‘What her daddy did is a war crime’: Retired colonel blasts Liz Cheney for her ‘could be treason’ comments

Published

on

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney is once again under fire for false and offensive remarks she has made.

Air Force Colonel Morris Davis (ret.), who also served as the Chief Prosecutor of the Guantanamo military commissions, slammed the Congresswoman from Wyoming Sunday night over her false attacks against now-former FBI officials Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page, including her false claim that their actions could be seen as a “coup” or “treason.”

Davis, who served in the U.S Armed Forces from 1983-2007, blasted Cheney – and her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney.

“That’s not treason,” Col. Davis said in response, via Twitter, adding that if Rep. Cheney “is really interested in accountability for serious malfeasance what her daddy did is a war crime and a violation of the Convention Against Torture which the U.S. has an obligation to investigate and punish.”

Sunday, on ABC News’ “This Week,” Cheney had said, “I think what is really crucially important to remember here is that you had Strzok and Page, who were in charge of launching this investigation, and they were saying things like, ‘We must stop this president. ‘We need an insurance policy against this president.’ That, in my view, when you have people that are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that, that sounds an awful lot like a coup. And it could well be treason. And I think that we need to know more.”

She added: “We need to know what was Jim Comey’s role in all this? These people reported to him. Andy McCabe reported to him. What was Comey’s role in that?”

Recently, Cheney’s remarks was criticized when she falsely claimed House Democrats “enable anti-Semitism.” She also drew the ire of GOP leaders when she was one of just 22 Republicans who voted against a resolution denouncing a wide-range of hate and bigotry.

Republican lawmakers ask judge to destroy smoking gun documents proving GOP’s white supremacy

Republicans on Monday sought a court order to block damning documents from being used against them in a lawsuit.

"North Carolina Republican lawmakers on Monday asked a court to make sure the files of the now-deceased GOP strategist Tom Hofeller are destroyed, or at least kept secret, instead of being used in a high-profile gerrymandering lawsuit," the Raleigh News & Observer reported.

"The filing comes after the groups behind the lawsuit, including Common Cause, accused Republican lawmakers of making false statements in court in a previous gerrymandering case, when the state’s 2011 maps were ruled unconstitutional," the newspaper noted. "That blockbuster accusation made national headlines and was, it said, based on Hofeller’s files which had been secret until recently."

Trump angrily demands newspaper reveal unnamed sources behind bombshell report on his Russia policy

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday evening again lashed out at The New York Times for reporting on his Russia policy.

"The story in The New York Times about the U.S. escalating attacks on Russia’s power grid is fake news, and the failing New York Times knows it," Trump argued in a tweet sent after 10 p.m.

"They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony," he continued.

"Times must be held fully accountable," he demanded.
