Cheney Condemns Ron Johnson as a Collaborator in Trump’s Power Retention Attempt

Former Representative Liz Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming, has made serious allegations against Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana. 

Cheney claims that Johnson collaborated with former President Trump in his efforts to retain power following the 2020 election

In an interview on “CBS News Sunday Morning,” Cheney asserted that Trump needed collaborators to achieve his goals, and she deemed Johnson to be one of them.

Cheney has previously labeled Johnson as “dangerous” and claimed that he was aware of the wrongness of his actions surrounding the 2020 election. 

Johnson led an amicus brief that supported a Texas lawsuit to overturn election results in multiple states. 

He also voted against the election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania following the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.

Johnson won the Speakership on October 25 after a period of turmoil within the Republican Party in the House. 

Cheney contended in the interview that Johnson knowingly supported Trump’s efforts to undermine the election and is now aware that his actions and statements are wrong.

Former Representative Liz Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming, has made serious allegations against Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana.

She attributed his behavior to a desire to please Trump, which she believes makes him dangerous.

During the interview, CBS reporter John Dickerson asked Cheney to confirm her assertion that the Speaker of the House was collaborating in an attempt to overthrow the last election. Cheney replied with a definitive “Absolutely.”

Cheney, a vocal critic of Trump, is set to release a book on Tuesday titled “Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning.” 

The book criticizes the modern Republican Party and delves into the January 6 insurrection. 

Notably, Cheney served as the House select committee’s vice chair investigating the Capitol attack.

Last year, Cheney made a public departure from Congress after condemning her own party for its support of Trump. She ultimately lost her primary in August 2022.

The allegations made by Cheney against Johnson further highlight the deep divisions and controversies within the Republican Party, particularly regarding the actions and legacy of the Trump administration.

As Cheney remains steadfast in her criticism of Trump and his allies, the release of her memoir is expected to add fuel to the ongoing debates within the party.
