Representative Liz Cheney told CNN there are “facts and evidence” to prosecute Donald Trump. If the DOJ doesn’t prosecute, Cheney said there could be doubts that the United States is a “nation of laws.” Cheney, a Republican, co-chairs the House committee investigating the attack on the Capitol.

GOP Rep. Liz Cheney recently questioned whether the United States could consider itself a “nation of laws” if the Justice Department decides not to prosecute former President Donald Trump for his role in the Capitol riot of January 6, 2021, “if the facts and the evidence are there.”

“Understanding what it means if the facts and evidence are there, and they decide not to prosecute – how can we call ourselves a nation of laws then?” Cheney asked during an interview with CNN on Thursday. “I think it’s a very serious balance.”

The decision to bring formal charges against Trump is in the hands of Attorney General Merrick Garland and his Department of Justice.

Cheney is the vice chairman of the House Select Committee investigating the attack on the Capitol and one of two Republicans serving on the committee.

She was one of the few in her party to criticize Trump following the Capitol violence and was one of 10 GOP members to vote to impeach the former president after the Capitol uprising (the second time that the House voted to impeach Trump). The former president was eventually acquitted by the US Senate.
