Former Sen. Jeff Flake writes for the Washington Post:
On Wednesday, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) will most likely lose her leadership post within the House Republican Conference, not because she has been untruthful.
Rather, she will lose her position because she is refusing to play her assigned role in propagating the “big lie” that the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump.
Cheney is more dedicated to the long-term health of our constitutional system than she is to assuaging the former president’s shattered ego, and for her integrity she may well pay with her career.
No, this is not the plot of a movie set in an asylum. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your contemporary Republican Party, where today there is no greater offense than honesty.

“Cheney has proved her fitness, and today it seems that adherents to the ‘big lie’ will cast her out,” Sen. Jeff Flake writes in @PostOpinions. “Hold your head high, congresswoman.” https://t.co/OQHaBlSCrT
