Resolution from the Central Committee of the Wyoming Republican Party.
Censure of U.S. Representative to Wyoming Liz Cheney
Passed by the Wyoming Republican Party on 6 February 2021.
WHEREAS, The Wyoming Republican Party recognizes that an overwhelming majority of the electorate in the state of Wyoming voted to retain President Donald J. Trump as President of the United States; and
WHEREAS, The Wyoming Republican Party recognizes that a slightly smaller majority of the electorate in the state of Wyoming voted to retain Liz Cheney as Wyoming’s sole Representative of the people’s voice in the U.S. House of Representatives; and
WHEREAS, An extremely vocal majority of Wyoming Republicans recognize there was significant irregularities in the election process in several states across the country; and
WHEREAS, Articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump were filed and voted on by the members of the U.S. House of Representatives with no formal hearings held, no quantifiable evidence presented, no witnesses sworn to give testimony, and no right to cross examine the accusers provided; and
WHEREAS, Representative Cheney ignored and violated the spirit of House Republican Caucus rules by disclosing her intent to join the Democrat Party’s proposed move to vote for impeachment to the media prior to having any evidence presented to the body; and
WHEREAS, Representative Cheney did vote in favor of the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump despite the lack of any formal hearing being held, evidence being presented, witnesses being sworn to testify, or accusers being questioned; and
WHEREAS, No evidence exists that President Trump has ever called for a violent response to political opposition. Where in comparison, Representative Cheney’s new political allies on the left have continually called for violent uprisings and destruction of both personal and public property, to include raising bail money for the insurrectionists; and
WHEREAS, Ample video evidence suggests the riot at the capital was instigated by Antifa and BLM radicals, and FBI sources have revealed they have, and have had, evidence the incursion was planned weeks in advance of the January 6th rally and the President’s speech; and
WHEREAS, Representative Cheney cast her vote without any quantifiable evidence of High Crimes or Misdemeanors; and
WHEREAS, Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney was elected by a majority of Wyoming voters to represent the will, the values, and the stated preferences of the majority of Wyoming voters; and
WHEREAS, The voters of the State of Wyoming expressed their will, their values, and their stated preferences in re-electing President Donald J. Trump by a larger margin, and in greater numbers, than those who re-elected Representative Cheney; and
WHEREAS, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court is obligated by Article I, Section 3, Clause 6 of the US Constitution to preside over impeachment trials, and Chief Justice John Roberts has declined to preside over this impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate, indicating an unwillingness of the Supreme Court to lend legitimacy to this impeachment proceeding.
WHEREAS, Representative Cheney has violated the trust of her voters, failed to faithfully represent a very large majority of motivated Wyoming voters, and neglected her duty to represent the party and the will of the people who elected her to represent them. The consequence of Representative Cheney’s actions has resulted in numerous Republicans in Wyoming, and across the United States, indicating that they will either no longer actively participate in the Republican Party, are stepping down from Precinct Representative positions within the party, or have already changed their voter registration and left the party entirely, (because of) or as long as Representative Cheney holds office.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, The Wyoming Republican Party does hereby censure U.S. Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming for her actions on Wednesday, January 13th 2021, as those actions stand in contradiction to the quantifiable will of the majority of the electorate of Wyoming, and for devaluing the political influence of the State of Wyoming by voting in favor of a process that followed no known hearing process, provided no evidence to consider, called no witnesses to be sworn, and allowed none of the accusers to be questioned by the accused; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, The Wyoming Republican Party calls on Representative Liz Cheney to immediately resign from her position and allow the Wyoming Republican Party to nominate her replacement, and that Representative Liz Cheney immediately repay donations to her 2020 campaign made by the Wyoming Republican Party and to any County Party that requests reimbursement.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, The Wyoming Republican party will withhold any future political funding for Liz Cheney.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, The Wyoming County Republican Party calls on Representative Liz Cheney to appear before this body at its next stated meeting to explain her actions to this body, the State Republican Party membership, and the entirety of the concerned Wyoming electorate.
