(PresidentialHill.com)- Great news for the Republican Party as they might lose another warmonger “RINO.” Liz Cheney reportedly said that she was going to leave the GOP if Trump is the 2024 presidential nominee. Talking at the Texas Tribune Festival last month, Cheney went further to say that she was going to do everything she could so that Kari Lake will not win her gubernatorial race in Arizona against Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.
“I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office,” Cheney (R-Wyo.) said at the Texas Tribune Festival. “I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, make sure he’s not the nominee. And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”
“I am going to do everything I can to make sure that Kari Lake is not elected,” she also said, confirming that she was going to help Hobbs campaign.
Cheney was defeated by Trump-endorsed challenger Harriet Hageman in Wyoming’s Congressional primary race after her staunch anti-Trump stances, including her role in the partisan January 6 committee which she has vowed to serve to get to the bottom of the deadly insurrection incited by Trump.
“One of the things that has surprised me the most about my work on this committee is how sophisticated the plan was that Donald Trump was involved in and oversaw every step of the way,” Cheney said. “It was a multipart plan that he oversaw, he was involved in personally and directly.”
“While leaders in Congress were begging him, ‘Please, tell the mob to go home,’ Donald Trump wouldn’t,” Cheney continued. “And just set the politics aside for a minute and think to yourself, ‘What kind of human being does that?’”
The committee is set to begin its ninth hearing in the coming weeks after wrapping up some final work. Cheney has signaled that this hearing will likely not be the last one, despite being contradicted by Chair Bennie Thompson.
