Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., outside of her office on Capitol Hill in Washington, May 11, 2021.In a speech on the House floor on Tuesday night, Cheney described Trump’s continuing efforts to delegitimize the election results as “ a threat America has never seen before.”“A former president who provoked a violent attack on this Capitol in an effort to steal the election has resumed his aggressive effort to convince Americans that the election was stolen from him. He risks inciting further violence.”Defending her staunch conservative record, Cheney said “the most conservative of conservative principles is reverence for the rule of law.”  She said “will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy.”FILE – Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., center, accompanied by from left, Rep.
