Liz Cheney calls for Speaker Johnson to fall on his sword to get Ukraine funding bill passed

Neocon Liz Cheney, the former Representative from Wyoming, believes trading House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) for $60 billion for Ukraine is a good deal.

“It’s worth it if he has to lose his Speakership in order to make sure that freedom survives, in order to make sure that the United States of America continues to play its leadership role in the world,” Cheney told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday’s “State of the Union.”

As BizPac Review reported, the so-called “bipartisan border deal” was deemed dead on arrival in the House for its failure to close the border while providing billions in taxpayer dollars to secure the borders of Ukraine and Israel.

Making matters worse, hidden in the legislation is “an impeachment time bomb,” according to Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio).

“The legislation explicitly requires funding for Ukraine well into the next presidential term,” Vance wrote in the American Conservative. “The Washington Post has already reported this provision was added to control Donald Trump.”

But according to Cheney, Speaker Johnson should “search deep in his conscience.”

“History will look back at this moment and ask, ‘What did Mike Johnson do?” she stated.

“He ought to read what’s happening in Ukraine today,” Cheney told Tapper. “He ought to read about the slaughter that’s going on.”

Mike Johnson should “understand that we are at a turning point in the history, not just of this nation, but of the world.”

“He’s gonna have to explain to future generations to his kids to his grandkids, whether or not he did what was right, whether or not he was a force for good and aided the cause of freedom, or whether he continued down this path of cowardice and doing what Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin want him to do,” Cheney proclaimed.

Online, many think Liz Cheney should keep her mouth shut.

“I don’t think Liz Cheney should be talking about others’ conscience,” one user on X replied. “That woman is responsible for lies with respect to Iraq, where people died.”

“Our family members served,” the user said. “Some of them came back in pieces or not at all. She needs to go home and ask for redemption herself. Obviously, she’s not capable of that.”

“Who is she?” asked another user. “Daughter of the big warmonger who shot his buddy?”

“How much is she getting in kick backs?” wondered a third.

“Deep state is hurting for cash,” surmised one X user. “Panic is setting in.”
