Cheney says Trump may have committed 'multiple' crimes, says Republicans 'more dangerous' than Dems
When asked about running as a third-party candidate for president, Cheney said, "We will do whatever it takes, as I said. He will not be the President of the United States again."
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said on Sunday the Jan. 6 committee is looking at "multiple criminal offenses" they believe former President Donald Trump may have committed in office, and that Republicans are "more dangerous" than Democrats.
When asked on NBC's "Meet the Press" about what crimes she thinks the former president committed, Cheney responded: "Look, I think that there are multiple criminal offenses ... that we are looking at." She did not go into details about the specific allegations.
Cheney, who lost her primary reelection bid to Trump-backed Harriet Hageman, was asked about the midterm elections, which are just over two weeks away.
"You've got to remind people that everybody has an obligation ... to defend the Constitution," Cheney said.
While some people may vote for their party no matter what, she said, "Right now you've got a lot of Republicans in particular. Democrats do the same thing, it just happens that our candidates are more dangerous right now."
NBC's Chuck Todd said that some people have suggested for Cheney to run as a third-party candidate just to prevent Trump from being reelected.
"Well, we will do whatever it takes, as I said. He will not be the President of the United States again," she responded.
