Liz Cheney has been labeled a trader following her decision to turn on Trump and vote to impeach him.
Cheney says she believes some Republicans are “shameful.” Cheney explains further that she thinks Republicans are denying Donald Trump’s responsibility for the January 6 Capitol riot.
Now New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik has a new nickname for Cheney.
According to Stefanik, Rep. Liz Cheney is working as a “Pelosi pawn” since she joined Pelosi’s Jan. 6 committee. The committee has been heavily criticized as an extremely partisan attempt to cherrypick the facts leading up to the events on Jan. 6th at the Capitol.
“And when it comes to Liz Cheney, she is a Pelosi Republican, a Pelosi pawn at this point,” Stefanik said.
“She does not represent the Republican conference, or Republican voters or the American people.”
“Pelosi bears responsibility because we know that as early as December, there was information and intelligence that there were potential security threats and that the Capitol was not going to be secure on January 6,” she said.
“Nancy Pelosi refused to act. We also know that on January 6, Nancy Pelosi was passed a note by the sergeant-at-arms, her political appointee, asking for her permission to bring in the National Guard. She hesitated,” Stefanik added.

TRENDING 👇 Biden Offering Money to Americans Who Get Vaccinated
The Biden administration appears to be desperate.
Biden asked state and local governments to use funds from his $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan to offer $100 payments to individuals in order to incentivize coronavirus vaccinations, The Hill reports.
The Treasury Department said, “Treasury stands ready to give technical assistance to state and local governments so that they may use the funds effectively to support increased vaccination in their communities, and Treasury will partner with the Department of Health and Human Services throughout this effort.”
Biden said at the White House, “I know that paying people to get vaccinated might sound unfair to folks that have gotten vaccinated already but here’s the deal: if incentives help us beat this virus, I believe we should use them…. We all benefit if we can get more people vaccinated,” Biden added.
More from The Hill:
The $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief law, which Biden signed in March, included $350 billion in funding to assist state, territorial and local governments in battling the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic… The Treasury Department clarified in May that governments that receive funds could use them for vaccine incentive programs. Several states and private businesses have already offered vaccine incentives in the form of lotteries and free food and other goods.
The announcement represents the latest strategy by the Biden administration to incentivize vaccines amid the spread of the more contagious delta variant… Almost 70 percent of U.S. adults have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, but vaccination rates have leveled off in recent weeks, and the percentage of people who are vaccinated in some areas of the country remains low.
