The Wyoming Republican claimed that the 2020 presidential election was not rigged.
Rep. Liz Cheney intensified her conflict with former President Donald Trump and his congressional allies on Monday by taking a crude dig at the former president’s most recent assertion that the 2020 election was rigged against him.
Trump’s Save America PAC released a statement on Monday morning saying that the election “shall be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” ― an effort to hijack the name given to Trump and his Republican allies’ fabrication that the former president won last November’s election.
Less than an hour later, Cheney (R-Wyo.), who is under increased pressure from Trump-supporting Republicans in the House to step down due to her blunt criticisms of the former president’s lies, responded on Twitter.
The 2020 presidential election wasn’t rigged, according to Cheney. Anyone who asserts that it was doing so is promoting THE BIG LIE, ignoring the law, and undermining our democratic system.
Cheney was the highest-ranking Republican to vote with Democrats to impeach Trump in January of last year because of the alleged part he played in inciting the Capitol rioting on January 6th. Since then, she has been a primary target for Trump and his friends in politics, and she has already thwarted one attempt to have her removed as the House GOP conference chair.
When she stated last week that support for Trump-backed challenges to the 2020 Electoral College results should disqualify any Republican seeking the party’s presidential candidacy in 2024, the Wyoming Republican sparked a fresh round of Republican agitation. In light of the ongoing internal conflict between Cheney and the party’s pro-Trump wing, some prominent Republicans, including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, are allegedly losing interest in Cheney.
The Republican-commissioned audit of the election results in Maricopa County, which encompasses the Phoenix metro region, is currently underway when Trump sends out his letter. The former president has seized on the initiative as his most recent chance to demonstrate that there was widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, which he lost to President Joe Biden, and has released a barrage of statements to raise awareness of the situation.
Sen. John McCain’s widow, Cindy McCain, mocked the audit on Sunday, calling it a “ludicrous” attempt to undercut Biden’s triumph. McCain was a vocal opponent of Trump in the GOP and rose to prominence as a spokesman for the party during Biden’s campaign.
