Republican Representative Liz Cheney has all but been handed the sack from her position as House Republican Conference Chair, as well as potentially losing her candidacy in 2022 after a close friend of hers spilled the beans regarding her anti-Trump attacks in the close of his presidency.
We all know that Cheney and Trump do not get along whatsoever, however, in a recently published article, the New Yorker’s Susan Glasser may just have given the Republicans the ammo they need to remove Cheney from the political scene for good.
Glasser held an interview with Eric Edelman, the former national security adviser to former Vice-President Dick Cheney, and a friend of Liz.
She claims that Edelman revealed that the Wyoming Rep had secretly orchestrated an op-ed that was published in the Washington Post, which featured statements from all ten former Defence Secretaries who are still alive.
One of the signatories of the op-ed was Liz’s father, Dick.
She states that Edelman told her that Cheney organized the op-ed as she was ‘worried what Trump might do,’ claiming that he wanted to politicize the military.
It’s worth noting that all of the signatories, including Trump’s first Defence Secretary James Mattis, quite literally hated President Trump, so it can be easily stated that these men would’ve signed anything as long as it shone a dark light on the former President.
But where did this crazy theory come from?
It’s believed that the op-ed, which was published on the 3rd of January, 3 days before the Capitol Hill riots, was based on conspiracy theories that were being pushed by the Democrats both before and after the 2020 election.
The theories were based around ideas that were formed in the aftermath of the deadly and destructive Black Lives Matter riots in the summer before the election.
Many Republicans started to call on President Trump to enact the Insurrection Act in order to deal with the out-of-control violence.
In a Fox News interview in September, Trump stated that he would use the act to stop the highly anticipated nights of violence that would take place up and down the country if he won re-election.
However, that didn’t happen, and he was defeated by Joe Biden.
This led the Democrats to concoct series of lies and theories that led Liz Cheney and the Defence Secretary to create the op-ed.
Mainstream Democrat politicians claimed that the President was going to use the Insurrection Act to remain in office after he took the election defeat poorly.
This was due to the fact that fake accounts posing as Trump and members of his team on the social media site Parler, claimed that he would be evoking the act to keep his power.
Politico published an article stating that the President was going to use the act, which gained mainstream Democrat attention.
Obviously, this never happened, yet it formed the basis for the op-ed written by Cheney’s father and the other Defence Secretaries.
Cheney, an open hater of Trump, peddled Democrat lies in order to undermine the then President and provide a disservice to the constituents she is supposed to represent.
Trump is expected to campaign against Cheney in 2022 to force her de-selection, and it is going to be glorious.
