Liz Cheney Calls On SCOTUS To Rule Decisively In Trump Case

Former US Representative Liz Cheney has voiced her displeasure with the Supreme Court’s handling of Trump’s claims of presidential immunity.

On April 25, the Supreme Court will hear arguments about Trump’s immunity claims. The legal team has argued that Trump should not be charged in the DOJ case concerning alleged attempts to sabotage the 2020 election result since he is a president.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) accused the ex-president of attempting to nullify the 2020 presidential election results last year. The result was the riot that broke out in the Capitol on January 6, 2021, and there were claims that some states with sway over the election had attempted to send pro-Trump electors. Pledging not guilty to all allegations, he has always maintained his innocence.

Cheney is certain that the court will handle this appeal in a responsible and timely manner. But she did say that the court’s moves might make it harder for the public to access evidence, which some could see as an effort to hide it.

The Supreme Court must recognize the underlying character of President Trump’s actions. According to Cheney, Trump is trying to buy time by appealing to the Supreme Court and arguing for complete protection from criminal prosecution while in office.

Cheney feels an attempt to revoke an election and assume power without being tried and held responsible by our legal system before the next election is intolerable for a president of the US.

She begged the court to recognize the significance of making the material issues of the case available to the American people before the 2024 election.

On X, the Republican Voters Against Trump account published a video of Cheney’s remarks about Trump. As of Thursday morning, the video had more than 150,000 views.

From 2017 to 2023, Cheney represented Wyoming in the House of Representatives.

She was one of ten Republicans in the House who decided to impeach Trump for his suspected role in the unrest that occurred on January 6, which enraged the former president.

She was soundly defeated in the 2022 GOP primary by Representative Harriet Hageman, who got Trump’s endorsement by more than 37 percentage points. Even as Trump gains clout inside the Republican Party, Cheney maintains his vehement opposition.
