Liz Cheney Confirms Profane Remark to ‘Son of a B*tch’ Jim Jordan During the Capital Riot: ‘You f***ing did this’

Prior to the release of journalists Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker’s book entitled “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year” last July, The Daily Beast published the following excerpt:

Talking with Joint Chief of Staff Chair Mark Milley, who is one of the adults in the room who Leonnig and Rucker depend on in their reporting and cast as something of a hero, Cheney ripped into ‘That f***ing guy Jim Jordan. That son of a b*tch… While these maniacs are going through the place, I’m standing in the aisle, and he said “We need to get the ladies away from the aisle. Let me help you.” I smacked his hand away and told him, ‘Get away from me. You f***ing did this.’

In an interview with The New York Times’ Michael Barbaro last week, Liz Cheney, one of two Republicans to sit on the House Jan. 6 Committee, confirmed the remarks.

Cheney told Barbaro: “I was in the aisle, on the aisle and he [Jordan] came over to me, you know, and basically said, we need to get the ladies away from the aisle. And, you know, I had watched for the months since the election what was going on and the lies that have been told to people.”

She continued: “And, you know, it was both that I, you know, certainly didn’t need his help, and secondly, I thought clearly that the lie that they had been spreading and telling people had absolutely contributed to what we were living through at that moment.”

Cheney’s animosity toward then-President Donald Trump and her GOP colleagues was present long before Jan. 6.

In addition to this little exchange with Rep. Jordan (R-OH) during the riot, it was reported last May that Cheney had secretly orchestrated a hit piece on the President that was published by The Washington Post on Jan. 3, 2020, just three days before the Capitol riot. It was entitled, “Opinion: All 10 living former defense secretaries: Involving the military in election disputes would cross into dangerous territory.”

A quick scan of the signers’ names, which included Ashton Carter, Dick Cheney, William Cohen, Mark Esper, Robert Gates, Chuck Hagel, James Mattis, Leon Panetta, William Perry and Donald Rumsfeld, showed ten men who despised former President Donald Trump. These men would likely sign anything if it meant hurting Trump.

(Note: The op-ed was based on conspiracy theories that were being advanced by Democrats in the weeks following the November election. Ultimately, a Reuters fact check declared the premise of the op-ed false. The specifics are way beyond the scope of this post, however, I covered the details in The Western Journal last May.)

In an interview with the New Yorker’s Susan Glasser, Eric Edelman, a friend of Cheney’s, who served as a national security advisor to her father, Dick Cheney, during his time as Vice President, unwittingly reveals the truth.

“She was the one who generated it, because she was so worried about what Trump might do,” Edelman told Glasser. “It speaks to the degree that she was concerned about the threat to our democracy that Trump represented.”

Cheney also circulated a twenty-one-page memo she and her husband, Phil Perry, who is also an attorney, had written on Jan. 3, “to the entire House Republican Conference. In it, Cheney debunked Trump’s false claims about election fraud and warned her colleagues that voting to overturn the election results, as Trump was insisting, would ‘set an exceptionally dangerous precedent.’”

This bitter, uncompromising, and calculating congresswoman has proven to be even less objective than most of the Democratic members of the Jan. 6 committee.

Cheney’s actions show how right her colleagues were to oust her from her lofty position as the House Republican Conference Chair last May.

Hopefully, Wyomingites will vote her out of office this year and she’ll sign on as “the conservative voice” at CNN and MSNBC where she can be easily tuned out.
