Jan. 6 panel staffers angry at Cheney for focusing so much of report on Trump

Rep. Liz Cheney’s influence over the committee’s report has rankled many current and former staff. They are angered and disillusioned by her push to focus the report primarily on former president Donald Trump. The feuding brings to the fore a level of public acrimony within the Jan. 6 committee. Liz Adler, chair of the House Select Committee on Homeland Security, says she’s “prioritizing” understanding what Donald Trump did and how he did it. Staff submitted subpar material for her report that reflects long-held liberal biases, she says.
