GOP Rep. Liz Cheney spoke to reporters after the vote to oust her from leadership.
She said, “I am absolutely committed, as I said last night, as I said just now to my colleagues, that we must go forward based on truth.”
Cheney continued: “We cannot both embrace the big lie and embrace the constitution. And going forward, the nation needs it. The nation needs a strong Republican party. The nation needs a party that is based upon fundamental principles of conservatism.”
Cheney said she is committed and dedicated to ensuring that that’s how the Republican party goes forward.
Ask how concerned she is that Donald Trump might end up back in the Oval Office, Cheney said, “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former President never again gets anywhere near the oval office.”
“We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language. We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the constitution. And I think it’s very important that we make sure whomever we elect is somebody who will be faithful to the constitution.”
