She’s Right of course….
Rep. Cheney of Wyoming is not likely to be a House member next year unless a LOT of Democrats in her state vote for her….
She is hammering Donald Trump, and THAT is makiing her radioactive politically back home to Republicans…
But her point about her party leader should not be dismmised so fast….
Donald Trump is being hammered by expose ‘ s from the House Select Committee holding public media hearings on Trump & Co. actions on and around Jan.6 2022, the day of the protest/riot/violence at the Nation’s Capitol Building…The Committee is laying out a case for the US Attorney Gewneral to indict Trump on multiple Federal charges along with his cronies…..
Trump, who has not stopped crying about Joe Biden beating him, is also being mentioed as under investigation by the FBI on having secret files taken from the White House to his Florida home after leaving office….
Trump will appear before the New York Attoreny General’s lawyers on a civil case that might turn criminal involving possibe real estate fraud that the Manhattan DA has put aside but that the NY AG could pick up….
The Fulton County, Georgia DA has impanelled a Specail Grand Jury to investigate if Trump’s action’s concerning Georgia election vote tampering is strong enough for another garnd jury to pass up criminal indictments ….
On top of ALL opf this legal stuff?
We have Ron DeSantis leading a growing list of 2024 GOP Presidentail nomination sweepstakes wannabee’s….
The Big guy is down in the polls among all Americans , and now is coming in behind DeSantis in a ever increasing numbers of Republican polls……
Make no mistake…
LiZ Cheney IS a Republican…
Just because she’ on Trump’s case does NOT make sympathic to Democarts….
(We now her mussing about her own possible 2024 Presidental run)
But the lady makes a good point….
Battered and possibly on the verge of fighting the legal battle of his life?
His party can ill afford to make DEmocrats happy with a 2024 Donald Trump second try for the job he lost….
Run Donald Run?
Cheney emphasized that the committee’s aims were not political, but also that the Justice Department should not refrain from prosecuting Trump out of concerns about political optics if the evidence warrants criminal prosecution.
“I think it’s a much graver constitutional threat if a president can engage in these kinds of activities, and the majority of the president’s party looks away, or we as a country decide we’re not actually going to take our constitutional obligations seriously,” Cheney said.
Cheney went on to express grave concerns about the idea of Trump running as the GOP presidential nominee for a third time.
“I think there’s no question, I mean, a man as dangerous as Donald Trump can absolutely never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again,” Cheney said.
The Republican Party, she said, could not survive if Trump were its 2024 presidential nominee.
“Millions of people, millions of Republicans have been betrayed by Donald Trump. And that is a really painful thing for people to recognize and to admit, but it’s absolutely the case,” Cheney said. “And they’ve been betrayed by him, by ‘the big lie,’ and by what he continues to do and say to tear apart our country and tear apart our party.”….
