Liz Cheney rips McConnell over Trump meeting: ‘History will remember the shame’

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) hit Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for meeting with former President Trump alongside the Senate GOP on Thursday.

Cheney, who left Congress after losing reelection to her seat in 2022, said the meeting shows McConnell is enabling the former president, whom she called “a danger to our Republic.”

“Mitch McConnell knows Trump provoked the violent attack on our Capitol and then ‘watched television happily’ as his mob brutally beat police officers and hunted the Vice President,” she wrote on social platform X. “He knows Trump refused for hours to tell his mob to leave and ‘even then with police officers bleeding … he kept repeating his election lies and praising the criminals.’” 

“He knows Trump committed a ‘disgraceful dereliction of duty’ and is a danger to our Republic,” she continued. “Trump and his collaborators will be defeated, and history will remember the shame of people like McConnell who enabled them.”
