Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming was stripped of her leadership position in the Republican Party this Wednesday after a closed-door vote. Her constant antagonism against former President Trump is one of the main reasons behind the decision, besides lacking the courage to face the radical agenda of the Democrats.
Cheney was chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, which involves leading the party’s communication within Congress. She was the third most powerful Republican, after Steve Scalise and Kevin McCarthy.
Cheney made headlines in January when she confirmed to the media that she would vote in favor of impeachment against Trump for the Jan. 6 riots on Capitol Hill. Since then, the representative has made it her focus to criticize Donald Trump, setting aside her actual duties as party leader to counter Democratic policies that are moving the country toward socialism.
Despite the blowback she received, Cheney was defiant:
“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney said after the vote. “We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language. We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the Constitution, and I think it’s very important that we make sure whomever we elect, is somebody who will be faithful to the Constitution.”
Former President Trump reacted to the news immediately:
“Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being,” Trump said in a statement. “I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our country. She is a talking point for Democrats.”
Both Trump, McCarthy, and Scalise endorsed New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, a moderate Republican whose profile soared as a leading Trump supporter during the first impeachment trial, to replace Cheney in Congress.
Cheney initially enjoyed the support of Republicans in the House, who in January also voted to strip her of her position for her vote against Trump, but there were not enough votes to make it happen.
However, as time went on, while Republicans were focused on retaking the House majority in the midterm elections, Cheney continued her rhetoric against Trump, losing focus on resisting the radical policies of the Biden Administration.
Former President Trump still enjoys the support of the working class, and the 75 million votes he legitimately won in the last election are not something the Republican Party will forget.
Cheney’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party
According to a National Pulse report, Rep. Liz Cheney’s husband’s law firm serves several clients connected to the Chinese Communist Party, including companies linked to the regime’s military, and hires former CCP officials to shore up its extensive practice in China.
His firm has offices in Shanghai and Beijing and has worked with companies that the U.S. State Department has described as “tools” of the Chinese Communist Party, such as its People’s Liberation Army.
His indirect relationship with the Chinese regime, the number one enemy of the free world, having served as a tool of the Democrats in dividing the party among the millions of Americans who support Trump are indeed more than enough reasons for Cheney to walk away from politics within the Republican Party.
