The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, she is serving as the second chair of a panel created by the House of Representatives to investigate the Jan. 6 invasion of the Capitol.

A member of the Republican Party, he took a stand against Donald Trump and supported the FBI (US Federal Police) after documents were seized at the former president’s private resort, Mar-a-Lago, in Florida. . Liz Cheney, 56, has received several death threats in recent months for her criticism of Trump.

On Tuesday night, the congresswoman lost the Republican primary in her home state of Wyoming to the president’s running mate, Harriet Hackman. He cannot run for a new seat in Congress in the November assembly elections.

Sensing defeat, Liz Cheney sent a message to Trump. “Beginning on January 6th, I said I would do everything to make sure Donald Trump never comes anywhere near the Oval Office again, and I mean it,” he said.

Yesterday, he admitted he was “thinking” about running for the White House in 2024 and announced the formation of a political action group. “I’m thinking about something. I’ll make a decision in the next few months,” he said during an interview on NBC’s “Today Show.” In recent months, Trump has vented his anger at Cheney, whom he has called “disloyal” and “a failure.” Yesterday, the former president celebrated his party’s co-election defeat as “a wonderful result for America”. “Now she can finally disappear into the depths of political oblivion, where I’m sure she’ll be much happier than she is now.”

Conspiracy Party

Adam Kinzinger, a Republican congressman, spared no criticism of the party. “It sends a very strong message that it is no longer a party committed to truth. It is a party committed to conspiracy,” he said. In an interview with the same network, he hailed Cheney as “a very determined and dogged politician.” “She’ll chase Donald Trump to the gates of hell, that’s right,” he snapped.

According to Allan Lichtman, a political historian at American University (in Washington), Cheney’s defeat “marked the end of conservatism in the Republican Party.” “Cheney is a solid conservative on almost every issue. He was defeated because he refused to follow Trump’s dangerous authoritarianism,” he explained to the Courier.

He recalled that under the president’s administration, almost all of the principles that conservative Republicans claimed to defend disappeared: personal morality, personal and fiscal responsibility, limited government, and respect for tradition. “They were transformed by a culture war and a quest for power at all costs.”

Lichtman doesn’t think Liz Cheney has much of a future running for office in the Republican Party. “But he can run for president to get a platform for his ideas. Imagine a debate between Trump and Cheney!” He said. Thomas E. Patterson, a professor of government and journalism at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Governors, said in a statement that Cheney’s participation on the House committee positioned him to lead the opposition to Trump within the Republican Party.

“This could include an independent campaign for president, which could undermine Trump’s chances of victory in 2024. He is not an alternative candidate for many Republicans and is unlikely to win the party’s nomination. But Liz Cheney as an independent candidate could. The mogul is unfit to be president, undermining Trump’s chances of winning the Republican vote. believes that, but doesn’t want to vote for a Democrat.”

Analyze

“Liz Cheney’s position within the GOP took a turning point when Wyoming voted in 2021 to impeach Donald Trump. Her participation on a panel investigating the Jan. 6 capitol invasion cemented Republican opposition to Cheney.”

“There’s nothing Republicans can do to retaliate against Liz Cheney. She’ll serve more than four months as the vice chairman of the Capitol invasion committee. And she’ll have the following, media presence and plenty of resources to get her message out. Liz Cheney is making history that doesn’t depend on being one of America’s 435 representatives. He has his sights set on preserving American democracy and returning the Republican Party to its historic roots.
