Liz Cheney Blasts The Republican Party For Presenting An ‘Existential Crisis’ In 2024

via MSNBC

Former Rep. Liz Cheney expressed concern that if Republicans win a majority in Congress in the 2024 election, the United States will be under threat.

She emphasized the importance of fidelity to the Constitution and criticized the cult of personality around Donald Trump.

Cheney stated that endorsing Trump is inconsistent with defending the Constitution and warned of an existential crisis if the Republicans are in the majority in January 2025. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

“You once used to say that nobody could challenge your conservative credentials. What if being a conservative today is defined by one thing: your support for Donald Trump?” CBS’s John Dickerson pressed.

“Well, I know what conservative means, and I think that the most conservative of all conservative values is fidelity to the Constitution.”

“So there certainly are people today who are caught in this cult of personality, but that’s the opposite of conservative.”

Dickerson continued, “Let me ask you about that oath. If a person is a member of Congress and they have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution, can they defend the Constitution and also endorse Donald Trump?”

Cheney responded, “No, that is inconsistent.”

Dickerson said, “So they are break being their oath by saying they would like him to be the next president?”

Cheney answered, “In my view, fundamentally, there is a choice. You can’t be for Donald Trump and for the Constitution. You have to choose.”

Dickerson said, “What happens if Mike Johnson is the speaker on the 6th of January 2025?”

Cheney said, “He can’t be. We are facing a situation with respect to the 2024 election where it’s an existential crisis, and we have to ensure that we don’t have a situation where an election that might be thrown into the House of Representatives is overseen by a Republican majority.”

Dickerson said, “So you would prefer a Democratic majority?”

Cheney answered, “I believe very strongly in those principles and ideals that have defined the Republican Party, but the Republican Party of today has made a choice, and they haven’t chosen the Constitution.”

“And so I do think it presents a threat if the Republicans are in the majority in January 2025.”
