Congressman Mike Gallagher (R-WI) spoke with Guy Benson about the mounting criticisms and attacks against Rep. Liz Cheney from GOP Colleagues. Congressman Gallagher defended Cheney by saying.
"So, first of all, let me say that I work extremely closely with Liz on any number of national security issues, and I think we're lucky to have her as our conference chair. She is a if not the leading voice when it comes to national security and making the case for what I would call a solid Reagan foreign policy of peace through strength. She's also exceptionally tough. And so it doesn't surprise me that when they started attacking her, she pushed back. And I just think this is not helpful. I've always thought it was a feature, not a bug of the Republican Party, that we, unlike the Democrats, welcomed a diverse range of views and didn't try and silence dissent. And I myself have had disagreements with the White House. And, you know, the people that care the least about it, you know, tend to be the president and the chief of staff, whereas some of his allies are the ones that take offense to it. So, listen, I don't think it is helpful. Liz Cheney is not stepping down. She's too valuable to the party. She's been a fan, doing a fantastic job as conference chair. I look forward to talking to my colleagues in the Freedom Caucus, and I'm good friends with some of them about their concerns. But I just can't see how this helps us going into November."
