Skip to comments.Cheney says she'll campaign on impeaching Trump 'every day of the week' amid primary challenges

Rep. Liz Cheney said in an interview with Punchbowl News Thursday that she will stand behind her vote to impeach former President Trump "every day of the week" as she faces multiple primary challengers in her 2022 reelection effort.
Cheney, R-Wyo., is the chair of the House Republican conference and has taken heat from many on the right over her vocal condemnation of Trump after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by a mob of his followers.
That has spurred Trump's wrath in multiple forums and triggered a handful of Republicans to announce primary challenges to her -- Trump said in a statement earlier this month he will endorse one of them soon.
But Cheney told Puncbbowl News that she has no plans to back away from her stance that impeaching Trump was the right thing to do.
"I'm confident I'm gonna win. It's gonna be, certainly, a challenging primary. I'm preparing for that right now. We've got multiple opponents," Cheney told the publication on a podcast that will be released in full later Thursday.
"I'm gonna fight hard and I'm not gonna take it for granted," she continued. "But I also think there are some pretty big constitutional issues at stake, and I think those are really important. So anybody who wants to get in that race and who wants to do it on the basis of debating me about whether or not President Trump should have been impeached, I'll have that debate every day of the week."
The third-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives also said in a separate press call Wednesday that speculation she might not run for reelection is "wishful thinking." She said she is "absolutely dedicated" to "earning the votes of the people of Wyoming."

Fat loser she is.
This woman’s having a nervous breakdown.
All you need to know on this one:
The woman has a big hate, doesn’t she.
I had never thought of the Cheyney family as vengeful, sewage-worthy people, but I was wrong.
Gives going down with the ship a new dimension
Ah, Trump is not President
The question is...just how far back has she been a Democrat? Her entire life?
She’s toast if the GOP can find someone who can fog a mirror.
Even if she loses, and she will, she’ll get a job on ABCNNBCBSFOX..................
The GOP is the biggest group of losers..been losing since 1988...at the federal level.....lets face it DC is the greatest RICO racket going...
Who has the best shot at taking this trash out? Primary challenger..
She is finished!
How convenient. Multiple opponents to split the anti-Cheney vote.
Big hate indeed. She is the turd in that punchbowl. I don't know why McCarthy doesn't boot her. Well, I do. He's a turd RINO, too. They both need to be primaried.
That should get her sorry @$$ booted.
