( – Former Representative Liz Cheney, a Republican from Wyoming known for her critical stance against ex-President Trump, recently highlighted concerns about what she terms the “Putin wing” within the Republican Party. She emphasized the critical need to ensure that this faction does not gain control of the White House again.

During her appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Cheney expressed her alarm over Trump’s statements implying a reluctance to support NATO allies against Russian aggression and his lack of response to the demise of Alexei Navalny, a Russian figure who fought against corruption and championed democracy.

Cheney expressed, “It’s imperative that we treat Donald Trump’s statements with utmost seriousness. The emergence of a faction within the Republican Party that aligns with Putin’s views is something we cannot ignore.”

She further stated, “The pivotal issue in the upcoming election cycle is to prevent the Putin-aligned segment of our party from assuming control in the White House.”

Although Cheney refrained from endorsing any presidential candidates and remained undecided about her own potential candidacy, she was adamant about her intention to thwart Trump’s potential return to presidential office.

Highlighting Trump’s approach to international commitments, Cheney remarked, “Trump has essentially signaled that his administration might not honor our NATO obligations. This stance not only undermines our commitments but also poses a significant threat to our national security.”

Cheney was particularly critical of Trump’s comments on NATO, describing them as “disgraceful” and unprecedented in the history of U.S. presidencies. She underscored the dangerous implications of such a stance, labeling it as uninformed and perilous.

Additionally, Cheney linked Trump’s hints at pursuing retribution against political adversaries with the tragic fate of Navalny, suggesting a parallel between such retributive actions and the lawless retaliation seen in authoritarian regimes like Putin’s Russia.
