Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) broke open Donald Trump’s Big Lie and the stench of its destruction to American democracy pervades the GOP. She is a powerful enemy against him and his party. Although we rarely agree with her, today we do and admire her courage to tell the truth in spite of 45 and the consequences. As she spoke in her first exclusive interview, we realized she has broken free and is at liberty to speak openly.
In an NBC Today Show exclusive, Savannah Guthrie was the first to speak with her after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) expelled her from her leadership role.
Wednesday morning, House Republicans voted Cheney out of her leadership role. Her crime? She told the truth about Donald Trump’s Big Lie. He did not win the election.
Cheney also voted to impeach him after he January 6 barely failed coup. Only nine other Republicans joined her in that vote.
Guthrie just tweeted the video of that interview:
‘Just sat down with Rep. Liz Cheney @replizcheney for an exclusive interview on’

The ex-president has been after her since she voted to impeach him. And Trump never lets up. Once he feels wronged, he puts an individual on his enemy list.
She survived a caucus vote to hold on to her position after that vote to impeach Trump, but her subsequent criticisms of the former president angered Trump and his allies and led to her ouster on Wednesday.
Moderate Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) is a moderate, but in her attempt to climb the GOP ladder, she has been sucking up to the former POTUS. She is the most likely to replace Cheney even though she voted with Trump less than 75 percent of the time. Cheney voted with him over 90 percent of the time.
Twitter world went wild over this interview. Take a look at some of our favorites below:
