Representative Liz Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming, called out the “threat to democracy” posed by the Republican Party while speaking at the Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics. Representative Cheney is one of only two Republicans on the January 6th investigative committee and lost her re-election in Wyoming. She has been one of the few Republican members of Congress to take a stand against Trump and the majority of the Republican Party.

CHENEY: “Today, you know, the Chairman of the Republican state party and Wyoming is a member of The Oath Keepers. And it is a, it's a, it's, you have happening in our state what we see happening in a number of places around the country which is that people have gone in and have been elected to offices, to precinct level offices and others, and have taken over party structures in a way that that does present, I think a real threat to to democracy.”
