Cheney: If Trump is not prosecuted, the US is not considered a nation of laws


Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) said Thursday on UKTN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that the United States could not be considered a land of laws if former President Donald Trump was not prosecuted.

Kasie Hunt, UKTN’s chief national affairs analyst, said: “Some have expressed concern about the persecution of former President Trump which has made him a martyr and may have increased his political power for the grassroots that follow him quite rabidly. that concern? Are you concerned that the prosecution would strengthen Donald Trump’s political hand?”

Cheney said, “I don’t think it’s appropriate to think about it that way, because the question before us is, are we a nation of laws? Are we a country where no one is above the law? And with that, the facts and the evidence show. Certainly, I have been very clear, and I think he is clearly guilty of the most dereliction of duty of any president in the history of our nation. A federal judge in California said it’s more likely than not that he and John Eastman committed two crimes. I think we will continue to follow the facts and the Justice Department will too. They had to make decisions about prosecution, understand what it means when the facts and evidence are there, and they decide not to prosecute. How then do we call ourselves a nation of laws? I think it’s a very serious balance.”
