Disgraced former Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) responded with indignation following a recent report that revealed the Democrats’ Jan. 6 Committee had withheld “exonerating evidence” supporting President Donald Trump’s defense. Cheney, a prominent member of the anti-Trump House committee, expressed her frustration on social media after the new evidence, disclosed by The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway, sparked outrage online.

Hemingway’s report accuses Cheney and the Jan. 6 committee of concealing exonerating evidence regarding then-President Trump’s request for 10,000 National Guard troops to safeguard the nation’s capital on January 6, 2021. The report highlighted that Cheney and her associates had falsely denied having any evidence to back up Trump officials’ assertions that the White House had communicated its need for 10,000 National Guard troops.

Nevertheless, an early transcribed interview conducted by the committee did contain such evidence from a crucial source. That key source was Deputy Chief of Staff Anthony Ornato.

Ornato revealed that he had overheard White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows urging Washington D.C.’s Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser to request as many National Guard troops as necessary on Jan. 6. He also testified that Trump had recommended deploying 10,000 troops to maintain order at public gatherings and protests scheduled for Jan. 6, 2021. Ornato emphasized that Trump’s White House had been dissatisfied with Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller’s delayed deployment of assistance during the riot.

Kash Patel, the former chief of staff to the acting secretary of defense, corroborated Ornato’s testimony. According to The Federalist, this information was suppressed.

According to Hemingway, the committee distorted the interview and concealed the transcript from public scrutiny.

“On top of that, committee allies began publishing critical stories and even conspiracy theories about Ornato ahead of follow-up interviews with him,” The Federalist notes.

“Ornato was a career Secret Service official who had been detailed to the security position in the White House.

“Cheney frequently points skeptics of her investigation to the Government Publishing Office website that posted, she said, ‘transcripts, documents, exhibits & our meticulously sourced 800+ page final report.’

“That website provides ‘supporting documents’ to the claims made by Cheney and fellow anti-Trump enthusiasts.

“However, transcripts of fewer than half of the 1,000 interviews the committee claims it conducted are posted on that site.

“It is unclear how many of the hidden transcripts include exonerating information suppressed by the committee.”

Republican Representative Barry Loudermilk from Georgia responded to the report, asserting that it substantiates President Trump’s account of the events.

“The former J6 Select Committee apparently withheld Mr. Ornato’s critical witness testimony from the American people because it contradicted their pre-determined narrative,” Loudermilk said.

“Mr. Ornato’s testimony proves what Mr. Meadows has said all along: President Trump did in fact offer 10,000 National Guard troops to secure the U.S. Capitol, which was turned down.”
