Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said late Wednesday that former President Trump poses a “domestic threat” that the nation has “never faced before.”
“At this moment, we are confronting a domestic threat that we have never faced before. And that is a former president who is attempting to unravel the foundations of our Constitutional Republic,” Cheney said during an address at the Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute.
“And he is aided by Republican leaders and elected officials who have made themselves willing hostages to this dangerous and irrational man.”
Cheney said that some in the GOP are “embracing” Trump and “enabling his lies.”
“Many others are urging that we not confront Donald Trump, that we look away. And that is certainly the easier path,” she added.
