Cheney: Trump poses 'never seen before' threat

United States House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (pictured) stated that claims made by Former US President Donald Trump that the 2020 US election was stolen pose a threat that "America has never seen before."

Cheney asserted that Trump "provoked a violent attack on this Capitol in an effort to steal the election," and remained steadfast in his "aggressive efforts to convince Americans that the election was stolen from him." She once called out that that was a lie, adding that "remaining silent and ignoring the lie emboldens the liar" and calling out her party for "abandoning the rule of law" and "undermining democracy."

Cheney's comments come on the eve of the second vote of confidence by the GOP on her position as Conference Chair, which she is expected to lose following the endorsements by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise, and Trump himself of Representative Elise Stefanik for the position. Stefanik supported Trump's claims that the 2020 US election was stolen.
