Liz Cheney rips Trump for stolen election claims despite threats of primary challenge


Rep. Liz Cheney has not been cowed by threats of a Republican primary challenge in 2022, insisting that former President Donald Trump’s claims of a stolen November election undermine democracy in the United States.

Trump and company are vowing to oust Cheney in next year’s Republican primary in Wyoming in retaliation for her Jan. 13 vote to impeach the former president because she holds him responsible for the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol by his grassroots supporters. But the congresswoman is undaunted. She said Tuesday that Trump’s actions during the post-election period threatened America’s freedom at home and jeopardized U.S. influence abroad while severely diminishing the Republican Party.

“The president and many around him pushed this idea that the election had been stolen. And that is a dangerous claim; it wasn’t true,” Cheney said during a virtual town hall hosted by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, a conservative think tank.
