The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to impeach President Donald Trump for “high crimes and misdemeanors” for inciting an insurrection against the federal government at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans who voted for impeachment. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

Cheney Votes to Impeach


Congresswoman Cheney, shortly after voting for impeachment, held a conference call with members of the Wyoming media. Cheney began the call explaining why she voted to impeach the President.

The House, by a vote 232 to 197, approved a single article of impeachment that charges President Trump with “inciting violence against the United States” and requests his immediate removal from office and the disqualification from ever holding office again. It is the first time in American history that a president has been impeached twice.

Never before in the history of the United States has the Congress shown so much disrespect for the President. They have been after this President from the moment he was elected. It means nothing that a democratic controlled house voted to impeach him. They have no credibility. And Liz Cheney is only interested in an agenda that has little to do with Wyoming interests but to get reelected. We will see how that works out in two years.

Congress lady Cheney, thank you for doing doing your job. Thank you for not supporting a president that you know has been lying for so long and the people who needed to stand up to him and call him out, have not done so. That is why our country is where it is today.

Liz Cheney does not represent Wyoming conservatives. We need a new young face to run against her and get her out. She is about the Cheney family business. Foreign wars to enrich her family. Let’s be smart Wyoming.

As an old time Republican {Before Trump} , I admire a Republican who can vote thoughtfully instead of worrying what Trump wants. Four years of Trump has rotted our democracy and brought us to an invasion of the hallowed halls of OUR capitol. Neo-Nazis, white Supremacists, Klanners and others who have hidden in dark basements until they were enabled and encouraged by Trump, did this- NOT Republicans. The Republican party used to believe in fiscal responsibility, rights of others and Our Constitution, but that all dissolved in the Trump abomination. What happened a week ago can only be called an insurrection, an attempt by Trump to take over our government. Liz Cheney voted honestly and saw the coup attempt for what it was. What more can you ask of a Legislator???

Liz Cheney deserves credit for bravely standing up to fascist insurrectionists. It is better late than never to do what is right. We the majority of Americans are on record now twice telling the world through impeachments that Donald Trump does not represent us. He is the embodiment of all that is wrong in this country and we the majority do not agree with him nor do we support him. I applaud Liz for standing with the majority of Americans in recognizing Donald Trump is dangerous and holding him accountable for his actions.

That majority you speak of needs to subtract three million votes for the voters that do not exist.

If someone could please explain to me what Trump actually did to qualify grounds for impeachment, I would appreciate it.

Reminder: Kamala Harris is recorded saying that there should be “unrest in the streets”. And she also raised bail money for individuals who were arrested while rioting.

So what did Trump do?

He defeated their “queen-in-waiting” in 2016 and thus was forever targeted as an “enemy.” Just look at the ridiculous epithets assigned to him, even on this board, e.g. the “tangerine criminal.” The entire effort since 2016 has been directed to thwart and, as they hoped, remove “Orange Man Bad” from American politics. And Liz Cheney just aided and abetted them in their attempt at doing just that.

David Williams is absolutely right! A review of the transcript of the president’s address reveals that he called for “peaceful demonstrations,” and there was not one syllable about inciting a riot or any violence whatsoever. The Dems wanted history to reflect that Trump is the only “twice impeached president.” If Liz Cheney had any character, she would have reviewed the actual timeline of the events as specified by John Solomon on this excellent website “Just the News.” This entire affair reeks of the kind of “spurious act” which Hermann Goering set up with the infamous Reichstag fire in Germany in 1933. Cheney would to well to study that historical event as it was used to justify to the German people the totalitarian actions which were almost immediately undertaken. As the saying goes, “those who don’t learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.” Cheney has thoroughly disgraced herself and embarrassed the people of Wyoming who voted 70-30 percent for this president. She is supposed to represent those people, not some bogus “bipartisan” effort to humiliate and isolate the president that Wyomingites overwhelmingly elected.

Trump was right about one thing…. He said he could shoot people in daylight on main street and it would not bother his supporters. SAD!!!

She is just like her old man and her career needs to be over. Another carpet bagger with a vacation home in Jackson that lives off the tax dollars of people she fails to represent.
