Cheney Accuses Trump of ‘Poisoning Our Democratic System’ With Election Claims

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) claims former President Donald Trump is “poisoning our democratic system” by spreading his claims about the 2020 election.

In a statement on Monday Trump said, “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!”

Cheney fired back on Twitter, “The 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.”

She was one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump following the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6.

During an interview with Punchbowl News’ Jake Sherman, Cheney stood by her decision to vote to impeach the former president, as IJR reported.

When talking about facing a primary challenger, Cheney said, “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 replied, “And you might be having that every day of the week.”

Cheney explained, “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.”

During an appearance on Fox News last month Cheney was also asked, “If Donald Trump were the 2024 nominee, would you support him?”

She responded, “I would not.”

When asked by the New York Post if she is ruling out a run for president herself, Cheney responded, “I’m not ruling anything in or out — never is a long time.”

  1. Poisoning our Democratic system??? Why, there’s your problem Liz. You think the US is a democracy. It’s a democratic republic, a constitutional republic. YOU might not have but most of us did pledge allegiance to the flag …..to the ‘republic for which it stands’…..
    Let’s break that down. Say there are 5 guys who want to get some fast food. 3 want pizza and 2 want burgers. In a democracy, majority always rules. 5 people having pizza. Doesn’t matter if you hate pineapple unless 2 others do, too.
    Now in a republic, the needs/wants of the minority must be considered, too. 3 pizza/2 burger groups hammer out a toppings deal that’s acceptable or just go get burgers AND pizza.
    Too bad lefties are so power crazy that they can’t accept any compromise. It weakens us as a nation.
    And Liz? Just a hint: watch Arizona be the first to fall in the most scandalous election scam in the country’s history. The first, but not the last.
    Look up Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, IT genius hired to audit Dominion voting machines in AZ. He was offered $10 mill to refuse the job. He found Dominion machines that were hooked up directly to the internet (no conflict of interest, right?), others transmitting voting data to China and Russia and still others tampered with to add remove votes. Large dumps of Biden-only ballots, shredded ballots. MASSIVE FRAUD. Good interview on Gateway Pundit last week.
    Jovan fibushed in AZ; hence the audit/recount currently in action. And Jovan is now doing the same job in Georgia. I feel like this one oddly brilliant tech mind could bring down the country. The SCOTUS did a grave disservice to America by throwing all those election suits out. If nothing else, Arizona will rock the nation and the left’s chokehold on America. And the DESPERATION of the left to crush the truth!!! They will stop at nothing, so neither must we. Without a free and fair election process, there is only tyranny. CWII

  2. Democracy has become DEMO-CRAZY or demonstration of craziness by a conman who loves praising killer dictator and did not believe in own national patriotic intelligence agencies and celebrated insurrection against own capitol. Makes me SICK to think of this.

  3. Liz you, two things, 1st, it’s not a lie, just wait for the results and 2nd, this is a REPUBLIC, not a democracy and 3rd you are a commie liar 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤯🤯

    1. You poor fool. I have known trump for 36 years. He is the biggest liar you will ever know. And the biggest conman around. He always tries to rally those with weak minds around him and bullshits them so they only believe whatever he says. He is a savant when it come to the weak minded. He has been that way for 36 years. He hasn’t changed.

  4. Do keep talking, Lizzie–every time you open your mouth, dozens, if not more, conservatives put you in the cross-hairs & determine to double their support for ANY candidate who primaries you. Shut-up and go home–that is if you know where home is! You sure it isn’t DC instead of Wyoming?

    1. You poor deluded, brainwashed person. I have known trump for 36 years. You must have a weak mind because that his what he has always depended on with his followers. He has created a cult that is Pro-Trump and Anti-American.

  5. From cheney.house.gov, “Apr 28, 2021 · Liz Cheney serves as Wyoming’s lone member of Congress in the U.S. House of Representatives. She was first elected in 2016, on a platform of pursuing conservative solutions to help create jobs, cut taxes and regulation, expand America’s energy, mining and ag industries and restoring America’s strength and power in the world.” THINK ABOUT THAT!! She has failed in every single one of the goals of her platform in her friendship with Mad King Biden the Usurper and Divider. EVERY SINGLE ONE!! The Mad King has done the reverse of all those goals. Wyoming economy will be turned upside down.

    From Yahoo/1News, “President Joe Biden greeted Rep. Liz Cheney with a fist bump before addressing a joint session of congress in the House chamber of the Capitol on April 28.”

    Does anyone really believe that Liz Cheney is a Republican or Conservative. The people of Wyoming have been lied to, bamboozled, hood winked.

    She is a Democrat in Conservative clothing. Of course she supports the Mad King in the White House. Of course she attacks President Trump.

    1. I have known trump for 36 years. She has him pegged! It is too bad you cannot see past what trump TOLD you to believe, and actually look at the truth. Trump counts on people with weak minds that will believe anything he tells them. He has always been like that. The problem is that he is probably the biggest liar and conman we have seen. you, sir, have turned into one of his puppets. That is a shame

  7. This NWO ho is definitely her father’s daughter. Dick Cheney, Halliburton owner, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush connections, along with Barack Obama… ALL NWO globalist elites who wish to convert the entire world under a single form of government… Communism. That will be controlled by ONE individual, a dictator who will be indwelled by Satan, himself. The Word of God tells us this. Choose wisely, people. Don’t choose these people who are deliberately setting up and ushering in the time of the Great Tribulation Age!

    1. In case you haven’t noticed, no countries today are “communist.” China may say it is, but has a mixed economy with a private sector. “Since the introduction of Deng Xiaoping’s economic reforms, China has what economists call a socialist market economy – one in which a dominant state-owned enterprises sector exists in parallel with market capitalism and private ownership.”

      Republicans have been screaming about America’s demise into socialism or communism from 1870, shortly after the publication of Das Kapital by Marx in 1867. They have been frightening Americans with their screams about socialism since then except during the presidencies of Teddy Roosevelt and Eisenhower. You just add a religious twist to your insanity.

  8. She don’t fool no one with her bull crap. Just like her husband she is a sorry P O S that only thinks of herself. She lied her butt off to get elected. She is planning on retiring. She is a fool but not an idiot and thank is what a good challenger will make her out to be buy just telling the truth. I don’t think she can handle the pain of her ego being crushed.

    1. I would say welcome to the club Ed, but sorry to see you here, & feel the same disgusts as you. I’ve waited out my wait with them. I’ve come to the conclusion that the republican/conservative party has fell into one of two different groups of people traitors or cowards. How did we get to this place to have voted these type of people for leaders in office? We are surrounded by Lunacy. Now would be a good time for the smart people to step up
