Liz Cheney calls Trump, who incites an rebellion in opposition to Congress, “essentially the most harmful factor a president has finished”
MP Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) Appeared in “The Ax Files with David Axelrod” and condemned former President Donald Trump for the worst violation of the oath of office when he instigated a riot against Congress on January 6th.
As I said, I think what Donald Trump did is the most dangerous thing, the most egregious violation of a presidential oath in our history, ”Cheney said in the episode recorded on Saturday. “And the idea that the Republican leader in the House of Representatives would be in Mar-a-Lago a few weeks after him, essentially, you know, begging him to somehow get back into his lap or whatever … it was what he did was inexcusable for me. “
Cheney further compared Trump’s rhetoric to that of the Chinese Communist Party.
“When you hear Donald Trump speak now, when you hear the language he uses now, it is essentially the same things that the Chinese Communist Party, for example, is saying about the United States and our democracy,” she said.
“When he says our system is not working … when he claims it is incapable of conveying the will of the people, you know that it somehow failed – those are the same things the Chinese government says about us . “, Cheney continued. “And it’s very dangerous and harmful … and it’s not true.”
Cheney was ousted from her leadership position in the House of Representatives after she resisted Trump’s untruths about the 2020 general election when Trump issued a statement more than three months after President Joe Biden took office, calling Biden’s victory “the big lie”.
Cheney replied shortly afterwards with its own declaration that the parliamentary elections in 2020 were “not stolen”.
“Anyone who says it was like that is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law and poisoning our democratic system,” she wrote.
House minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) Has refused that efforts to remove Cheney from her position as third-tier Republican in the House of Representatives have in some way to do with her vote to indict Trump for inciting an insurrection against Congress.
