Liz Cheney calls Trump’s campaign actions scarier than imagined
Republican U.S. Representative Liz Cheney said Wednesday that Donald Trump’s efforts to cancel the 2020 election were “scarier and more threatening” than first imagined, while calling on Republicans to choose between loyalty to Trump and the Constitution. Cheney, a commanding presence on the congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot in the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters, warned vitriolic partisan attacks that could tear the political fabric of the country apart and urged his audience to rise above politics. “My fellow Americans, we are on the brink and we must step back,” the 55-year-old daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney said in a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. .
