(PresidentialWire.com)- Controversial so-called “Republican” congresswoman Liz Cheney, who represents Wyoming, claimed last week that President Donald Trump’s 74 million voters were “misled,” and dismissed the very serious concerns that millions of Americans have about election integrity.
Cheney told Fox News Sunday that House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, along with Rep. Elise Stefanik who replaced her as the House GOP Conference Chair, is “complicit” in what she calls a “big lie.” Cheney has repeatedly and falsely claimed that Republicans are lying if they say that there is evidence of fraud and misconduct in the last presidential election.
The comments come after House Republicans spent only four minutes voting to remove her from her position as the third-highest-ranking Republican, following her unhinged remarks about former President Trump, her vote to impeach the former president, and her repeated siding with Democrats on the issue of election integrity.
“Former President Trump continues to be a real danger. What he’s doing and what he’s saying, his claims, his refusal to accept decisions by the courts, his claims continued as recently as yesterday that somehow this election was stolen,” Cheney said.
“Those millions of people that you mentioned who supported the president have been misled. They’ve been betrayed. And certainly as we see his continued action to attack our democracy, his continued refusal to accept the results of the last election, you see that ongoing danger,” she added.
But Rep. Stefanik, who supports President Donald Trump’s agenda to make the Republican Party a multi-ethnic working-class party, said that Rep. Cheney is “looking backwards.”
Meanwhile, Stefanik added that Republicans are “looking forward” and are “unified.”
“And we are talking about conservative principles. President Trump is an important voice in the Republican Party. We are working as one team,” she added.
Cheney also suggested that she believes Rep. McCarthy will be subpoenaed over a phone call he had with President Donald Trump on January 6th, the day of the Washington, D.C. riot.
Reports recently revealed how Cheney would attempt to take over the Republican Party with her establishment take on conservatism. Failing that, the reports suggest, she may form a new third party with as many as 100 Republicans (elected and previously elected) who don’t support the Republican Party under Trump’s leadership.
