Liz Cheney has said she overheard a "chilling" plan involving Donald Trump's lawyers and an alleged attempt to stop Vice President Mike Pence from ratifying the 2020 presidential election just days before rioters stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Appearing on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show, the former Wyoming congresswoman spoke about a part of her new book titled Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning in which she said she heard Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis briefing "surrogates""advisers close to Trump with license to defend him publicly"and describing a scenario in which Vice President Mike Pence would refuse to count the votes of the 2020 presidential election.

The alleged plan to have fake electors installed to give Pence cause to refuse the certification of the election, Cheney said, became clear to her during the call.

"There had been talk [that] we were going to have these electors meet...but it wasn't clear to me what the contours of this particular part of the plan were until I dialed into that phone call," she said."

.

"Cheney added that she found through the investigation of the January 6 committee"of which she was a member"that Pence and those close to him had been having "discussions" with the Senate parliamentarian.

She said the call took place on January 4 and was a "dangerous and chilling moment."

According to a report by ABC News, Pence told special counsel Jack Smith that Trump had pushed the U.S. towards a "constitutional crisis."

The report also said that Pence wrote in his notes on Christmas Eve that he was "Not feeling like I should attend electoral count" as there were "Too many questions [and] too many doubts."

Pence was also concerned it would be "hurtful" to a person described as his friend, likely Trump.

"Therefore I'm not going to participate in certification of election," he added in the notes.

Pence would eventually oversee the certification process."

The only way for Lumpers to win elections is to proclaim the other side is Nazi fascist.

Elite Ds like yourself offer nothing to help the people.

For you guys, from here on out, all political opposition is Nazis and fascist.

Look in the mirror.

Inflation is down, growth is up... only an idiot would call that ----.

But even a public hardened to good news by rwing lies won't be able to stay in denial as these trends continue into the summer campaign season.

But let's not disappoint Butt Boy's Delection from the thread topic....

fascism
noun
fascism fa-shi-z'm also fa-si-

often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition" - Webster Dictionary

Wonder if that would find on a Red Hat?

The only way for lumpers to win elections is for the other side to keep nominating a nazi fascist?

So why do they do that? Because they're nazi fascists too. Don't whine about being called what you are.

She's FIT for president, as in she's not an insane fascist russian puppet like the rest of your party. But find me anyone on the left who WANTS her as president.

Be careful of polls offering NO sources. Tea Partiers and MAGA lie to themselves to keep their spirits high. I'll TELL YOU WHAT'S HIGH!The Republicans seem to be using and abusing all those drugs confiscated by cops from the hippies.

The only people calling for the extermination of Jewish people are white conservatives.
