Former Donald Trump Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney has turned on Trump over January 6th but, as he indicated during a recent appearance on CNN, he doubts that those other high-profile Republicans who have done the same and now routinely attack Trump are doing so in good faith or because they actually had a change of heart. Rather, he thinks they’re just doing it for political advantage.
Such is what he said during his recent interview with Kacie Hunt, mainly by attacking Wyoming’s RINO Rep. Liz Cheney, who he said he doesn’t believe in the slightest. Speaking on that, Mulvaney said:
“I don’t think anybody should be afraid to watch these hearings and make up their own minds as to what’s happening.
“I don’t believe anything that Liz Cheney says about the situation. I don’t believe anything Bennie Thompson says. They’re hopelessly biased. But I do believe Republicans when they put their hand on the Bible and say, ‘look, this happened, this might constitute a crime.‘”
Hunt then pressed him on his remarks about Liz Cheney, asking about her role in the GOP and role in the January 6th hearings, saying:
“You don’t believe anything Liz Cheney says when clearly she played a key role in convincing Cassidy Hutchinson to testify? You don’t think that she’s taking a noble role in the Republican party?”
Mulvaney, in response, accused Liz of just pushing “political BS” with the hearings, saying:
“I know when I’m seeing political BS from people. I know when I’m seeing show boating.”
Left unsaid was that, whatever Liz Cheney’s role in the party is now, she might not have one come November thanks to the efforts of her decidely more MAGA-friendly challenger, Harriet Hageman, who is up in the polls and has been backed by former President Donald Trump. Endorsing Hageman, Trump said:
“I strongly endorse Republican House of Representatives Candidate Harriet Hageman from Wyoming who is running against warmonger and disloyal Republican, Liz Cheney. Harriet is a fourth-generation daughter of Wyoming, a very successful attorney, and has the support and respect of a truly great U.S. Senator, Wyoming’s own Cynthia Lummis.”
Hageman, who once backed and supported Liz Cheney, turned on her after deciding that Liz had “betrayed” her state, party, and country, saying:
“Like many Wyomingites, I supported Liz Cheney when she ran for Congress. But then she betrayed Wyoming, she betrayed this country, and she betrayed me.”
A recent poll shows Cheney trailing Hageman severely, with Politico reporting:
GOP Rep. Liz Cheney is down 30 points in a new survey of her August primary conducted by the Club for Growth, which is opposing the embattled incumbent.
The poll, which provides perhaps the starkest illustration yet of the political peril Cheney faces this year, shows Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman garnering 56 percent of the vote to Cheney’s 26 percent in the GOP primary. A third Republican got 12 percent support, and just 6 percent are undecided.
So, whatever the intent of Liz’s current antics, it looks like she won’t be around in Congress to keep them up much longer.
