Former President Donald Trump intensified his demands for legal proceedings against ex-Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), accusing her and the Jan. 6 committee of concealing evidence related to the 2021 Capitol riot. Trump’s renewed call for prosecution stemmed from allegations that Cheney and the committee members suppressed information regarding his authorization of National Guard troops during the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021.

In a post on Truth Social, Trump shared an article by former Trump aide Kash Patel, asserting Cheney’s involvement in evidence suppression. Trump’s post exclaimed, “SHE SHOULD BE PROSECUTED FOR WHAT SHE HAS DONE TO OUR COUNTRY! SHE ILLEGALLY DESTROYED THE EVIDENCE. UNREAL!!!”

Cheney, who served as the vice chair of the House Jan. 6 committee, rebutted Trump’s allegations on X (formerly Twitter), emphasizing the availability of grand jury and Jan. 6 transcripts to Trump for several months. She highlighted Trump’s fear of the truth, given the potential testimonies against him from various officials and aides published in The Federalist .

The dispute arises amid the backdrop of Cheney’s outspoken criticism of Trump, which she believes contributed to the Capitol riot, and her subsequent loss in the 2022 Wyoming primary to a Trump-endorsed candidate. This contention coincides with House Republicans’ efforts to challenge the initial investigation into the Capitol insurrection and vindicate Trump of any misconduct, as he eyes a reelection bid.

The Republican report aims to refute claims against Trump, including an incident involving the former president’s car on Jan. 6, which has been a point of contention. While the House Jan. 6 select committee’s findings have been contested, Trump faces ongoing legal challenges related to his actions surrounding the 2020 election results, with the Supreme Court deliberating on the scope of presidential immunity in this context.
