Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., faced criticism for referring to convicted Jan. 6 Capitol rioters as “hostages” and declining to commit to certifying the results of the next election.

She defended her voting against certifying the 2020 election results in Pennsylvania and echoed Trump’s rhetoric about the election.

Former Rep. Liz Cheney criticized Stefanik’s comments and accused her of repeating Trump’s disgraceful rhetoric. (Trending: Michelle Obama Admits Being ‘Terrified’ Ahead of 2024)

“I have concerns about the treatment of January 6 hostages,” said Rep. Stefanik.

“We have a rule in Congress of oversight over our treatments of prisoners. And I believe that we’re seeing the weaponization of the federal government against not just President Trump, but we’re seeing it against conservatives,” she continued.

Stefanik claimed to have uncovered “unconstitutional acts circumventing the state legislature and unilaterally changing election law” in Pennsylvania after the 2020 election.

“We will see if this is a legal and valid election,” said Stefanik about 2024.

“What we’re seeing so far is that Democrats are so desperate they’re trying to remove President Trump from the ballot. That is the suppression of the American people. And the Supreme Court is taking that case up in February. That should be a nine to zero to allow President Trump to appear on the ballot because that’s the American people’s decision to make this November,” she explained.

Former Rep. Liz Cheney said, “If you go and you look at what individuals have been convicted for who are incarcerated, you’ll find, you know, extensively these are people who were involved in violence against police officers in the assault on the Capitol.”

“And it is really it’s disgraceful for Donald Trump to be saying what he’s saying. And then for those who are attempting to enable him or attempting to further their own political careers to repeat it. It’s a disgrace,” she continued.

MSNBC host Alex Witt said, “Stefanik hit almost all of the MAGA talking points.”

Witt continued, “Couple questions here: I’m curious, might they be coordinating? Do you think she reaches out and says, ‘What kind of verbiage should I use?’ Is she auditioning to be Trump’s vice president? Can you see her appeal for Trump?”

Former Rep. Dave Jolly said that “there is no one in America running harder for Trump’s vice presidential slot than Elise Stefanik.”

“You recognize even how she increases the pace of her words when she was asked to prove her loyalty to Donald Trump,” added the former lawmaker.

“I think we should prepare as a country, that if Donald Trump does indeed lose to Joe Biden — the presidential nominee himself — Donald Trump will not accept a defeat. Elise Stefanik and others may not either,” he concluded.

There were also speculations about Stefanik’s appearance being an audition to be Trump’s running mate.

Former Rep. Dave Jolly suggested that Stefanik is running hard for Trump’s vice presidential slot and might not accept a defeat if Trump loses.
