[WATCH] Jonathan Swan: Cheney Put Trump and Jan 6th Problem ‘Into a Silo’

Axios national political reporter Jonathan Swan recently interviewed Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) regarding her ousting from Republican leadership. While Cheney gained sympathetic support during the debacle that saw her replaced with Trump sycophant Elise Stefanik, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney is still very much in line with her father’s way of tackling politics.

Swan appeared on MSNBC on Tuesday and spoke to how he thinks she wants to look at the problem of the Big Lie without acknowledging what came before and what has come after it, which is one of the oldest dodges in the Republican playbook.

During a panel discussion on “Deadline: White House”, host Nicolle Wallace referred to Cheney’s refusal to give in to the Big Lie (while still voting with Trump 93% of the time), which Swan said created a disconnect within the Republican Party. Cheney simply showed her true colors, cherry-picking the talking points that suited her current argument while never directly confronting the real issue.

“Liz Cheney is taking a stand against Donald Trump and January 6th,” Swan told Wallace. “The problem is, she’s put the issue into a silo. She does not acknowledge what came before, or what came after.”

Jonathan Swan’s full interview with Liz Cheney is available on HBO.
