Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) is every bit as tough as her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney (R). Nearly all of the other Republicans cower, quaking in their shoes terrified of the winged Donald Trump who set an enraged mob to kill his Vice President Mike Pence and others. Cheney stepped around the House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and then stepped up to lead her party out of its insanity.
The Wyoming representative opposed Trump as he whipped up his followers and set them into the Capitol Building for a violent coup. He sent them to kill the legislators and enjoyed the televised action. Unlike McCarthy and Scalise, she voted to certify President-elect Joe Biden, according to CNN.
As the third-ranking House leader, Cheney announced Tuesday afternoon that she would vote to impeach the president. She said she supported charging and removing Trump for inciting a riot on January 6, NBC News reported. He has proven to be a voracious preditor on his adopted party.
Staunchly conservative, Representative Cheney released a statement, CNN reported. She declared that Trump was responsible for the violence and death at the Capitol Building that day. She said that he “summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack:”
‘The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President. The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not.’
Cheney continued, saying Trump’s action was the greatest betrayal of all:
‘There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.’
The Democrats hold the House, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and will vote on one article of impeachment Wednesday. She appeared on CBS’ 60 Minutes Sunday to give America a window into the chaos and rage of the mob.
The representatives will charge Trump with incitement of insurrection. Unlike her male Republican counterpoints, Cheney claimed that this vote should be “driven by one’s conscience.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) laid back hinting that he could not bring back the Senate to vote for impeachment. All of a sudden, the Grim Reaper of the Senate decided that he thinks impeachment just might be a lovely way to exercise the cancer Trump is from his party.
McConnell told some of his associates he believes Trump committed impeachable offenses. No kidding. The soon-to-be Senate minority leader did not, however, commit “to vote to convict Trump during a Senate impeachment trial.”
Cheney’s father has not been a Trump fan, especially on foreign policy issues. Unlike this president, the former VP also supported the esteemed, world-renowned virologist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, during this coronavirus pandemic.
Trump also sent the enraged mob after members of the media.
