Prominent Republican critics of Donald Trump are becoming further marginalized in the party as even colleagues who privately oppose the former president want more than anything to stop talking about him.
Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming could be ousted as the No. 3 ranking House Republican this month because she refuses to quit criticizing Trump for claiming the 2020 election was stolen and allegedly fomenting the Jan. 6 ransacking of the United States Capitol. “The 2020 presidential election was not stolen,” Cheney tweeted Monday. “Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.”
