Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) reportedly orchestrated a secret media campaign with a left-wing mainstream media publication to counter rhetoric from then-President Donald Trump about the results of the 2020 election.
The New Yorker noted that Eric Edelman, a friend of Cheney’s who served as a national security adviser to her father, former Vice-President Dick Cheney, revealed the following tidbit to the publication:
Cheney’s rupture with the House Republican Conference has become all but final in recent days, but it has been months in the making. Edelman revealed that Cheney herself secretly orchestrated an unprecedented op-ed in the Washington Post by all ten living former Defense Secretaries, including her father, warning against Trump’s efforts to politicize the military. The congresswoman not only recruited her father but personally asked others, including Trump’s first Defense Secretary, Jim Mattis, to participate.
I think this bit in @sbg1’s latest story hasn’t been reported before.
