RINO GOP Rep. Liz Cheney vowed to support opponents of Republican ‘election deniers.’
The establishment politician pledged that support even if it means getting Democrats elected against members of her own party.
“We’ve got election deniers that have been nominated for really important positions all across the country,” Cheney said on Sunday morning.
“I’m going to be very focused on working to ensure that we do everything we can, not to elect election deniers,” she added.
“I’m going to work against those people, I’m going to work to support their opponents. I think it matters that much.”
After her primary defeat, GOP Rep. Liz Cheney tells @jonkarl that she will focus on working to keep election deniers out of office.

How long until Liz Cheney officially switches to the Democrat Party?
Cheney has hinted at the possibility of running for president in 2024.
Maybe that run comes as a Democrat.
The Blaze reported:
Among those Republicans who Cheney would not support is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis – who is a top GOP presidential candidate for 2024 along with former President Donald Trump.
“I think that DeSantis is somebody who is, right now, campaigning for election deniers,” she said, according to USA Today. “And I think that, you know, that is something that I think people have got to have real pause about. You know, either you fundamentally believe in and will support our constitutional structure, or you don’t.”
Despite Cheney suffering a humiliating loss to Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman in last week’s Wyoming Republican primary, “This Week” host Jonathan Karl asked Cheney about her presidential aspirations and if she would even run as a Republican.
“I haven’t made any specific decisions or plans about that at this point,” she said, and would not reveal if she would run as an independent or not.
“Look, you run for president because you believe you would be the best – the best candidate, because you believe you’d be the best president of the United States,” Cheney stated. “And so, any decision that I make about doing something that significant and that serious would be with the intention of winning and because I think I would be the best candidate.”
The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney claimed that the Republican National Committee and Trump would fear her as a presidential candidate.
Is she delusional?
After getting destroyed by over 35 points in her congressional primary, Cheney thinks she has a chance of sniffing the White House.
Not going to happen!
ABC News provided comments Cheney made regarding the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate:
During her sit-down interview with ABC’s Karl, Cheney weighed in on the FBI’s search executed at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence earlier this month and said she was ashamed that congressional Republicans had leapt to Trump’s defense and had accused the Justice Department of political malice.
“That’s a very serious thing. I think that when you think about the fact that we were in a position where the FBI, the Department of Justice, felt the need to execute a search warrant at the home of a former president — that’s a really serious thing for the nation,” she said.
