Liz Cheney, a former Wyoming representative for the Republican Party, has signed a new book contract, the timing of which is likely influenced primarily by former President Donald Trump.
“Set to be released just months before the 2024 primary and caucus season opens, the book, already titled Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning, will describe the threat to U.S. democracy she saw in the riots and still in” Trump, the Washington Examiner reported.
According to Little, Brown and Company, Cheney is portrayed as a courageous whistleblower who took great risks to disclose Trump’s role in attempting to challenge and impede President Joe Biden’s Electoral College vote, and she is now regarded as a martyr.
“Cheney will explain why she decided to stand almost alone against her party; why she risked her career, her seat, and her position in leadership to do what she knew was right,” a press release said.
Noted Publisher Bruce Nichols: “Liz Cheney sacrificed her seat in Congress to stand up for the Constitution, and thereby became a profile in courage for the nation. It is an honor for Little, Brown to publish this urgent, much-needed account.”
Cheney, who was Wyoming’s representative-at-large until she lost her seat to Trump supporter Harriet Hageman after picking a dispute with the former president, continued: “The last two years have demonstrated once again that our constitutional republic is not self-sustaining. It only endures due to the bravery and virtue of individual Americans. When history examines this era, each elected official will have to answer the query, “Did we fulfill our responsibilities?” “Were we faithful to our office oath?”
Given the timing of the book’s publication on November 14 and the fact that Cheney’s name has appeared in several presidential primary polls, some may interpret it as a preview of a potential presidential campaign by the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
The publisher noted further: “OATH AND HONOR is a memoir of these dramatic, history-changing events, and an inspirational call to action. It is a warning — at a moment when the threat has not passed — about the fragility of our constitutional republic and what is required to defend and sustain it. Cheney’s book will explain exactly what is at stake in 2024, and why no president who did what Donald Trump did can ever be given a second term.”
In an interview with BC Heights earlier this month, Cheney said of Trump regarding the disturbance at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021: “I believed he needed to be removed from office immediately.” Speculation is mounting that Cheney will run for the White House in 2024.
After calling Trump the “most dangerous domestic threat” and claiming Americans must “take great care in whom we entrust with power,” Cheney said, “We’ll see what happens” when asked about possibly leaving the Republican Party.
Cheney’s remarks come as a new poll reveals that her support has doubled in the aftermath of Trump’s indictment, potentially upending the 2024 Republican primary.
Before Trump’s indictment, Cheney’s approval rating was 5%, but after the news broke late last week, it increased to 10%. In the most recent Trafalgar Group survey of Republican voters, she is now in third place behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has fallen from 32% to 22%.
