What is the real reason that Liz Cheney hates Donald Trump? I can’t believe she believes Trump incited a riot at the Capitol because although she is evil, she’s not stupid. But, there is a reason she might have to declare war on Trump even though it ended her political career. Money. President Trump cracked down on China. Even though she gave a speech slamming China, her husband makes a lot of money representing them.
Her husband Philip Perry’s law firm, Latham & Watkins (LW), is one of the largest law firms in the world where he is a partner. His firm represents Chinese companies that are tied to the Chinese military. Cheney is a real leader on the J6 Committee, but some of the Democrats on the committee are worried because her extreme actions could reflect badly on the Democrats in the upcoming election.
John Solomon reported at Just the News on the company where Cheney’s husband is a partner:
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) called on the U.S. to stand up to the “generational threat” posed by China while unveiling a major report on Beijing’s “malign behavior” at the same time her husband’s law firm was working on behalf of companies linked to China’s military, intelligence, and security services.
As Cheney stood at the podium, her husband Philip Perry’s law firm was cashing in on legal and lobbying work that his employer — Latham & Watkins (LW), one of the largest law firms in the world — was doing for a host of Chinese companies, some of which were involved in the kind of activity that Cheney was warning had to be stopped.
All of LW’s work discussed in this article was legal, and Perry didn’t work directly on these accounts. But as a partner at the firm, he benefits and profits from all its work.
Perry’s firm’s work for Chinese entities and countries whose human rights abuses and authoritarian rule have troubled the U.S. for years seems to conflict with his wife’s frequent calls for America to stand up to autocratic regimes like China. The dynamic is one familiar to longtime observers of Washington, D.C.: a power couple calling out the very behavior from which they benefit.
What Solomon never mentioned is that Latham and Watkins also represent Michael Sussmann, Perkins Coie,, Mark Elias, the Clinton Campaign, and Hillary for America. That would create a lot of conflict of interest because they would probably know what part these entities played in the spying of President Trump. This law firm represents many shady characters. Maybe that’s why Cheney has gone off the rails. She doesn’t want Trump back in office where he could crack dow2n on CHina and cost her hubby money from China. You decide.
