House GOP conference chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) sent a document to the whole House GOP conference in February against Democrat President Joe Biden’s amnesty plan which lifted at least a dozen passages nearly word-for-word from the Biden White House’s public “Fact Sheet” promoting the legislation.
The revelations are significant for a number of reasons. First and foremost, Cheney was spreading material lifted directly from the Biden White House to the whole House GOP conference. Secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, Cheney was sending House Republicans what was supposed to be information to arm them to fight against Democrats’ and Biden’s amnesty plan that were in fact actually talking points first publicly published on the Biden White House website to promote the exact same plan.
When reached for comment on the matter Tuesday, Cheney’s office said to Breitbart News that the document was not plagiarized. “I would push back on idea that it was ‘plagiarism,’ for starters,” Jeremy Adler, a Cheney spokesperson, told Breitbart News. “If you’ve seen the email, it specifically says the points about the proposal came from the White House. We were not taking the information and passing it off as our own or anything like that.”
In a follow-up email, Adler added: “It says in the document those points came from reports out of the White House.”

But nowhere in the three-page document does it say this information came from the Biden White House. And Cheney’s email to the House Republican conference did in fact attempt to pass off the document as a House GOP conference product — and makes no reference to the White House fact sheet in question.
The email, from Cheney’s official House email address sent to House GOP members and staff on Feb. 19, 2021, at 7:57 a.m., was her “Trailblazer” email she regularly blasts out to the conference. In it, the top of the “Top Takeaways” section is a criticism of Biden’s amnesty agenda and legislation. “President Biden’s Immigration Plan Unveiled Yesterday Would Leave Our Border Less Secure And Hurt Law-Abiding Americans,” Cheney’s email says.
The email includes several other details on immigration, and then it states that a linked and embedded document which Cheney says was “put together by the House Republican Conference” exposes the Biden amnesty plan.
Cheney wrote to members and staff in the House GOP conference to “please see the below background document put together by the House Republican Conference that summarizes what’s included in Democrats’ legislation.”
The document, images of which are embedded here, is also branded with the House GOP conference logo and does not state anywhere that these passages came from the Biden White House fact sheet.

When presented with this extra information about Cheney passing the document off as a conference product in the email, and about the GOP conference branding and lack of reference in the email or document to the Biden White House fact sheet, Adler issued a follow-up statement attacking this story. The statement included a link to the actual Cheney email from Feb. 19 published online, which again demonstrates that there is no reference to the Biden White House document from which the House GOP conference document lifts several passages.
