Liz Cheney’s Audio Shreds Harriet Hageman’s Election Night Phone Message
ClaimRep. Liz Cheney’s mission delivered a recording Wednesday that seemed to expose Harriet Hageman’s case that Cheney said “Hi, Harriet” and hung up in a telephone message after Hageman won their Wyoming GOP essential. (Tune in underneath.)
The Donald Trump-supported Hageman told Sean Hannity of Fox News that Cheney “left an extremely short two-second message on my cellphone” Tuesday that offered no concession “or whatever else,” Mediaite revealed.
However, Cheney’s mission later delivered what it said was a recording of the call to Politico, destroying Hageman’s idea that Cheney was a bad sport.
In that sound, an assistant can be heard telling Cheney that The Associated Press had called the political race for Hagemen, trailed by Cheney’s words:
“Hello, Harriet, Liz Cheney calling. It is around 8:13 on Tuesday the sixteenth. I’m calling to surrender the political race and compliment you on the success. Much obliged. Bye.”
EXCLUSIVE: I’ve obtained audio from the Cheney campaign of the concession voicemail Rep. Liz Cheney’s left for Harriet Hageman last night.

A Hageman representative countered by delivering video to Politico of Hageman paying attention to the directive for two seconds before the sound seems to cut off.
Cheney told Politico she endeavored to call Hageman a few times prior to leaving the message as Cheney was going to make that big appearance at her own political race night occasion.
NEW: Rep. Liz Cheney tells me her concession call to Harriet Hageman ended up being a "clear and direct" voicemail that she left before she went on stage last night, after trying multiple times to get in touch w/ her.
Cheney says she still has not heard anything back.

The loss of Cheney, who served three terms, was a done deal after she casted a ballot to indict Trump for instigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurgence at the U.S. Legislative hall.

Indeed, even in disgrace, she promised to keep attempting to guarantee that Trump “is never remotely close to the Oval Office, and I would not joke about this.”
