Representative Liz Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming, called out Rudy Giuliani for helping Former President Donald Trump collect “phantom evidence” that 2020 election stolen. This is the final January 6th investigative committee hearing into what occurred on the fateful day that an insurrection occurred at the Capitol. President Trump and his allies have continued to perpetuate the “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was stolen through voter fraud. This claim has been proven false on multiple occasions. Representative Liz Cheney is one of two Republicans on the January 6th Committee and she lost her primary election, so she will not be returning to office after the midterms.

CHENEY: “Many of those who stepped forward to help including Rudy Giuliani knew they never had real evidence sufficient to change the election results and on the evening of January 5th, they admitted they were still trying to find that phantom evidence. Of course, as a result of making intentionally false claims of election fraud, Mr. Giuliani's license to practice law has now been suspended.”
