Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has criticized House Speaker Mike Johnson for going along with former President Donald Trump’s claims of election fraud in 2020.

Cheney accused Johnson of setting aside the rulings of the courts and the requirements of the Constitution to gain praise from Trump.

She called Johnson “dangerous” because elected Republicans who know better but still support efforts to undermine the republic pose a threat.

“Mike is somebody that I knew well. We were elected together. Our offices were next to each other. Mike is somebody who says that he’s committed to defending the Constitution. But that’s not what he did when we were all tested in the aftermath of the 2020 election,” Cheney stated.

She added, “Mike in my experience, and, I was very, deeply involved and engaged as the conference chair, when Mike was doing things like convincing members of the conference to sign on to the amicus brief. He was acting in ways that he knew to be wrong.”

‘And, I think that the country unfortunately will come to see the measure of his character.”

“In my view, he was willing to set aside what he knew to be the rulings of the courts, the requirements of the Constitution, in order to placate Donald Trump, in order to gain praise from Donald Trump, for political expedience. So it’s a concerning moment to have him be elected speaker of the House.”

Cheney also expressed concern about Johnson being elected speaker of the House.

Cheney concluded, “One of the reasons why somebody like Mike Johnson is dangerous is because when you have elected Republicans who know better, elected Republicans who know the truth but yet will go along with the efforts to undermine our republic, the efforts, frankly, that Donald Trump undertook to overturn the election.”
