House Republicans can dance around this all they want but the ‘truth’ IS the Wyoming House Rep, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney , will be changed out for standing up and saying that former Republican President Donald Trump continues to ‘lie’ when he says the 2020 Presidential election was ‘stolen’ from him…
The whole thing is actually sad and distressing ….
The leadership of a political party are bending themselves like pretzels to support a man that does not have a firm grip on reality…And was turned out of office by a margin of Seven Million American voters…

Ms. Stefanik, 36, whose voting record is far less conservative than Ms. Cheney’s, became a vocal supporter of Mr. Trump in recent years, playing a prominent role defending him during his first impeachment trial and voting in January to overturn the results of the 2020 election, which he lost….
