State GOP says Cheney’s vote to impeach Trump doesn’t represent Wyoming

CASPER, Wyo — The Wyoming Republican Party has responded to the “whirlwind” created by U.S. House Representative Cheney’s Liz Cheneys vote to endorse the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

“There has not been a time during our tenure when we have seen this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans, with the anger and frustration being palpable in the comments we have received,” Friday’s statement read.

“The consensus is clear that those who are reaching out to the Party vehemently disagree with Representative Cheney’s decision and actions.”

They say Cheney denied Trump due process is not representing the interests of the 70% of Wyomingite who voted for Trump. 

Over 27,000 people had signed an online petition to recall her, though there is no way to statutorily do so.

The Wyoming GOP said the transcript of Trump’s speech does not reveal him to have incited the riot that his supporters carried out at the U.S. Capitol Jan 6, and referred to Trump’s statement from the White House Wednesday saying “there must be NO violence.”

The statement said the GOP had watched the leftists “kill” and “riot” in cities and communities “for 7 months.” Protests erupted nationwide for George Floyd, who was killed by police in May 2020.

The statement enumerated the nature of the comments and outcry received:

By announcing her decision to vote for impeachment Representative Cheney denied President Trump due process; she judged the “evidence” before it was presented and refused to listen to the arguments made.

Wyoming voted for the reelection of President Trump by a margin of 70% to 30%. 195,000 Wyomingites voted for President Trump. Representative Cheney is in Washington, DC to represent Wyoming’s interest, not the interest of the beltway elites.

President Trump did not incite anyone to riot. Read the transcript of what he said and watch the video.

We have watched the leftists and progressives in this country riot, burn, kill, maim, loot and destroy cities and communities for 7 months, often with Democrat leaders egging them on, bailing them out and refusing to condemn their actions.

Representative Cheney has aligned herself with leftists who are screaming that what happened last Wednesday is the “worst thing ever in our history” (or similar such claims). That is absurd and shows their lack of knowledge of history as well as their willingness to skew the facts to further their corrupt agenda.

The Democrats are using this to smear the entire conservative movement and all Republicans. By voting to impeach, Representative Cheney is helping them in that effort.

Wyoming’s way of life and our entire economic future is under attack. We count on our elected officials to protect us. This move to impeach President Trump shows that we have a real reason to fear what is going to happen under the Biden administration.

This move to impeach President Trump makes it that much more difficult for our country to solve the serious problems we have, including Chinese and Iranian aggression, our overwhelming debt, and the catastrophic response to covid19.
