Dick Cheney says Trump is a 'domestic threat' in campaign ad

In our nation's 246-year history, there has never been a greater threat to our Republic than Donald Trump. The former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney talking about Donald Trump in a campaign ad for his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney, who is up for re-election in Wyoming. Both Cheneys and Trump are Republicans.

In the campaign spot entitled He Knows It, Dick Cheney goes on to say that Trump tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters rejected him. The viral video shows the former two-term vice president and long-time congressman, as well as defense secretary, praising his daughter's role as vice chair of the Jan. 6 select committee hearings. The bipartisan House committee investigated the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, and presenting evidence that Trump and his supporters knew he lost the 2020 election, but went on to inspire the riot at the Capitol complex, where Congress was meeting to certify Democrat Joe Biden's electoral victory.

He lost his election, and he lost big. Dick Cheney says that he knows it, and deep down, I think most Republicans know it.

Cheney says he would never lie to his supporters. From 2001 to 2009, Dick Cheney, vice president under George W. Bush, supported the party line and supported Trump's 2016 presidential bid once Trump became the GOP nominee and reportedly went on to appear at a high-dollar Trump fundraiser in 2019.

She will never do anything more important than lead the effort to make sure Donald Trump is never again near the Oval Office, her father said in the ad of Liz Cheney, drawing a contrast with so many in our party who he characterizes as too scared to honor their oaths of office.

Trump favored the Republican nomination over DeSantis for 2024, ahead of ex-president s first appearance in D.C. since leaving the White House.

Liz Cheney has represented Wyoming's lone house district since 2017. She is facing a primary challenge from the Trump-backed Harriet Hageman in November. Hageman held a 22 point lead over Cheney in a July Casper Star-Tribune poll.

A group of prominent conservatives released a 72-sided report that debunked Trump's claims of election fraud in the 2020 presidential election. The group concluded that Trump had failed to produce substantial evidence. Key Words: Liz Cheney calls Trump a domestic threat, says the GOP can't be loyal to both him and the Constitution.
