    Cheney Sides With Dems Again To Stick It To Trump Ahead Of Election

    Published on

    The issues surrounding the voting fraud in the 2020 presidential election are still reverberating, but some Dems want to shut down those questions.

    The former president Trump has actively promoted maintaining election fraud at the forefront of conversations and has never backed down from his charge that the results of the 2020 presidential election were incorrect.

    Some Democrats forget that they themselves screamed foul when Trump thrashed Clinton in the 2916 election.

    In order to demonstrate that they disagreed, the Republican Party assembled a 10-minute montage of Democrats, including the party’s 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton and then-Vice President Joe Biden, all of whom denied that Donald Trump’s electoral victory was legal.

    Candidates who support Trump have won the majority of Republican primary elections across the nation.

    One such instance occurred recently in Wyoming, where Trump-backed attorney Harriet Hageman soundly defeated incumbent Liz Cheney, winning 66.3 percent of the vote to the incumbent’s 28.9 percent.

    “Wyoming has spoken on behalf of everyone all across this great country who believes in the American dream, who believes in liberty, and who recognizes that our natural rights – the freedom of speech, freedom of religion, equal protection, and due process, come from God, they do not come from the Government,” Hageman stated in a victory speech.

    In August, outgoing Cheney vowed to assist some Democrats in winning elections after losing to GOP rival Harriet Hageman, whose campaign was supported by Trump.

    Cheney is teaming up with Democrats on new legislation that resembles Republican legislation on voting integrity.

    In an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Cheney lashed out against Republican “election deniers.”

    “I’m going to be very focused on working to ensure that we do everything we can not elect election deniers,” she said.

    Cheney continued, “We’ve got election deniers that have been nominated for really important positions all across the country. I’m going to work against those people. I’m going to work to support their opponents.”

    Next Monday, Cheney is anticipated to present a bill that might limit the vice president’s power while adding new barriers to elector challenge.

    According to Fox News on Saturday, the bill is aimed at “Trump’s challenge of the 2020 election that led to violent protests at the Capitol” and is set to be introduced alongside Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a Democrat from California. It would “reform the way electoral votes are counted in presidential elections.”

    The source also said:

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said Thursday on the House floor that the bill could get a vote as early as next week. The two lawmakers had not introduced the bill as of Friday afternoon, but it’s been clear for some time that a bill is in the works.

    Both Cheney, who lost her primary election in August and won’t return to Congress next year, and Lofgren sit on the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. In July, the two lawmakers indicated that legislation to amend the Electoral Count Act of 1887 was on the way.

    The two MPs said in a statement that “The Select Committee has been considering legislative recommendations based on its findings concerning the January 6 attack and will share those soon. These will include a bipartisan approach to the Electoral Count Act.”

    The committee’s January recommendations may also be incorporated into the future legislation, according to Lofgren, the chair of the Committee on House Administration.

    “One of those recommendations was to make it harder for members of Congress to raise objections to the electoral votes of a given state when it meets in a joint session to count the votes,”according to Fox News.

    “Under current law, only one lawmaker from the House and one from the Senate is needed to object, and Lofgren’s report recommended that one third of all members of both the House and Senate would be needed to object.

    “Lofgren’s report also called for language to narrow the role the vice president plays when electoral votes are counted. It said the vice president should not preside over the joint session of Congress, and should have no procedural say in the process.

    That language reflects complaints from Democrats and some Republicans that former President Trump urged then-Vice President Mike Pence to challenge the electoral count,”  Fox News noted.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    The committee’s report also recommended that Congress’ role be limited to generally accepting the electoral results of states, and that if any major problems arise, they should be addressed on approval of a supermajority.

    Borrowing from a previous non-partisan bill, some reforms are again debated. CONTINUE READING…
