Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) went on a hate-filled tirade against former President Trump in a speech given Monday at the American Enterprise Institute where she once again warned that he and his followers are a threat to democracy.
In a Q&A session following the barn burner speech, she recalled one unnamed Republican House member allegedly carping over loyalty to Trump.
“I was in the Republican cloakroom,” Cheney stated, turning to the events of Jan. 6, 2021.
“I was working on my remarks, I was supposed to speak that day and there were sheets of paper laid out on the desks. And I asked one of the staffers in the cloakroom, what are these sheets of paper?” she noted.

Cheney continued to weave her narrative over the anonymous Republican turning on Trump while seemingly fighting for him at the same time.
“Because members were coming in and signing them. And this person said to me, ‘Well, those are the objection sheets, because, you know, it’s only actually required that one House member object. But there were so many who wanted to show they were objecting that they’d set up these sign-up sheets in the cloakroom,'” Cheney continued.
“And as I was sitting there, a member came in and he signed his name on each one of the state’s sheets. And then he said under his breath, ‘The things we do for the Orange Jesus.’ And I thought, you know, you’re taking an act that is unconstitutional,” the soon-to-be former Wyoming representative claimed, providing absolutely no proof that the incident ever actually occurred.

Cheney is shilling for her proposal that would overhaul the Electoral Count Act, taking aim at the vice president’s role in the process and holding governors accountable for submitting lawful election results to Congress, according to Politico.
“Those who are protecting Donald Trump — elected leaders of my party — are now willing to condemn FBI agents, Department of Justice officials, and pretend that taking top-secret SCI documents and keeping them in a desk drawer in an office in Mar-a-Lago, or in an unsecured location anywhere, was somehow not a problem. They are attempting to excuse this behavior,” she ranted.
“Bit by bit, excuse by excuse, we’re putting Donald Trump above the law. We are rendering indefensible conduct normal, legal, and appropriate as though he were a king,” Cheney declared during her speech.

“And now Donald Trump has been suggesting, not even subtly, that any legal action against him could result in violence. Our former president is apparently now suggesting that if he is prosecuted, his supporters should stand up to our constitutional order and the rule of law, stand up and through whatever means are needed, prevent his prosecution, prevent the application of the law,” she disingenuously asserted.
“It is hard to see this as anything but a direct threat to our Constitution, to our republic, and a credible one at that. One can only wonder, is this where the Republican Party will go next?” Cheney railed.
That is a question that Cheney has pounded on now for a long time in her quest to unsuccessfully bring Trump down by any means necessary.
AEI should be ashamed of itself for hosting a speech by the disgraceful and dishonorable DC swamp creature, Liz Cheney. Liz Cheney is not a profile in courage; she’s a profile in deep state corruption. AEI should know better.

“The prosecution is inappropriate because MAGA will violently oppose it. All of us have an obligation to acknowledge what is happening. Those activities that I have just listed for you, those are the erosion of the rule of law and they are the undermining of our constitutional system,” she added.
“Our constitutional system has been defended and handed down to us by every generation since 1789. It comes to us with a duty of inheritance. It doesn’t belong to us. It belongs to our children and our grandchildren. And we must not be the generation that allows it to unravel,” Cheney concluded in her remarks ironically celebrating Constitution Day.
