Rep. Cheney Stands By Her Decision To Stab Trump In The Back
The Dems were ridiculous to think that they could actually impeach Trump both times that they tried. They were warned that they didn't have a valid case, but they went forward with their impeachment attempts anyway. The Senate dismissed the charges in both cases because it was B.S. But unfortunately, it wasn't just Dems that were off their rockers, some Republican turncoats voted with House Dems. Rep Liz Cheney is one of the turncoats and when she was given a chance to apologize for her mistake, she doubled down saying she stands by her vote.
"Rep. Liz Cheney said in an interview with Punchbowl News Thursday that she will stand behind her vote to impeach former President Trump "every day of the week" as she faces multiple primary challengers in her 2022 reelection effort.
Cheney, R-Wyo., is the chair of the House Republican conference and has taken heat from many on the right over her vocal condemnation of Trump after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by a mob of his followers.
That has spurred Trump's wrath in multiple forums and triggered a handful of Republicans to announce primary challenges to her -- Trump said in a statement earlier this month he will endorse one of them soon.
But Cheney told Puncbbowl News that she has no plans to back away from her stance that impeaching Trump was the right thing to do.
"I'm confident I'm gonna win. It's gonna be, certainly, a challenging primary. I'm preparing for that right now. We've got multiple opponents," Cheney told the publication on a podcast that will be released in full later Thursday.
"I'm gonna fight hard and I'm not gonna take it for granted," she continued. "But I also think there are some pretty big constitutional issues at stake, and I think those are really important. So anybody who wants to get in that race and who wants to do it on the basis of debating me about whether or not President Trump should have been impeached, I'll have that debate every day of the week."
Cheney's own State censured her over the vote that she cast. The people that she is supposed to be representing don't even agree with her. But she still thinks she is going to win in the midterm elections.
