Representative Liz Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming, said it was "disgraceful" for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to say Republicans would stop funding Ukraine. McCarthy said that House Republicans would not write a “blank check” for Ukraine if they won back the House majority. The United States has been sending Ukraine billions of dollars in financial aid and weaponry to help the country defend itself against the wrongful and brutal invasion by Russia. Representative Cheney has not shied away from critiquing the Republican Party. She lost her re-election campaign in Wyoming.

CHENEY: “I don't know that I can say I was surprised but I think it's, it's really disgraceful that today Minority leader McCarthy suggested that if the Republicans get the majority back that, that we will not continue to provide support for the Ukrainians. You know what, what's happening in Ukraine today shows is that democracy must be better armed than tyranny.”
