Tucker: We’re Not Accusing Liz Cheney of Robbing Liquor Stores But How Did She Get So Rich?
CARLSON: “But before she heads to retirement, we thought we would ask a pretty simple question: How did Liz Cheney get so rich? She’s been a member of Congress for six years. So when she took office in 2017, her net worth was estimated at $7 million, which is a lot for someone with no skills, but that’s what she had. Now she’s worth more than $44 million, according to Center for Responsive Politics, which looked at her financial disclosure forms. Now, probably an honest explanation for all of this, we're not accusing her of robbing liquor stores, but you have to wonder, how did Liz Cheney make more than $36 million in six years of public service? That’s $6 million a year. Good gig. She didn’t report any earned income, gifts or transactions on her disclosure form. Her top listed assets were Citibank, $3 million, and money from her husband's law firm Lathan & Watkins. There's also a family trust, we assume that accounted for a lot of the case, but we don’t know. Whatever the case, it’s not Wyoming’s problem anymore. After tonight, Liz Cheney is going back to where she’s actually from, suburban Virginia. Probably running for president, too, and we look forward to that with great joy. Maybe she can be Kamala Harris’s running mate."
