Liz Cheney Smokes President’s Lead Lawyer

Liz Cheney Smokes President's Lead Lawyer "He Didn't Just Lose Election Fraud Cases, He lost his License to Practice Law"

On Wednesday, the House voted to hold former Trump advisers Peter Navarro and Dan Scavino in hatred of Congress. They are disobeying subpoenas issued by the House committee hearing investigating the Capitol insurgency.

Members spoke over the floor about the contempt resolution before the vote. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), a member of the committee, encouraged her colleagues to vote yes while also criticising Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani. She mocked his efforts to try and influence the 2020 presidential election, and also the fact that his licence to practise law in New York was revoked due to false statements he has made in court.

“The president’s lead lawyer did not even just end up losing these cases, he did lose his licence to practise law,” Cheney said, “because the president’s election claims were so frivolous and unfounded.”

“The New York Supreme Court found, quote, ‘There is indisputable proof that Mr Giuliani expressed demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers, and the general public in his capacity as a lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed reelection bid in 2020.'”

Cheney finished by taking a dig at her Republican colleagues

“Those in this chamber who continue to support the former president and his dangerous and damaging lies should look in the mirror,” Liz Cheney said. “At a time when our republic is in grave danger when fidelity to our Constitution is critical, they have decided to abandon their oaths to serve Donald Trump.” That is what they will be remembered for.”

She urged her colleagues to support the resolution, which was accepted by a vote of 220 to 203. Only Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who also serves on the Jan. 6 Committee, voted in favour of the bill.

Who is Peter Navarro?

Peter Kent Navarro is an author and economist from the United States. He worked as an Assistant to the President, Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, and policy coordinator for the National Defense Production Act in the Trump administration.

He previously worked as a Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of the White House National Trade Council, a recently created White House office, until it was closed into the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, a new role created by executive order in April 2017.


He is also an emeritus professor of economics and public policy at the University of California, Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business, and the author of Death by China, among other works. Navarro ran for office in San Francisco but lost. Navarro was a trade hawk in the Trump administration, encouraging Trump to implement trade protectionist policies.

Navarro explained his role in Trump’s administration by saying that he is there to help “provide the underlying analytics that back up [Trump’s] trade intuition. And his instincts are always correct in these situations.” Navarro argued in 2018 that no countries would retaliate against US tariffs “for the simple purpose that we are the most lucrative and largest market in the world”; however, other countries did implement customs duties against the US shortly after the tariffs were implemented, resulting in trade wars.

Who is Daniel Scavino Jr.?

Daniel Scavino Jr. is an American political consultant who served as White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications from 2019 to 2021 and Director of Social Media from 2017 to 2021 in the Trump administration. Scavino previously served as the general manager of Trump National Golf Club Westchester as well as the Donald Trump 2016 presidential campaign’s director of social media.


Since June 2015, Scavino has been a part of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Scavino was appointed as the campaign’s social media director by Trump in February 2016. Trump’s Twitter account posted an image of Hillary Clinton chosen by Scavino with text in the shape of a Star of David calling her the “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever” over the July 4, 2016 weekend, causing controversy.

Originally, the image was posted on an anti-Semitic, white supremacist message board. Trump’s team defended its use, claiming that the star was a “sheriff’s badge,” before eventually deleting the image and replacing it with a circle.

Rudolph Giuliani

Rudolph William Louis Giuliani was the 107th Mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001. He is an American politician and former attorney. From 1981 to 1983, he was the United States Associate Attorney General, and from 1983 to 1989, he was the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. In April 2018, Giuliani joined President Donald Trump’s legal team.

His actions as Trump’s lawyer have been the subject of renewed press coverage, including allegations of corruption and widespread corruption. As a key character in the Trump–Ukraine scandal, which tends to result in Trump’s first impeachment, Giuliani was supposedly under federal investigation in late 2019 for violating lobbying laws, among other things.

Following the 2020 presidential election, he represented Trump in a slew of lawsuits aimed at overturning the results, including false and debunked claims about rigged voting machines, polling place fraud, and an international communist plot. As a result, his licence to practise law in New York State was suspended in June 2021, and his licence to practise law in the District of Columbia was suspended in July 2021.

Who is Liz Cheney?

Elizabeth Lynne Cheney is an American lawyer and politician who has served in the United States Congress since 2017 as the spokesperson for Wyoming’s at-large congressional district. She served as the George W. Bush administration’s deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs and chaired the House Republican Conference from 2019 to 2021, the third-highest position in the House Republican leadership.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and Second Lady Lynne Cheney have an older daughter, Cheney. During the George W. Bush administration, she held several positions in the US State Department, including Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs and Organizer for Broader Middle East and North Africa Initiatives.


While co-chairing the Iran Syria Policy and Operational processes Group with Elliott Abrams, she advocated for regime change in Iran. Keep America Safe, a nonprofit group concerned with national security issues founded by Cheney and Bill Kristol in 2009, advocated for the Bush–Cheney administration’s positions. She ran for the U.S. Senate in Wyoming in 2014, but dropped out before the election, challenging three-term incumbent Mike Enzi. She is a member of the House of Representatives.
