Cheney Memo Blasts “Dangerous” Election Challenge

Axios reports:

GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (Wyo.) wrote in a memo to her Republican conference on Sunday that “objections set an exceptionally dangerous precedent,” NBC’s Alex Moe first reported and Axios has confirmed.

Cheney singled out Cruz’s proposal for a commission as “even more problematic” and asked if Republicans backing the effort realized “they were in essence proposing to delay the inaugural,” since the suggested audit would take months.

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R.-La), in a bipartisan statement on Sunday alongside Collins, Romney and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), said that “further attempts to cast doubt on the legitimacy” of the election are “contrary to the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
