Tucker Carlson: How Did Liz Cheney Make $33 Million During Only Six Years In Congress?

FNC's Tucker Carlson asked Tuesday night how it could be that Rep. Liz Cheney's net worth increased from $7 million to $44 million during her six years in public service as a member of Congress <blockquote>TUCKER CARLSON: Well, it's primary night in the state of Wyoming, and you know what that means. It means that very soon, Liz Cheney will have an endowed chair at AEI, writing a column for National Review, and writing a book titled "Democracy." She's going to lose, it looks like, by a large margin, because God does exist. But before she heads to retirement, we thought we would ask a pretty simple question: How does Liz Cheney get so a rich? She's been a member of Congress for six years. <b>When she took office in 2017, her net worth was estimated at seven million dollars, which is a lot for someone with no skills, but that's what she had. Now, she's worth more than forty-four million dollars, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which looked at her financial disclosure forms. </b> There's 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 thirty-six million dollars in six years of public service? That's six million a year. Huh! Good gig! She didn't report any earned income, gifts, or transactions on her disclosure form. Her top listed assets were Citibank, three million dollars, and money from her husband's law firm... also three million. There's also money from a family trust, we assume that accounted for a lot of the cash, 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, and we look forward to that with great joy. She can be Kamala Harris's running mate.</blockquote>
