Liz Cheney speaks out against her own Party
The Republican Rep. states Americans must choose between Trump or the Constitution...
Liz Cheney, a Republican Representative, is one of the very few Republicans recently coming out against former President Donald Trump.
"We are confronting a domestic threat that we have never faced before — and that is a former President who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our constitutional Republic. And he is aided by Republican leaders and elected officials who have made themselves willing hostages to this dangerous and irrational man."
Liz Cheney said.
The critique of Trump may be the sinking shot to his possible run for the 2024 Presidential seat which is reported to launch close to the time of the midterms. Liz Cheney also indicated how much of an easier path it would be to just look away, but she also stated everyone has a role to play in confronting the threat against Democracy Trump has imposed.

"No party and no people and no nation can defend and perpetuate a constitutional republic if they accept a leader who's gone to war with the rule of law, with the democratic process, or with a peaceful transition of power, with the Constitution itself.
It has become clear that the efforts Donald Trump oversaw and engaged in were even more chilling and more threatening than we could have imagined.”
Liz Cheney added.
She eventually gave the ultimatum to the Republican party, her own party, by saying, "Republicans cannot both be loyal to Donald Trump and loyal to the Constitution.” The comment was surprisingly met with a round of applause. She then shifted to what has inspired her to speak her opinion - the young women coming forward and those who are willingly testifying in front of the House Select Committee.
"Especially the young women — young women who seem instinctively to understand the peril of this moment for our democracy. And young women who know that it will be up to them to save it. And I have been incredibly moved by the young women that I have met and that have come forward to testify in the January 6 committee.
Her [Cassidy Hutchinson] superiors — men many years older — a number of them are hiding behind executive privilege, anonymity and intimidation. But her bravery and her patriotism yesterday were awesome to behold. Little girls all across this great nation are seeing what it really means to love this country and what it really means to be a patriot.
I want to speak to every young girl watching tonight. The power is yours, and so is the responsibility. These days, for the most part, men are running the world — and it is really not going that well."
