Former President Donald Trump was just vindicated. A new report has proven he was right all along and the DC swamp is terrified.
“If you try to drive him out of the Republican Party, half the people will leave,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). “It doesn’t mean you can’t criticize the president. It means the Republican Party cannot go forward without President Trump being part of it.”
The context of the discussion was the impending vote on whether Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) would retain her leadership role as chair of the House Republican Conference.
As predicted by Graham, Cheney would go on to lose her position — thereby leaving a vacancy in the No. 3 leadership spot for House Republicans. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) is expected to fill the role.
Graham said that Cheney wasn’t being ousted because she criticized the president or voted to impeach him, but rather because members no longer trusted her. “So, when you’re a leader, and people lose confidence in you, you can be fired,” he said.
Cheney, of course, thinks that the Republican Party should completely separate from Trump and Graham has warned against this notion repeatedly. It would be political suicide for the party.
