‘Liz Cheney is taking Mike Lee to Church’ on his past claim about Trump’s ‘illegal’ acts

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is at it again, reminding Donald Trump’s most loyal officials in elected office that they once condemned the former president’s actions on Jan. 6, 2021.

Cheney recently reminded Trump superfan Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) about a statement the MAGA lawmaker made condemning Trump’s actions from Jan. 6. That attention prompted Stefanik to delete the statement.

On Sunday, Cheney had a new target in her sights.

It started on March 8, when Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) posted the following insult to social media:

Guide for conservatives: 1. Find out what Liz Cheney would do. 2. Do the opposite.”

Two days later, Cheney hit back:

“Here you are on 1/6 explaining that Trump’s plan to seize power was illegal,” the ex-lawmaker wrote, linking to his own past statement. “It’s sad you’ve abandoned what you know is true.”

She then said, “You should take a break from spreading lunacy to read these remarks by Dallin Oaks,” and linked to a speech from the Mormon president. Lee is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The remarks are focused on the importance of the Constitution.

“I testify of the divinely inspired Constitution of the United States and pray that we who recognize the Divine Being who inspired it will always uphold and defend its great principles. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen,” Oaks wrote.

In response to Cheney’s message, a former conservative Republican wrote, “Liz Cheney is taking Mike Lee to Church…..sending him a talk from an LDS General Authority about the need to defend the Constitution.”

“I hope Mike reads it,” the user wrote. “Then maybe he can read Alma 2 and remember that the bad guys are the ones who tried to overthrow democracy.”
