A top advisor for former President
Cheney has increasingly found herself on the outs within her caucus as she continues to criticize Trump for refusing to acknowledge the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election that he lost to President Joe Biden.After the November election, Trump spent months attempting to overturn the election results in a number of key states, including Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. His campaign team lost nearly every major court battle.
Cheney has chastised Trump for his role in the January 6 Capitol riot, accusing him of feeding the insurrectionists with lies about the election results.The conservative congresswoman, who's the No. 3 Republican in the House, was one of only 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for "incitement of insurrection" in his second impeachment trial.

Cheney received the backing of her caucus to keep her leadership role in a February vote, but she will almost certainly face a vote to remove her as conference chair next week.
Trump on Wednesday lashed out at Cheney from his newly launched blog.
"Warmonger Liz Cheney, who has virtually no support left in the Great State of Wyoming, continues to unknowingly and foolishly say that there was no Election Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election when in fact, the evidence, including no Legislative approvals as demanded by the US Constitution, shows the exact opposite," he wrote.The Post on Wednesday published an op-ed written by Cheney, where she argued that it was imperative for the GOP to adhere to the rule of law and lashed out at the former president.
