WHAT WE KNOW:
Wyoming Republican officials voted to censure Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY), the state’s representative-at-large, for her decision to impeach former President Donald Trump for incitement of insurrection back in January, when he was still in office.
Rep. Liz Cheney statement on Wyoming GOP censure: “My vote to impeach was compelled by the oath I swore to the Constitution. Wyoming citizens know that this oath does not bend or yield to politics or partisanship.”

We have sworn an oath under God to defend the Constitution. We uphold that oath at all times, not only when it is politically convenient.
Congress has no authority to overturn elections by objecting to electors. Doing so steals power from the states & violates the Constitution.
