Friday 1 July 2022 02:39 PM Cheney calls out chief rival as 'beholden to Donald Trump' trends now

Rep. Liz Cheney shamed her Republican rivals for peddling former President Donald Trump's false 2020 election fraud claims, including the Wyoming House candidate Trump chose to take her place, Harriet Hageman. 

'I think that she can't say that it wasn't stolen because she's completely beholden to Donald Trump,' Cheney said of Hageman during Thursday night's Wyoming House debate. 

Cheney shared the stage with four Republicans trying to unseat her, the most prominent being Hageman, as well as small business owner Robyn Belinskey, state Sen. Anthony Bouchard and U.S. Army veteran Denton Knapp.

Hageman opened the debate by railing against 'two different systems of justice in this country,' suggesting Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton and even President Joe Biden are treated differently 'conservatives, or Republicans, who are being punished for expressing a First Amendment right' - seemingly a reference to those involved in the January 6 Capitol attack. 

Cheney - the Republican co-chair of the January 6 House select committee - hit Hageman back when it was her turn to speak. 

Cheney asserted that the assault on the Capitol by Trump's supporters was 'clearly an attempt to delay to count the electoral votes.'
