WY what were you thinking when you reelected this monster. She is in the pit along with all the other snakes!!! 2022 can not come soon enough. Primary the B!itch. This is where President Trump can come into play. He can endorse someone to primary her. Then she will be toast and the deep state is so despised that she will lose.

In the spirit of the now culture, don't call for her to step down; freakin' make her! She won't step down just because it's called for. She's one of them, and she doesn't care about rules; she's a law unto herself. It will be good news when she's dragged out of the position. This is no longer politics as usual, good guys. New rules are being made daily; you no longer have any good friends across the aisle or in the aisle. We don't have a constitution; the left has hijacked America. Wake up!

From Reply 1: This is where President Trump can come into play. He can endorse someone to primary her. If Liz Cheney runs for re-election in 2022, I think she will face a tough fight in the primary, and if she advances to the general, a strong challenge from a democrat, for if the democrats smell blood, they will pour millions into the race. The best interests of the Wyoming GOP and the state would be served if she retires from Congress.

The Bush team are all globalist and W is the worst of the lot. I supported the man through thick and thin but as they say the scales have been lifted from my eyes and I can see clearly now how wrong I was and how vicious and destructive to the nation and its people that these people have been. Shame on him for holding that Bible and pretending to be someone who believes in right and wrong. People who travel with the likes of the Clintons and rip off the people of Haiti deserve no respect. Shame on you all for being the next best thing to Benedict Arnold. The Cheney's are just useful idiots in the War on capitalism. The Chicoms have played them.

I can't believe he is that bad of a judge of character. From governors to the supreme court picks. What to do, what to do I lament. God bless President Trump!

The GOP needs to begin looking for someone to Primary her in 22. As I said days ago, we Republicans need to fund any candidate who is going after a RINO. It doesn't matter if they are going OUR member of Congress, we need to act as a Group and work with anyone in this Country running against someone who needs to be kicked out of their Cushy Seat in D.C.! So, Wyoming Republicans, get to work. Find a Great Candidate to run against Liz and we will back you 100%!

It sounds like Cheney still has a fortune in Halliburton and is in office to protect it. Why else would she not want wars to end? Yesterday, somebody suggested that we stop calling these people RINOs because it makes their symbol a tough, strong animal. Something like a chicken or a chipmunk would be a better fit. The democrats already have most of the disgusting reptiles sewn up.

I have just read an announcement by Congressman Liz Cheney, she has declared publicly, that she will vote to impeach President Donald J. Trump, again. I sent a letter to Congressman Cheney and Senator Barrasso several weeks ago, requesting a reply. Have not heard from Congressman Cheney, which I have found is not unusual, unless a solicitation for It has been my belief that so-called "Public Servants" should represent their constituents as they purport to do when running for office. I often find that is not the case, and wonder why. Perhaps the answer can be obtained if you follow the money. According to published financial records Congressman Liz Cheney raised nearly $3,000,000,000.00 in the last election cycle. Only 6.12% came from individual small donors, who I assume were Wyoming citizens. Her largest donors include Morgan Stanley, Castle Harlan Inc and Lawyers/Law Firms. I wonder where her loyalties lie? Has our congressional delegation been bought and paid for by Corporate interests ? If so, the problem could be easily solved if you could only donate to those you can vote for.

Looking at her background it is clear the Cheneys groomed her to become the first female president!? It appears she is also quite arrogant and looks down on the President because she feels she is so much smarter than anyone else. Gee, where have we seen this entitlement attitude before? Oh, was that the Klinton @itch? Let's hope this is the last office she holds before she switches to the Dems officially!

She is a major disappointment! There is no basis for impeaching Trump under the Constitutional standard. He said in his speech that the protest should be peaceful. And he (and others, like me) had the right to question the results of the election. She is voting for impeachment because she doesn't like his America First policies. The Bushes and the Cheneys are globalists. Too bad they don't remember that the Democrats wanted to impeach them, too.

President Trump was impeached a second time by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday in a largely party-line vote that saw a handful of Republicans join Democrats to blame the outgoing commander-in-chief for sparking last week’s Capitol siege. The measure reached 217 “yea” votes shortly after 4:20 p.m. to make Trump the only president to be impeached twice. The final vote was 232-197, with 10 Republicans crossing party lines and four Republicans not voting when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) announced around 4:35 p.m. No members of the GOP voted in 2019 to impeach Trump the first time.

President Trump potentially faces a torrent of criminal charges when he leaves office, including charges linked to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, making prosecutors worry that he is a flight risk. Mr. Trump’s real estate empire extends to multiple luxury properties in countries that don’t have extradition treaties with the United States. And Mr. Trump himself publicly mused in October that he’d leave the country if he lost to Democrat Joseph R. Biden. Douglas McNabb, a private attorney with expertise in international extradition defense, said that if criminal charges are brought, Mr. Trump fits the bill for becoming a fugitive from justice.
