Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) stated on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that safeguarding American democracy and ensuring that Americans are informed about the truth about former President Trump come first.

The Aug. 16 Republican primary in Wyoming will be a challenging fight for Cheney, the vice chair of the Jan. 6 committee, as she is currently polling much worse than her Trump-endorsed rival for the state’s at-large House seat.

Here in Wyoming, she is working hard to earn every vote, but she won’t make any false statements about it. Nothing untrue concerning the election will be mentioned by her. The only reason her opponents are acting in this way, according to Liz Cheney, is to win the election.

If it means maintaining my job in the House of Representatives or defending the constitutional republic and ensuring that the American people are aware of the truth about Donald Trump, she will pick the Constitution and the truth every single day, she added.

She’s fighting hard to make sure Donald Trump is never again within reach of the Oval Office, and no matter what happens on August 16 she’s going to wake up on August 17 and continue to fight hard.

Liz Cheney stated that there would be no ambiguity in her work on the Jan. 6 committee if she lost her primary when questioned by host Jake Tapper if it had been beneficial. I think the work she conducts on this committee is the single most important thing she has ever done professionally.

Liz Cheney Has Always Been An Intense Trump Opponent

Liz Cheney has long been a passionate critic of Trump, and her criticism of the former president has made her a pariah both in Wyoming, where her family has long been seen as political nobility and in the House GOP, where she previously was the highest-ranking female Republican.

Cheney’s team started asking Wyoming Democrats to join the Republican Party last month in order to support her in the state’s Republican primary.

Cheney reaffirmed her position on CNN, stating she will decide about 2024 “down the road” despite having previously recognized the potential of a 2024 presidential bid.
