‘My Concerns Remain’ About Trump’s Peace Deal with Taliban: US Rep. Cheney
Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo, has expressed concern about the Trump administration’s peace deal with the Taliban during a hearing on Capitol Hill.
“I’ve read the documents and my concerns remain,” Cheney said during a House Armed Services Committee panel with top Army brass.
In an interview with Bret Baier, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News that the final agreement included “a commitment to break with Al Qaeda” by the Taliban.
But after reviewing two classified documents included in the peace deal, Cheney says she sees no evidence the Taliban have broken with Al Qaeda.
“I’m not going to talk about what’s in the documents, a number of them are classified, as you know, but the documents that have been sent to the Hill do not include those things,” Cheney said during the hearing.
“Those documents do not include in them the things that Secretary Pompeo said they would. So, my concerns still remain,” she added.
