(PresidentialInsider.com)- According to a report from The New Yorker, so-called “Republican” Rep. Liz Cheney – currently the House GOP Conference Chair – worked behind the scenes to deliver an opinion piece slamming President Donald Trump alongside 10 former Defense Secretaries.
It’s the latest in a long string of revelations about how Cheney worked to undermine former President Donald Trump, and to continually tarnish his name as he reportedly considers another run for president in 2024.
“Cheney herself secretly orchestrated an unprecedented op-ed in the Washington Post by all ten living former Defense Secretaries, including her father, warning against Trump’s efforts to politicize the military,” The New Yorker reported on May 6.
The piece also claimed that when “forced to choose” between President Donald Trump’s so-called “Big Lie” – an incorrect assertion that it is a lie to suggest that the 2020 presidential election was affected by corruption, fraud, and misconduct – and Liz Cheney, the House GOP has chosen the former.
The piece defends Cheney, who has repeatedly sided with the Democrats presumably because it’s the easiest way to attack President Donald Trump, who advocated a defense of working-class Americans that Cheney has called “Marxist.”
The op-ed referenced by the New Yorker was published in January of this year, and it reveals the role that Cheney had to play in its publishing.
It could well be the last straw for the Republican Party and its Congressional representatives who tentatively supported her in the last vote to remove her from her post as GOP House Conference Chair.
With House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy sick of her antics, this could be the final thing that pushes Republicans to oust her for good.
