Elected in 2016 with more than 60% of the vote, Liz Cheney was one of the rising stars in the Republican Party. Four later, in 2020, she won nearly 70% of the vote. Everything changes on January 6, 2021. The insurrection at the capitol does not pass.

According to her, Donald Trump betrayed the constitution. He will now be the number one enemy of the country in these eyes and she will do everything in her power to prevent him from entering the Oval Office once and for all.

During the commission of inquiry into the events of January 6 – of which she is the vice-president – ​​she does not mince words: President Trump summoned the crowd and lit the fuse for the attack. She holds him responsible for the failed coup.

Despite insults, intimidation and even death threats from supporters of Donald Trump, Liz Cheney does not waver. On the contrary, it multiplies its attacks against the former president and warns the Americans.

These Trump lies that claim the election was stolen are a cancer threatening our republic. »

His rival Harriett Hageman, 60, a lawyer by training, repeats the same diatribe as the former president:

Absolutely, the 2020 election was stolen to keep Donald Trump out of re-election. »

It has become the magic phrase to open Donald Trump’s cave and get elected within the Republican camp, or rather the camp Trumpist.

And the numbers are worrying. According to washington postof the six pivotal states in the 2020 elections—Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania—two-thirds of Republican candidates do not recognize the 2020 ballot results.

Harriet Hageman all smiles.

Many fear that if the results of the 2024 presidential elections are close, the newly elected officials in the pay of Donald Trump will give in to pressure to falsify the results, to the benefit of Donald Trump. In Georgia, in November 2020, the former president was begging Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger over the phone to find him more than 11,000 votes.

For Liz Cheney, America cannot remain free if it rejects the truth.

Like father like daughter

Dick Cheney, former vice-president under George W. Bush does not mince his words either and goes to the rescue of his daughter.

In 246 years of history, there has been no greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump. »

Who would have thought twenty years ago that this neo-conservative, architect of the war on terrorism and who supported the war in Iraq, would one day say that the greatest threat to the country would come from within?

There is no dead hand with the former host of the White House. Dick Cheney calls Donald Trump a “coward” and says “a real man” would never lie to his constituents. He describes his daughter as a “fighter” who will not let go of her prey and will sooner or later win against Donald Trump.

Since the commission of January 6, Liz Cheney has revealed herself as a charismatic political figure, so much so that many perceive her as a potential candidate for the presidential elections of 2024 who would oppose her directly to Donald Trump.

Over and over she repeated that, whatever the struggle, it is a battle the country cannot afford to lose, it is due to the founding fathers of the constitution.

To these Republican colleagues, she has this message:

There will come a day when Donald Trump will no longer be there, but your dishonor will remain. »

A quote from Liz Cheney, Representative from Wyoming

Even if she loses her Wyoming seat, perhaps a brighter political future awaits her.
