Liz Cheney Threatens Voters

Cheney is doing everything to destroy Republicans and it’s shameful.

Former Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who was once a prominent figure in House Republican leadership, expressed worries about the potential threat posed by a GOP majority in 2025 to the United States over the weekend.

While staunchly advocating for the traditional principles and ideals associated with the Republican Party, Cheney voiced reservations about the current trajectory of the party, asserting that it has not given due emphasis to the Constitution. Speaking with John Dickerson on “CBS Sunday Morning,” aired on CBS News, she underscored the perceived threat should Republicans secure the majority in January 2025.

Cheney, known for her outspoken opposition to former President Trump since the Capitol attacks on January 6, 2021, is set to release a forthcoming book titled “Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning.” The book critically examines the state of the Republican Party and its response to the Capitol attack.

After serving as the vice chair of the House select committee investigating the January 6 attacks, Cheney experienced a primary loss in August 2022 due to her consistent criticism of her party and the former president.

In her upcoming book, Cheney outlines how Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), previously a relatively unknown congressman, played a role in laying the groundwork for Trump’s attempts to overturn the election. Cheney accused Johnson of repeatedly ignoring court rulings on state and federal elections to fulfill Trump’s objectives.

When asked about the possibility of Johnson becoming Speaker in January 2025 during the certification of the 2024 presidential election, Cheney expressed concern, stating that the country is facing an existential crisis. She emphasized the need to prevent a scenario where a Republican majority oversees an election potentially thrown into the House of Representatives.

Furthermore, Cheney issued a warning about the United States “sleepwalking into dictatorship” if Trump were to be reelected.
