Fox host confronts GOP lawmaker over opposition to Cheney, asks if it's because she's 'not as loyal' to Trump
Wallace then asked Banks why he was"unwilling to discuss" Cheney's"criticism" of Trump."I'm not. And as a rank and file member of the House Republican Conference, Liz Cheney or anyone else in our conference can stay focused on other issues unrelated to us winning back the majority in the midterm election," he said."But I know that the belief that I have, Chris, that a majority of our conference has—that she's lost focus on the single mission that we have."
Later in the interview, Wallace pointed out that Cheney has simply been pointing out the reality that Trump continues to lie about the 2020 election."Liz Cheney is saying in fact that Donald Trump contributed to the riot [against the Capitol on January 6]," he said."Is it a lie that the election was stolen? Did he [Trump] contribute to the insurrection on the Capitol?"
Banks responded by saying he's never said that the election was"stolen." However, he said that he has"very serious concerns with how the election was conducted." The Indiana Republican was one of the 147 GOP lawmakers who objected to Biden's victory in key battleground states, backing groundless claims that there were valid concerns about widespread voter fraud. headtopics.com
House Republicans are expected to remove Cheney from her role as the No. 3 House Republican this week. On Sunday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, asserted in an interview withFoxBusiness that he backs Stefanik's bid to unseat Cheney. McCarthy previously supported Cheney after a group of GOP House members attempted to oust her earlier this year. In addition to McCarthy, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, a Louisiana Republican, and Trump have both endorsed Stefanik to replace Cheney.
Cheney was one of the 10 House Republicans to vote withDemocratsto impeach Trump following the attack by his supporters on the Capitol. Ahead of that vote, Cheney blasted the then president, saying that"there has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution." Notably, McCarthy blamed Trump for the attack on the Capitol at the time as well, but he declined to vote for the then president's impeachment.
Although Trump and his allies continue to claim that the 2020 election was fraudulent, they have not provided evidence to substantiate this extraordinary allegation. Dozens of election lawsuits filed in state and federal courts have failed. Even judges appointed by Trump and other Republicans dismissed or rejected the often bizarre allegations. Meanwhile, numerous audits and recounts in key battleground states—including in states where elections were overseen by Trump-supporting Republicans—have reaffirmed Biden's victory.Read more: Newsweek »
