We are joined this morning by our washington, correspondent, raquel martin live in d.c raquel good morning. So what key points did congresswoman cheney lay out in her speech on the house floor last night last night she spoke on the house floor explaining why she believes it is dangerous to support a lie that the election was stolen in 2020. She says that the republican party needs to distance itself from this saying that it is a direct threat to democracy. She referenced her a foreign policy experience and what she’s seen across the globe when it comes to the deterioration of different governments, and she is sending a stark warning to republicans not to attach themselves to this lie, and she also was saying that uh. What the president has done has been disproven and time and time again through courts and also through his own department of justice, who have said over and over again that there was no fraud found in this election all right. So what are congressional republicans who oppose cheney? What are they saying about her future involvement in the republican party? Well, many of them have remained tight lipped, but some have spoke out saying that she represents an old establishment. Part of the republican party and doesn’t represent where the party is today, which is definitely centered. More around former president donald trump. We know that a minority leader, kevin mccarthy, for instance, says he wants the party to remain united, so it looks like they’re going to be moving in that direction.

From what we’re hearing on the hill it looks like there will be enough support to oust cheney. There were just a few out there. Republicans, rather that are speaking out in her defense. Congresswoman kenzinger out of illinois is one. He also voted to impeach former president donald trump after the january 6 insurrection and says he believes that she is doing the right thing and she’ll be looked at in the history books in a positive light. All right, we’ll see raquel. Thank you so much elise stefanik cheney’s potential replacement. She represents new york’s 21st district we’ll watch that closely today.
