Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney betrayed her constituents by siding with Democrats to impeach former President Donald Trump and negate the will of her state’s voters. With upwards of 77 percent of Republicans against her re-election, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney stands shoulder-to-shoulder with liberal extremists to impugn the integrity of Mr. Trump and push the left’s narrative that conservative Americans are domestic terrorists.
Cheney has emerged as a national conservative embarrassment for her continued support of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s far-left agenda. She is widely considered left of RINOs such as Utah Senator Mitt Romney, and upwards of 26 percent of Americans say she is a liberal. It’s not so much that Cheney hoodwinked Wyoming voters into believing she would vote in their best interest. What adds insult to this injury is the fact she has aided and abetted socialist insurrectionists to lead a January 6 committee designed to prevent Mr. Trump from running for 2024 re-election — and declaring open season on conservatives everywhere.
“Democrats have crossed a red line. This is banana republic stuff. They are weaponizing Congress’s subpoena power to spy on their colleagues without a shred of evidence. They have done irreversible damage to American democracy, and they must face consequences,” Indiana Rep. Jim Banks reportedly said. “Speaker Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Adam Kinzinger, Bennie Thompson, Liz Cheney, and their cohorts have abused the power of the January 6th commission. When Republicans take back the House in 2022, every Democrat and Pelosi Republican on the January 6th Commission should be stripped of their committee assignments.”
Wyoming Republicans have already called for sweeping censure measures against Cheney. County-level GOP leaders are quickly passing resolutions indicating they no longer recognize her as their legitimate representative.
“You will no longer be recognized as the official Republican Congressional Representative by the Park County Republican Party,” Park County Republicans chairman Martin Kimmet reportedly wrote in a resolution. “In the immortal words of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump …‘You’re Fired!’”
GOP organizations in Uinta, Big Horn, Laramie, and Weston counties reportedly requested copies of the resolution with the intent to approve and publish a measure of their own. She had already been stripped of her Republican Conference position, and many disgruntled GOP members in Congress want Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to remove her from all committees. These are not unreasonable requests given her posts were intended to create a balance of political power between the two major parties. Washington, D.C. insiders also believe the Jan. 6 Commission will be weaponized against duly elected GOP members of Congress and consider Cheney a turncoat.
“This proposal is not because of a policy or political difference, but because some members have chosen to work with the Democrats to investigate and potentially remove Republican Members from the House,” Rep. Andy Biggs reportedly wrote in a letter to party leaders. “Many of the coming discussions will likely revolve around our defense against the Democrats’ perpetuation of the false narrative that January 6th was an insurrection and how to protect our own from their legally questionable investigative methods. Congresswoman Cheney and Congressman Kinzinger are two spies for the Democrats that we currently invite to the meetings, despite our inability to trust them.”
Cheney’s polling numbers have been flushed down the toilet, and every primary challenger is expected to garner more votes if she is foolish enough to humiliate herself by running. She will make her last stand violating her oath of office in disgrace.
