Liz Cheney says Trump and GOP backers threaten democracy

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Liz Cheney is lashing out at leaders of her own Republican Party.

She’s accusing former President Donald Trump and his GOP supporters of following a path that would “undermine our democracy.”

The Wyoming Republican took to the House floor late Tuesday on the eve of a closed-door meeting in which House Republicans seem certain to oust her from a leadership post because of her clashes with the former president.

She says she won’t be silent as “others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law.”

Trump continues to falsely claim that he lost his reelection bid because of widespread cheating.
