Liz Cheney tried to get campaign funds from subpoenaed January 6th witness
RINO-Rep Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who serves as vice-chair of the illegitimate and authoritarian January 6th Committee and who very well may lose her Congressional seat in the primaries, has been soliciting campaign funds from a witness she has subpoenaed for the vile committee.
Former director of operations for the Trump campaign Megan Small was subpoenaed by Cheney and the January 6th Committee in September of 2021. Monday, she posted to Twitter a Cheney mailer soliciting campaign money.

Without a shred of irony detectable, Cheney asks for large donations from a subpoenaed witness–people whom the Committee she serves on has threatened to hand over to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. All the while referring to herself as a conservative leader.
From the Federalist:
“[Cheney] has threatened to make criminal referrals to DOJ of those witnesses,” Small said. “So arguably the campaign contributions is being solicited not just from a witness, but from someone who may or may not be, at her discretion, referred to DOJ for criminal prosecution.”
President Donald Trump’s trade adviser Peter Navarro is the first among the more than 100 witnesses subpoenaed to face a DOJ indictment unsealed Friday. In April, the House of Representatives voted to hold Navarro in contempt of Congress for refusal to testify and turn over documents Navarro argues are protected by executive privilege. The House has also voted to hold a trio of other former Trump officials in contempt, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, former White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Dan Scavino, and former adviser Steve Bannon
Cheney is already obscenely well-funded, with over $10 million raised according to the FEC.
She is attempting to extract more money still, from out-of-state potential donors. More disconcertingly, from a person she has subpoenaed and threatened with criminal prosecution, which is surely unethical.
