Skip to comments.Wyoming GOP Blasts Liz Cheney for 'Aligning Herself with Leftists'
Posted on 01/14/2021 2:37:27 PM PST by Kaslin
It seems Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has ticked off Republicans in her state. The at-large representative voted with Democrats to impeach President Trump following last week's riot at the Capitol.
The FBI is only beginning its investigation of last week's riot, but the lack of findings didn't stop Liz Cheney from joining House Democrats to hold the president responsible for the violence.
Following Cheney's vote to impeach the president, the Wyoming Republican Party said in a statement that never before has the state party seen "this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans." According to the party, "the anger and frustration" is "palpable in the comments" they have received.
"Our telephone has not stopped ringing, our email is filling up, and our website has seen more traffic than at any previous time. The consensus is clear that those who are reaching out to the Party vehemently disagree with Representative Cheney’s decision and actions," the statement reads.
The party said they believe it's important for elected officials to respect and represent their constituents and called Cheney's vote to impeach Trump a "true travesty for Wyoming and the country."
In an effort to share just some of the overwhelming feedback with Cheney, the party summarized some of the comments they received from angry Republicans in the state: Cheney denied President Trump due process, she judged "evidence" before it was presented and available, she ignored 70 percent of Wyoming voters who voted to re-elect Trump, and put the interests of beltway conservatives ahead of her constituents.
Cheney ignored Trump's comments asking his supporters to protest "peacefully," she sided with Democrats who egged on leftists rioters for months last year, aligned herself with leftists skewing facts about the Capitol riot, allowed herself to be used by Democrats to smear the entire conservative movement, and allowed another impeachment circus to distract Congress from representing the interests truly important to the people of Wyoming.
Nine other GOP representatives followed Cheney's lead in voting to impeach the president a second time. The lone article of impeachment is not expected to be taken up by the Senate until sometime after Joe Biden's inauguration. It's unlikely enough Republicans in the Senate will join Democrats to achieve the two-thirds majority needed to convict the president, which would render Trump ineligible for a second term.
Congressional Republicans have called on Cheney to step down as House GOP Conference Chair.
69.94% of Wyoming voters voted for Donald Trump in 2020, the highest percentage Trump received in any state.
She does not represent the GOP electorate in that state and they should absolutely boot her out during next year’s primary for a Republican that does.
PRIMARY HER OUT ASAP.......
So y’all going to kick her out of the party?
Dump the Looney Liz
Did voters in Wyoming (which Trump carried in a landslide) have any indication Cheney would turn against him as she did?
Wyoming will remove Liz Cheney in 2022 primary.
Here is why:
1. Wyoming law stipulates that parties conduct open primaries for congressional and state-level offices. While a voter must be affiliated with a political party in order to participate in its primary election, any voter, regardless of previous partisan affiliation, may change his or her affiliation on the day of the primary.
2. Wyoming gave 193,559 votes to Trump and only 73,491 votes to Biden.
3. In the 2022 Wyoming Primary even if all Democrat voters cross over and vote for Cheney, that will not save her sorry butt.
Kevin McCarthy is protecting her. GOP leadership is thick as thieves.
THROW HER OUT OF THE PARTY, and make it Very Public.
Cheney. The state lizard of Wyoming.
Too bad the stupid bitch doesn’t care about protecting the absentee ballots of the men and woman in uniform that she wants to send to fight and die for her.
“””Kevin McCarthy is protecting her. GOP leadership is thick as thieves.”””
So true. I suspect it will be more difficult to take away
Cheney’s power position in the House, than it will be for Wyoming voters to kick Cheney out of her House in Teton Village.
The amount of primary challenges is going to be awesome in 2022. I can’ hardly wait for it.
I wanted them to say they were going to primary her .
Did he protect her before or after the letter was released? McCarthy needs to be primaried as well.
I am curios:Do you think President Trump deserved to be impeached?
I guess everyone who wants to primary her (or anyone else) and vote her out in 2022 think the 2020 election was legitimate? How could anyone trust the process after all the fraud that was exposed? What do you think, this was not done in the past for other candidates? If the deep state wants Cheney, that’s who wins. If you are not awake now you never will be.
If she really had any honor she would resign her seat, disavow WY GOP party and run again in 2 years as a Democrat or Independent.
Amazing how their honor never compels them to give up their paycheck.
