Liz Cheney Believes Key Officials' Actions Surrounding Russia Probe Could Be 'Treason'

Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Sunday told Martha Raddatz on ABC’s “This Week” she believes the text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page could be considered treason.


“I think what is really crucially important to remember here is that you had Strzok and Page who were in charge of launching this investigation and they were saying things like, 'We must stop this president. We need an insurance policy against this president,'” Cheney said, referencing text messages between the former FBI officials.

"In my view when you have people that are in the highest echelons of the law enforcement of this nation saying things like that, that sounds an awful lot like a coup -- and it could well be treason and I think we need to know more,” she said. "We need to know Jim Comey's role in all of this. These people reported to him. Andy McCabe reported to him. What was Comey's role in all that? And that's what the attorney general is going to be, should be focused, on."

According to Cheney, Attorney General William Barr needs to be able to find out how people like Strzok and Page abused their authority to keep a duly elected president from taking office.


Last week, President Donald Trump gave Barr the go-ahead to investigate the origins of the Russia probe. If he sees fit, Barr is also allowed to declassify and release material related to the investigation.
