On January 13, U.S. House of Representatives Democrats teamed up with NeverTrumper RINOs (Republicans in name only) to impeach President Donald J. Trump for a second time, claiming he “incited insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. Among all the Democrats voting on the frivolous political ploy was congressional Republican Conference chair, Rep. Liz Cheney (RINO-WY).
She said after the incursion of the U.S. Capitol, “What is important is to recognize we just had a violent mob assault the U.S. Capitol…. There is no question that the president formed the mob. The president incited the mob, the president addressed the mob. This is what America is not.”
Speaker of the U.S. House, Nancy Pelosi, gave her high marks for stabbing President Trump in the back, saying, “Good for her for honoring her oath of office,” adding her wishes “that more Republicans would honor their oaths of office.”
Now, Cheney faces her first 2022 primary opponent, state Sen. Anthony Bouchard. He announced his candidacy on Wednesday, saying in a statement, “Wyoming was President Trump’s best state both times he ran.”
“That’s because Wyoming voters are strong conservatives who want our leaders to stand up for America, defend our freedoms, fight for our way of life and always put working people first, as President Trump did.”
“Liz Cheney’s long-time opposition to President Trump and her most recent vote for impeachment shows just how out of touch she is with Wyoming,” the statement continues. “Wyoming taxpayers need a voice in Congress who will stand up to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats and not give them cover. That’s why I’m running for Congress.”
The Wyoming state Republican Party also condemned Cheney’s betrayal of President Trump in with vote censuring her. Also, an online recall petition has drawn more than 40,000 signatures.
