She’s losing her mind.
Liz Cheney, the former Republican representative from Wyoming, firmly stated on Tuesday that she has no intention of taking any action that would benefit Donald Trump. When questioned about the possibility of running for the presidency as a third-party candidate, she made it clear that such a move was not in her plans.
In transcript provided by The Hill, Cheney stated, “I’m not going to do anything that helps Donald Trump, and I think that I’ll make a decision about what I do and what comes next later this year. I feel very strongly about how important it is that we not let slip away what is so special and magnificent about this nation.”
In addition to her firm stance against Donald Trump, Cheney emphasized her primary focus on preventing the former president from returning to the White House rather than prioritizing her own future plans. As a vocal critic of Trump, she is dedicated to ensuring he does not regain the presidency.
Cheney stated, “I’m not announcing anything here today, Lester. But the way I’m thinking about where we are and what has to be done is much less about what should I do in terms of am I going to be a candidate or not and much more about stopping Donald Trump whatever that takes. But also helping elect other good candidates down-ballot.”
She added, “If you look at the polls, [Trump] clearly is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination. I think that nominating him would result in the republican party splintering, as it should.”
Cheney, who was among the ten House Republicans who voted in favor of impeaching Trump for his role in the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, faced consequences in Wyoming’s GOP primary last year as she was removed from her seat.
Following her removal from office, Cheney has entertained the possibility of launching a third-party campaign for the presidency in the future. In September of last year, she expressed her intention not to run as a Republican candidate, leading to speculation that she may position herself as an independent contender for the White House.
In response to inquiries about Trump’s recent indictment, which encompassed 37 charges related to mishandling classified documents, Cheney unequivocally stated that there is no doubt about his unsuitability for the presidency. She further expressed her belief that a second federal indictment concerning Trump’s involvement in the January 6 attacks would be justified, emphasizing that it was the basis for their criminal referrals.
