In a recent interview with NBC News, she expressed that she had “concerns about the treatment of January 6 hostages” – meaning the 1,200 people arrested over the riot. According to Cheney, Stefanik will one day need to explain “how and why she morphed into a total crackpot.” The former Republican congresswoman believed that “history” and “our children deserve to know.”

Maryland Democrat Jamie Raskin attributed the “hostages” remark from Stefanik to her ambition. Raskin, who worked with Cheney as part of the House January 6 committee, asked, “Does her change of heart have anything to do with wanting to be Trump’s running mate?”

Raskin also wondered if Stefanik no longer believed that violence is “unacceptable” and should be “prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” Another name that is believed to be at the top of the consideration list for Trump’s running mate is South Carolina Senator Tom Scott.
