Earlier this week, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul spoke at an event in Wyoming in support of Rep. Liz Cheney’s challenger Harriet Hageman. Paul says Cheney’s vote for the Jan. 6 Committee is even worse than her vote for impeachment and that the Committee is an “abomination” that should be disbanded.
“I think It’s time we send Liz Cheney back to her home in Virginia. […] Arguably her vote for Jan. 6 committee and her vote to use this enormous and abusive subpoena power on her fellow Republican congressman is arguably even worse than her vote on impeachment.”
“This isn’t sort of a loyalty test. This is about abuse of power,” Paul added.
“They’re acting as prosecutor, judge and jury and they are using the full name of the federal government to go against and investigate and attempt to persecute people from all over the United States,” Hageman said.
The Wyoming Republican primary will take place on August 16, 2022.
