She says she will devote the next two years to preventing Trump from returning to the White House
Rep. Liz Cheney vowed on Sunday to oppose Republican candidates supporting former President Donald Trump's false claims of a stolen 2020 election, saying Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley were “unfit” to serve in the Senate after they voted in favor of cancellation of the results of the presidential elections.
Cheney, who is Trump's top critic and vice chair of a congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack by supporters of the ex-president on the Capitol, told ABC that widespread delegitimacy of the election could, if left unchecked, undermine the US constitutional order.
The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney has already said she will seek to prevent Trump from returning to the White House in 2024 over the next two years. According to her, it is possible that she will nominate her own candidacy for the presidency. Cheney declined to tell ABC whether she would run for the Republican or any other party if she chose to run.
who denies the (legitimacy) of the election,” Cheney said in an interview taped last week, days after she lost the primary to a Trump-backed candidate.
“Some of those who denied the (legitimacy) of the elections, were promoted to really important positions all over the country. And I'm going to work against these people. I will work to support their opponents,” Liz Cheney emphasized.
