Cheney Predicts ‘New Conservative Party’ If Trump Nominated

Outgoing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the Democratic Party’s favorite Republican, predicted Sunday that the GOP will fragment if former President Donald Trump becomes the 2024 presidential nominee.

Cheney, who was emphatically defeated in her party’s primary earlier this year by Harriet Hageman, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that if that happens, “there will be a new conservative party that rises.”

Foreseeing that the party “will shatter,” the co-chair of the Jan. 6 committee said that Republicans have to “come back from where we are right now.” Cheney called it a “very dangerous and toxic place,” and if that doesn’t happen, there will be an alternative for conservative voters.

The representative lost her primary to the Trump-backed challenger but almost immediately signaled a possible intention to launch a presidential run in 2024.

How that ties in with her prediction for a new conservative political party is unknown. Cheney also voiced her openness to backing Democratic opponents of Trump supporters, much to the ire of her party colleagues.

Late last month, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney flatly declared that “if (Trump) is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.” She added that she will do “whatever it takes” to ensure the former president “isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office.”

Apparently that means supporting Democrats and attempting to divide the GOP.

This should hardly come as a surprise, as Cheny was one of only 10 House Republicans to support impeaching the former president. This did not sit well at home as demonstrated by her sound primary defeat.

That loss illustrated the larger trend, as only two of the 10 House Republicans who cast votes in favor of impeachment made it through primary challenges. Three others were defeated and four decided to retire or not stand for reelection.

As for her term, that ends Jan. 3, 2023. Despite her expressed interest when she conceded her primary race, there have not been specific statements on plans either way for the representative.

When asked Sunday about her intentions, Cheney just referred to “peaceful transitions of power” and making sure the Republic does not unravel. That, she claimed, is what she is focused on.
