What a clown show.
Liz Cheney’s Jan. 6 witch hunt committee released a damning letter to the press earlier this month that claimed former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik attended a meeting on January 5th at the Willard Hotel in Washington DC where Trump advisors discussed how to overturn the recorded November 2020 election results.
But there was only one problem with their assertion, as The Gateway Pundit reported earlier — Bernie Kerik was in New York City at the time dealing with a family emergency.
This was fake news.
The November 8th subpoena even cited an impressive source: a book by famed investigative journalist Bob Woodward. But there was also a problem with this allegation. Woodward’s book doesn’t even mention the former NYPD commission once in its 482 pages. So the Jan. 6 Committee allegations against Bernie Kerik were completely made up.
On Tuesday Bernard Kerik’s attorneys replied to Liz Cheney’s January 6th Committee. Kerik’s attorneys are demanding that the Jan. 6 Committee withdraw their previous letter and press release and issue a public apology.
Mr. Kerik demands that both the letter and press release be withdrawn or corrected and an apology issued. Whether intentional or negligent, allowingthese false statements to stand on the website of this Committee is improper and should be corrected.
The attorneys representing Bernard Kerik then described his role prior to the January 6 congressional vote.
Mr. Kerik was not tasked with trying to overturn the will of the people,only to ensure that the will of the people was accurately reflected. If there was no evidenceof fraud, he would have reported that. What he did find was significant evidence of fraud but was unable to complete the investigation to determine whether any of evidence wasconclusive or whether the election result would have been any different. Thesedeterminations would have required additional time, resources, and subpoena power.
Here is a copy of the letter from Timony Parlatore to Bennie Johnson and Liz Cheney’s January 6th Committee.
