TRENDING: Trump judge rules on his request to subpoena Jan. 6 Committee records

Cheney criticized the Republican Party in a new book slated to come out Dec. 5, claiming one Republican congressman called former President Donald Trump “the Orange Jesus,” according to CNN. “I never thought I would be singing so many praises of a Cheney before, but I came to deeply respect her,” Schiff said of Cheney, who was defeated by Harriet Hageman by 37 points in a primary during the 2022 midterm election.

WATCH:

“Cheney said she has admiration for [Democratic Rep. Nancy] Pelosi’s leadership, she agrees with Pelosi on the one thing that matters most,” “Deadline: White House” guest host Alicia Menendez told Schiff. “[Democratic Rep. Jamie] Raskin has said much the same. They do agree on safeguarding democracy. Is there a cross party coalition for democracy? What would it look like for a group of Republicans and Democrats to come together on this core issue?”

“I love that anecdote about Nancy Pelosi, because it’s so classic Nancy Pelosi. It doesn’t matter what Liz may have said in the past, what matters and mattered to Nancy Pelosi is, is she the right person for this committee to do this work, and she clearly was,” Schiff responded. “You know, but for Adam [Kinzinger] and Liz on that committee, none of these witnesses would have come forward. What made the hearing so powerful is that all the witnesses, almost all of them were Republicans that came forward because of Liz and Adam.”

Pelosi barred Republican Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Jim Banks of Indiana from serving on the Jan. 6 Select Committee, prompting a Republican boycott of the panel. She later appointed Cheney and Kinzinger, both outspoken critics of Trump, to the panel.

“With the leadership of Bennie Thompson, we worked together, notwithstanding, you know, deep ideological differences that each of us had with each other,” Schiff told Menendez, the daughter of indicted Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey. “I never thought I would be singing so many praises of a Cheney before, but I came to deeply respect her, and I think that was very mutual in terms of all of us on the committee. So, I think there certainly is a cross-party nonpartisan coalition devoted to our Constitution.”

Then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy refused to allow Schiff to serve on the House Intelligence Committee in January. The House of Representatives censured Schiff for making false claims that former President Donald Trump colluded with Russia during his 2016 presidential campaign.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.

For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.

Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America’s closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young “woke” LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn’t think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?

It turns out there’s one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.

All of this and much more is completely exposed in November’s issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship’s Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.

WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
