- Rep. Cheney reacted to news that Trump refused to depart the White Residence after shedding the election.
- The revelations are component of a reserve written by Maggie Haberman, a reporter with The New York Situations.
- A single of the book’s scoops was Trump telling his aides, “I am just not going to depart.”
Rep. Liz Cheney reacted to a report that former President Donald Trump advised aides “I’m just not heading to go away” the White Home pursuing his election loss in 2020.
Cheney appeared on CNN on Monday to go over a sequence of scoops about Trump in “Self-confidence Person,” an approaching book by Maggie Haberman, a reporter with The New York Instances.
CNN host Jake Tapper questioned Cheney what her reaction was to Trump’s refusal to take the success.
“It is apparent that when you’re in the minute that we confronted, all people has to stand up and just take duty and I believe it is really not surprising that all those are the sentiments that he reportedly expressed,” she explained to Tapper. “I feel yet again it just affirms the reality of the threat.”
The Wyoming congresswoman is vice-chair of the Jan 6 committee, which reconvenes on Tuesday. Cheney has been one of the couple Republican critics of Trump above his part in the Capitol assault and his election lies.
She advised Tapper, “if you have a president who is refusing to go away the White Property or who’s stating he refuses to leave the White House, then anybody who stands apart and claims a person else will tackle it, is them selves putting the nation at hazard.”
On Monday, Trump’s legal professionals asked a federal judge to continue blocking the FBI from reviewing additional than 100 labeled files seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Seaside, Florida, in August.
