(RepublicanReport.org) – Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has made life very difficult for herself this year. She was one of then-President Donald Trump’s loudest critics after the Capitol riot on January 6. Despite facing censure from the Wyoming GOP, she has not backed down from her position; she slammed the former commander-in-chief again last week in a Washington Post op-ed.
On Saturday, May 8, The Washington Post reported that Trump spokesman Jason Miller said ousting Liz Cheney from her seat in 2022 is one of the former president’s top priorities. Trump has previously stated he wants to back a single candidate in that race in order to avoid splitting the vote among Cheney’s opponents.
It also appears likely the House GOP will vote to remove Cheney from her position as chair of the House Republican Conference. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) looks to be the most popular candidate to replace her at this point.

Despite the barrage of negativity about Donald Trump on mainstream media since the last election (and over the four prior years), he’s still one of the most important figures in American conservative politics. It looks like Liz Cheney is about to learn that the hard way.
