The Heat: Prominent Trump critic loses while investigations heat up

The Heat

Eight of the 10 Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives who voted to impeach Donald Trump will not be returning to Congress next year.

Four opted to retire. The remaining four lost their Republican primary. The latest was Liz Cheney — a fierce critic of the former president who has played a prominent role in the Congressional investigation of the January 6 assault on the Capitol. Cheney’s defeat comes as the Justice Department’s investigation of Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents, and other investigations are heating up.

To discuss:

  • Gene Rossi is a former U.S. attorney and federal prosecutor.
  • Brandon Brice is a columnist and host of “The Brice is Right” radio program.
  • Joel Rubin served as a U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Obama administration.
  • Adolfo Franco is an attorney and Republican strategist.
