Photo of Liz Cheney’s dramatic hug after J6 hearing sparks more doubt and outrage

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney, one of two so-called Republicans on the House’s January 6th Committee, has claimed the investigation is balanced and fair but many of the panel’s actions and some optics tell a different story.

“If questioner (Cheney) wants to appear fair to jury (American people), it probably is not a good idea to get caught on camera hugging the witness,” tweeted Greta Van Susteren, citing Politico and sharing an image of Cheney hugging Cassidy Hutchinson after a special hearing on Tuesday.

The telling photo of Cheney’s exchange with the former aide to ex-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows following her bombshell allegations about former President Trump raised questions about the committee’s supposed objectiveness in the proceedings.

Susteren’s tweet went on to note that “already people have very strong feelings – both ways – about this hearing and pics like this don’t help.”

Last week, the vice chairwoman of the House Jan. 6 select committee marched over to the witness table during recess and gave a hug to Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers after his testimony.

Cheney’s latest move in hugging Hutchinson, whose testimony was almost immediately shot full of holes by those who were actually involved in the events she recounted, sparked heated criticism on social media.
