Cheney: I’ll ‘Debate’ My Impeachment Vote ‘Every Day of the Week’

Path 27

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) says she is willing to debate her decision to vote to impeach former President Donald Trump on the charge of “incitement of insurrection” during her primary race.

During an interview with Punchbowl News’ Jake Sherman, Cheney expressed confidence that she will defeat a primary challenger. However, she admitted that it could be a tough fight.

“I’m confident I’m gonna win. It’s gonna be, certainly, a challenging primary. I’m preparing for that right now. We’ve got multiple opponents,” she said.

She continued:

“I also think there are some pretty big constitutional issues at stake, and I think those are really important. So anybody who wants to get in that race and who wants to do it on the basis of debating me about whether or not President Trump should have been impeached, I’ll have that debate every day of the week.”

Sherman said, “And you might be having that every day of the week.”

“I might be. But I think it really, really matters that we not go down the path of every election cycle, you know, something like what happened can happen again,” Cheney responded.

Cheney is one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for what lawmakers say is his role in inciting the January 6 insurrection. Since her vote, she has said that Trump should not be seen as a leader of the party.

The Wyoming Republican has drawn sharp criticism from Trump who said he would endorse a primary challenger.

During a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump blasted Cheney as he said, “The good news is in her state, she’s been censured, and in her state, her poll numbers have dropped faster than any human being I’ve ever seen. So hopefully, they’ll get rid of her with the next election.”

Cheney has said she would not support Trump if he won the party’s presidential nomination in 2024.
