Liz Cheney Weighs In On Trump Immunity Case

Former Congresswoman and January 6th Committee Member Liz Cheney has weighed in on Donald Trump’s immunity case pending before the Supreme Court and dismissed the former president’s action as a delaying tactic.

Cheney was quoted in the Des Moines Register saying, “When [Trump] now is pushing this idea that a president should have complete immunity against any criminal prosecution for anything he does in office and he’s pushed this appeal to the Supreme Court, I think it’s very important that the Supreme Court recognizes what he’s doing is a delaying tactic,” Cheney said while speaking at Drake University’s Annual Bucksbaum Distinguished Lectureship.

A report posted on said Cheney spoke at the Knapp Center on the Drake campus. According to the campus website, the hall can seat more than 6,400 people and it looked to be at full capacity.

Cheney told the crowd that it cannot be the case that a president of the United States can attempt to overturn an election and seize power and that our justice system is incapable of holding a trial and holding him to account before the next election.

On April 22, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on whether or not Trump is immune from prosecution, which will temporarily stop the federal election interference case against him from going to trial, according to NBC News. The move comes after Washington, D.C. appeals court rejected Trump’s claims of immunity from criminal charges for his actions leading up to the January 6th riot.

Cheney’s remarks drew hostile responses on X, formerly Twitter, by Trump supporters upset by new allegations that the January 6th Committee deleted records and refused to hear testimony from law enforcement officials.

Georgia talk show host Alan Sanders posted, “Now tell us what kind of person hides exculpatory evidence, deletes files, and publishes a false narrative to achieve a political hit job? How would you describe that person, @Liz_Cheney”

Cheney is currently on a speaking tour promoting her new anti-Trump political action committee, “Our Great Task,” named after a line in Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

Cheney served as the U.S. representative of Wyoming’s at-large congressional district from 2017 to 2023, according to a career summary in the Des Moines Register. She held the third-highest position in House Republican leadership.

Cheney officially broke with Trump after the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol and voted for his impeachment. She was one of two Republicans to serve on the January 6th Congressional Committee and lost her seat in Congress to a primary challenger in 2022.
