought only the majority had the power to investigate anything.
Also, if McCarthy does not put more members into Pelosi's select committee, can Pelosi just select other repubs willing to do it such as Kinzinger?

McCarthy and gym jordan and probably the others were both part of the insurrection. They supported and incited the insurrectionists. Some of the repug politicians gave tours to deplorables in the days leading up to the insurrection
How can they be part of an investigation into themselves?

Nikki Haley wants to be the POTUS so bad. An Astronaut Currently in Orbit can detect her thirst and ambition.
I can't stand Haley. I admit, however, I fear her, because if Biden dies while in office, she'd be a formidable opponent to Harris.
I would bet Haley is warily eying Liz Cheney although I have my doubts Cheney want to be the POTUS, and, she probably believes that she can't get the nomination even if she does.
Meanwhile, I have to believe VP Harris knows all of this already and is preparing for, somewhere down the line, a showdown with Haley.
Of course, all of this is premised on my fondest wish (a wish that, secretly and fervently, Melania, Trump Spawn, and ALL Repugs share) - Trump toppling over dead finally becoming reality.

R23, I don’t think Cheney is planning on running against Biden, but in 7 or 11 years, with Trump dead or at least (more) senile, and with the spell he has cast over the party finally fading, I would bet on the party looking for someone who is untainted by Trump and who is seen as a safe pair of (staunchly Republican) hands.
Cheney could well be that person, and you know they would love to have the first female president be from the Republican Party, just as the UK Tories boasted for Years about Thatcher.

Liz and her sister Mary had a falling out a few years ago when Liz said she was opposed to gay marriage despite the fact Mary is married, has kids and even Dick Cheney supported gay marriage. I assume Liz was claiming to be opposed to curry favor with the rightwing to run for Congress. Somebody should ask her if she changed her views. The two sisters had always been very close.

Liberals defending Liz Cheney is more residual disaster that tRump did to our country. Prior to tRump entering the scene in 2015, no one ever dreamed that we would be defending republiturds like Liz Cheney, John McCain, Mitt Romney and Adam Kingsinger.

R32, we are defending a specific thing that goes well-beyond politics, not their policies. If we do not stand together on this, then we lose everything.
And anyone who thinks Trump isn't the biggest disaster, says it because they don't care about the countless people on the receiving end of his cruelty and corruption. A

R51 s right. Cheney is considered a traitor and is very unlikely to ever advance any higher in the GOP.
Likewise, Mitt Romney will never be President after voting to convict Trump in 2 Impeachment Trials.
The Republican moving up the fastest right now on the way to 2024 is Ron DeSantis, and that's because he's a Trumper.
