Liz Cheney Issues Dire Warning About Donald Trump and the 2024 Presidential Election

Cheney kicked off this year’s Town Hall lecture series by calling Trump’s actions on Jan. 6, 2021, not just a “dereliction of duty,” but an act of “depravity.”

Warning her Sarasota audience not to become “numb” to the attack on the United States Capitol that occurred on Jan. 6, 2021, and former President Donald Trump’s role in the events of that day, former U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney on Tuesday outlined the potential consequences of a second Trump administration should he be elected again this November.

Cheney is a lifelong Republican and the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney. In 2017, she and her father were awarded the Republican Party of Sarasota County’s Statesman and Stateswoman of the Year award. She split with many of her Republican colleagues in Congress after the events of Jan. 6 and voted to impeach Trump for his role in the insurrection, later serving as the vice chair of the congressional committee that investigated the attack on the Capitol. She was in Sarasota today as part of the Ringling College Library Association’s Town Hall speaker series. Both a morning speech and an evening talk were sold out.
