As the establishment tries to make Rep. Liz Cheney the face of the post-Trump Republican party, the congresswoman from Wyoming was given a Sunday morning TV forum to rage against the former POTUS.
Before Cheney’s emergence as the most prominent member of the GOP House caucus to join Nancy Pelosi’s lynch mob in the impeachment of private citizen Donald J. Trump, she was more well known for being the daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney.
Her appearance on “Fox News Sunday” must have made her old man proud as Cheney doubled down on impeachment and vowed that Trump will have no role as the party’s leader going forward.
Cheney also boasted about what she called a “massive criminal investigation underway” to persecute the nation’s 45th president over inciting the chaos in D.C. that resulted in the brief occupation of the U.S. Capitol and serves as the basis for the sham impeachment.
Her remarks were warmly received by Biden fanboy Chris Wallace.

“…I would also point out, though, Chris, that the Senate trial is a snapshot. There’s a massive criminal investigation underway. There will be a massive criminal investigation of everything that happened on January 6th and in the days before. People will want to know exactly what the president was doing.
They want to know, for example, whether the tweet he sent out calling Vice President Pence a coward while the attack was underway, whether that tweet, for example, was a premeditated effort to provoke violence. There are a lot of questions that have to be answered and there will be many, many criminal investigations looking at every aspect of this and everyone who was involved, as there should be.
But I stand firmly by my statement. We have never seen that kind of an assault by a president of the United States on another branch of government and that can never happen again.”
Cheney represents the good-old-boy wing of the GOP establishment that was rocked when Trump pulled off the unthinkable in 2016 by taking down his primary opponents including John Ellis Bush aka Jeb! and they will stoop to any level to prevent him from ever coming back.
The idea that Trump managed to complete an entire four-year term without starting any new foreign wars has many people very, very pissed off. Sadly, America’s real adversaries will be ignored until they can be sure that the hated outsider is out of the picture.
Like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney has been embraced by Democrats who now worship the almighty power of the one-party state despite their legitimate previous criticism of him for being a bloodthirsty warmonger as well as a torture aficionado.
He also helped to put into place the awesome surveillance apparatus that the Obama regime used to spy on Trump’s campaign and transition team.
The swamp and its media are awfully impressed with Liz Cheney. Unfortunately, that sentiment isn’t held in her home state of Wyoming where she was just censured by the state GOP and is facing a primary challenge next year.
