Cheney, the No. 3 ranking House Republican in leadership, is high on the Trump world’s most wanted list for her vote last month to impeach the then-president on a charge of inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by right-wing extremists and other Trump supporters. The three-term statewide congresswoman was the most high profile of the 10 House Republicans who joined all 222 Democrats in the chamber to impeach Trump, with 197 GOP representatives voting against impeachment.
A Republican source with knowledge of Trump Jr.’s political thought process told Fox News last week, “Don’s focus in 2022 will be on the Democrats, to help the GOP retake the House and Senate. It’s not Don’s wish to see an all-encompassing Republican civil war, but he views Liz Cheney to the exception to that rule.”
