Who Is Correct?

My VIPs for this week are the people of Wyoming who voted Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) out of office. Cheney and Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-Illinois) joined the Democrats on the congressional committee to “investigate” the assault on the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. Both Republicans are Never Trumpers and worked to keep Donald Trump from ever being elected as President again. The people of Wyoming saw that Cheney was not working for them and voted her out of office. Kinzinger saw the writing on the wall in Illinois and chose not to run for reelection.

The January 6 select committee met for the last time today and voted unanimously to recommend to the Department of Justice to charge Trump for trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Suzanne Bates shared the following opinion in the Deseret News

In a report released at the committee’s final hearing, committee members recommended charging Trump with obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to make a false statement, and inciting an insurrection. After 18 months of deliberation and 10 public hearings, the committee’s full report is expected to be released Wednesday.

The committee also recommended Trump Administration lawyer John Eastman be charged for his part in allegedly trying to pressure Vice President Mike Pence to not certify the election on Jan. 6, and referred four members of Congress – House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, and Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania – to the House Ethics Committee for refusing to respond to the committee’s subpoenas.

Those people who broke the law on January 6, 2021, are being arrested and charged with crimes. However, people like Cheney and Kinzinger will not be happy until Trump is indicted, convicted, and thrown in prison.
