Liz Cheney in a Hot Spot as Jan.6 Committee is Confirmed Illegitimate, Sending Good News to MAGA


Liz Cheney has found herself in a precarious position as the January 6th Committee, on which she served, has been declared illegitimate by the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG). This development has been welcomed by supporters of the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement, who have long contested the committee’s legitimacy.

In a tweet posted on Wednesday, June 26, 2024, Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson made a significant announcement regarding the January 6th Committee. He revealed that the House would file an amicus brief in support of Steve Bannon’s appeal against his contempt of Congress conviction related to the investigation by what has now been declared an illegitimate committee.

This brings out the good news to Steve Bannon including The Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG) voted 3-2 to establish the official legal position of the House that the January 6th Committee was illegitimate, rendering all subpoenas issued by the committee also illegitimate.

Consequently, BLAG directed the House Office of General Counsel to file an amicus brief in support of Steve Bannon with Justice Roberts. Representative Matt Gaetz provided an explanation of the BLAG process in a video, and Bannon expressed optimism about his appeal during a recent conversation.

The Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG), a standing body of the U.S. House of Representatives formed in 1993, includes the Speaker of the House along with the majority and minority leadership. BLAG oversees the House’s Office of General Counsel, guiding and overseeing legal issues and decisions involving the House of Representatives.

In an appearance on Fox News with Sean Hannity, Speaker Johnson shared the news and provided further details about the House’s position on the January 6th Committee.

Hannity inquired about the House’s latest actions, particularly in relation to Steve Bannon and the January 6th Committee: “Mr. Speaker, I understand there might be a change in the House’s position regarding the January 6th Committee, which could significantly impact Steve Bannon’s contempt case. What’s happening?”

Speaker Johnson responded, “Yes, we’re preparing to file an amicus brief to support Bannon’s appeal. We believe the January 6th Committee was wrongfully constituted and that its work was tainted.

We suspect that the committee may have covered up evidence and potentially engaged in more nefarious activities. Our investigation into the committee has led us to conclude that Speaker Pelosi violated House rules in forming it. We will be presenting these concerns to the court, which we believe will aid Steve Bannon in his appeal.”

This development marks a critical turn in the ongoing legal battles stemming from the January 6th investigation. The declaration of the committee’s illegitimacy not only impacts Steve Bannon’s case but also raises questions about the broader implications for other individuals subpoenaed by the committee.

The controversy surrounding the January 6th Committee has been a contentious issue, with significant political and legal ramifications. Speaker Johnson’s announcement and the subsequent actions by the House represent a major victory for those who have long contested the committee’s legitimacy.

It also places significant scrutiny on the actions and decisions made by the committee and its members, including prominent figures like Liz Cheney, who played a central role in the committee’s operations.

For supporters of the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement, this news is seen as a validation of their long-standing claims against the committee and a step towards addressing what they perceive as injustices carried out during the investigation.
