The criticisms of the Republican legislator Liz Cheney against former President Donald Trump and his constant accusations of having been the victim of an alleged electoral fraud in November 2020 found a response within the party itself.
This Tuesday, the leader of the Republican minority in the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, said in an interview with Fox News that the complaint against her arises because of her lack of “ability to get the message across.”
In accordance with Axios, the main members of the Republican Party in the Lower House have raised the possibility of removing Cheney as president of the Republican Conference to be held in a month.
The source named Rep. Jim Banks, who said Cheney’s words are listed as “an unwanted distraction.”
For his part, McCarthy assured that there is no concern in the Party about how he voted in the impeachment against Trump.
Criticism against Trump
This Monday, Cheney strongly criticized former President Donald Trump and those who defend the theory of electoral fraud in the presidential elections of November 2020.
The Hill quoted the congresswoman for the state of Wyoming, who indicated that all those who disseminated that information were in charge of “poisoning our democratic system.”
“The 2020 presidential elections were not stolen,” said Republican Cheney on her Twitter account. “Anyone who says this is the case is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning his back on the rule of law and poisoning our democratic system.”
Cheney’s remarks came after former President Trump spoke again about the November 2020 elections, when he lost to Democrat Joe Biden: “The 2020 fraudulent presidential elections will be, from this day, known as THE GREAT! LIE! ”, Said the ex-president in a statement that was also revealed this Monday.
