Cheney to Court: Speed Up Jan. 6 Trial, Trump Fears Evidence

Liz Cheney, the former Republican Congresswoman from Wyoming, has articulated a pressing need for the federal election interference case against former President Donald Trump to progress to trial before the upcoming presidential election in November. Cheney’s call to action, delivered during an event at Drake University in Iowa, emphasized the urgency of addressing Trump’s legal appeal, which she characterizes as a stratagem to postpone the legal process.

Cheney expressed her concern over the potential implications for American democracy, positing that it would be unacceptable for a former president to undermine an election and yet evade accountability through legal delays. Her remarks reflect a broader anxiety about the integrity of the U.S. justice system and its capacity to conduct a timely trial in such high-stakes circumstances.

Trump’s legal team has been actively seeking postponements in his various criminal proceedings, attributing the need for delays to different reasons, all while the clock ticks closer to the 2024 presidential election. Notably, Trump’s case regarding federal election interference, seen by many critics as pivotal to address before the November election, is in a state of suspension pending a Supreme Court decision on Trump’s assertion of immunity from criminal prosecution for acts performed during his presidency. This crucial case is set to be reviewed by the Supreme Court on April 25.

As the vice chair of the House committee that probed Trump’s actions to overturn his 2020 electoral defeat, Cheney has had a front-row seat to the accumulation of evidence against Trump. She underscored that, contrary to his assertions, Trump has been provided with all the evidence amassed by the special counsel’s investigation, which led to his federal indictment, as well as the findings of the January 6 select committee.

Cheney voiced her suspicion that Trump is fully aware of the damning nature of this evidence, which she believes is driving his efforts to delay the legal process. She elaborated on the extensive measures Trump has taken to thwart the January 6 trial from proceeding before his potential re-election bid, interpreting these actions as a clear indicator of his awareness of the evidence’s damaging potential.

Further, Cheney articulated that Trump is cognizant of the damning testimonies provided to the grand jury by high-ranking officials in his administration, including the vice president, attorney general, and secretaries of defense. This knowledge, Cheney argues, likely contributes to Trump’s motivation to impede the trial process.

Addressing Trump’s plea for presidential immunity, Cheney cautioned the Supreme Court against yielding to what she perceives as delay tactics, asserting that such postponements would equate to suppressing evidence critical to the public’s understanding. She expressed confidence that the Supreme Court would handle Trump’s appeal with the necessary alacrity and responsibility, emphasizing the importance of allowing the American public access to the evidence in an open court setting.

In response to Cheney’s assertions, Trump’s campaign spokesperson, Steven Cheung, retorted sharply, accusing Cheney of attempting to manipulate the justice system for electoral interference, and suggesting that she is afflicted with an irrational bias against Trump, pejoratively described as “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”
