According to Representative Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., there was no political motivation for the FBI to search former President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida resort house.

When questioned about the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago, Cheney told ABC News, “I’ve seen no evidence that there was any political intent.”

“I was embarrassed to hear Republicans criticise the FBI agents who carried out the search warrant out of the gate. When President Trump issued the unredacted search warrant and revealed the names of the agents, I was shocked to find that this had led to violence.

Cheney stated in the Sunday broadcast of the interview.

She said, “Right now is incredibly risky.”

Cheney also stated that she will work with political figures from both parties to make sure that Trump never again holds the nation’s highest position following her defeat in the congressional primary.

In an interview with ABC News, Cheney said, “I think, I think we have to make sure that he is not our nominee.

Cheney said that Trump’s allegations that American elections are fixed are damaging and go against the “fundamental function and principle at the core of our constitutional republic.”

Cheney said, “There’s just simply no way that the nation and in my view, excuse it and put him in a position of power again” in reference to Trump’s loss in the 2020 presidential election and the ensuing assault on the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

When asked about the committee on January 6, which she chairs in a vice-chair capacity, Cheney opted not to comment on whether Trump will be asked to testify.

“I don’t want to announce anything regarding that this morning. It’s crucial, in my opinion. I mentioned the same thing both during the first and second hearings. He’ll be under oath when he speaks with our committee, she said.

Cheney stated that legal counsel for former vice president Mike Pence had been consulted by the committee.

“Everyone who has information has an obligation to come forward when the country has experienced something as serious as this. I therefore hope that he will,” Cheney added.
