Liz Cheney is an American politician, and legal professional serves as the U.S. Vice President since 2021. She is currently the House Republican Conference Chairman, the third-highest position in the Republican leadership. Earlier, she served as the chief of staff to the vice president under George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush.
Cheney has been labeled one of the most powerful women in Washington D.C. by several congress members. She has a strong support base among her colleagues for being a strong advocate for abortion rights and the sanctity of human life. She is often mentioned as a possible running mate for Donald Trump in the next presidential election. A September 12th press release from the Republican Conference, titled “Liz Cheney: Trump & Liz Cheney Should Be a Team,” stated that the two were indeed a perfect match.
The press release included a quote from Cheney, where she discussed the future of the Republicans in Washington D.C. after the November midterm elections. She was asked if she thought there would be a need for a special session of Congress in January to address the recent developments concerning the Russia investigation regarding whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian intelligence officials to interfere in the election. Cheney stated that she fully supports Congress’s upcoming sessions regarding oversight of the executive branch and the ongoing Russia probe. However, she did not call for a special session of Congress to impeach President Trump.
Cheney was also asked if she thought there would be a need to impeach the president if he did not resign before taking office. She responded, “I think it depends on what happens in the course of this investigation.” Asked if she thought there would be a need to impeach the president if there were tapes of him speaking with Russians about lifting the Russian government’s sanctions? Cheney responded,” Well, I’m not sure. I mean, who’s going to ask me that question?”
The question was asked to her by Wyoming News Radio’s Jon Kirts. Kirts later reported that Liz Cheney told him she did not know the need to impeach the president until after the end of the year. According to Kirts, Cheney told him she was not sure if she would have support among the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives if she were to begin a campaign to impeach Trump. Cheney then said that she did not plan to run against Trump in 2021, but she was not sure she would vote to impeach him.
Cheney was among several people who hoped to be considered for the vice-presidential nomination this year. In the meantime, she has remained busy raising money for a political action committee called Courage and Opportunity. According to the website, Courage and Opportunity are planning to launch a series of political action strategy initiatives in the fall of 2021 to “defend the Constitution and advance conservative principles.” In January, the group plans to launch an initiative to “vigorously defend” the legislation passed in January by the state’s congress members and to “promote free-market capitalism.”
Does Liz Cheney have a point? Should Republicans go after Democrats when it comes to impeaching Obama? Some Republicans are certainly criticizing the Obama Administration, and some Democratic members of Congress have jumped on the “obstructionist” bandwagon when it comes to Obama’s executive orders. But is there a correlation between Democrats obstructing Obama’s agenda and Republicans trying to impeach the president?
One of the arguments some Republicans have made against impeaching Obama is that some of the policies the president has put into place are unworkable. The argument goes something like this; if we pass a law that says any officer of the federal government may not charge someone with criminal conduct unless they can prove it is “undischarged” or “proved not guilty.”
The problem with that is the officers who decide whether or not to charge someone can make their decisions based on their political whims. Will some Tea-Party types who oppose the Obama Administration want to take this approach to impeach the president? Probably not, but they certainly have a lot of opinions, and if they feel the system is stacked against them, then they’re free to express those opinions.
