Liz Cheney Warns Supreme Court Against Aiding President Trump

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) gave the Supreme Court a vivid warning this week against ruling in favor of former President Donald Trump in his April 25 hearing regarding presidential immunity.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) charged President Trump with attempting to overturn the 2020 election results after characterizing the events of Jan. 6, 2021, as an “insurrection.” 

Cheney has not hidden her disdain for the former president since the Capitol protests, and her comments this week caused outrage among conservatives when she indirectly addressed the Supreme Court during a recent speech at Drake University, saying, “When [Trump] now is pushing this idea that a president should have complete immunity against any criminal prosecution for anything he does in office and he’s pushed this appeal to the Supreme Court, I think it’s very important that the Supreme Court recognizes what he’s doing is a delaying tactic.” 


“It cannot be the case that a president of the United States can attempt to overturn an election and seize power and that our justice system is incapable of holding a trial and holding him to account before the next election,” Cheney continued. 

Cheney was removed from her position as chair of the House Republican Conference in 2021 after attacking President Trump and voting in favor of his impeachment. 

The small amount of popularity the former congresswoman had gained during her campaign was exstinguished immediately when she went after Trump and she was banished from the Republican Party when she disavowed Trump’s statements about irregularities during the 2020 election. 


In February 2024, a federal panel of appeals ruled that the former president could be charged for his reported role in “overturning” the presidentiall election in 2020, despite Trump and many respected legal scholars asserting presidential immunity.

President Trump’s unprecedented and unrelenting persecution has seemed to only help him in the polls, with the former President dominating his opponents and becoming the presumptive nominee of the GOP very early in the election cycle. 

RINOs like Cheney are running out of options to stop Trump’s march to victory; so assisting in the Democrats’ lawfare attacks may be their best chance to achieve a second term for the Biden administration.
