Former President TrumpDonald TrumpWarren says Republican party ‘eating itself and it is discovering that the meal is poisonous’ More than 75 Asian, LGBTQ groups oppose anti-Asian crime bill McConnell says he’s ‘great admirer’ of Liz Cheney but mum on her removal MORE and many of his allies have continued to push election fraud conspiracy theories that Cheney has been speaking out against. Her criticisms led her to be removed from her House leadership position on Wednesday.
Cheney continued her monologue on Fox News reiterating her phrase the “Big Lie” when describing claims of the stolen election and says there is a “danger” in perpetuating it.
“If we want to be able to defeat the really bad Biden policies, we have to attract voters back to us … the voters who left us by making clear we know the election wasn’t stolen and we are going to abide by the rule of law,” Cheney said.
Cheney denied having plans to run in 2024 when asked about a prior comment in which she said she would fight another Trump presidency.
“What I think is really important is that we make sure the former president — because we know what he’s capable of, because we know what he continues to do and because we know how important it is for us to advance Republican ideals — that he never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney said.
