Former Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) responded sharply to Donald Trump’s accusation on Tuesday that she destroyed evidence related to his discredited Jan. 6 defense.

“Seems like someone is starting 2024 hangry,” Cheney remarked.

Last year, Cheney gained national attention, and irked the former president, with claims in her book “Oath and Honor” that Trump ceased eating after the 2021 Capitol attack.

On Tuesday, Cheney once again took a dig at Trump’s eating habits, suggesting that hunger drove him to repeat a debunked assertion, originally refuted by the Washington Post, that Nancy Pelosi rejected his offer of 10,000 soldiers to safeguard the Capitol.

Trump also alleged that Cheney, who served as vice president of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attacks, tampered with evidence.

Cheney countered by sharing publicly available evidence from the hearings, ridiculing Trump’s claim, and criticizing the style of the Truth Social message.

“Lying about the evidence in all caps won’t change the facts,” she wrote. “A public trial will show it all.”

Trump is currently facing criminal charges related to election interference in Georgia and Washington D.C., maintaining a plea of not guilty in both instances.
