Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) drew battle lines in a speech Wednesday widely billed as an address on the state of the Republican Party.Her remarks, delivered at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute in Simi Valley, California, addressed former President Donald Trump's grip on the GOP. Cheney, the vice chairwoman of the Jan. 6 committee, told members of her party they have to make a choice."The reality that we face today as Republicans, as we think about the choice in front of us — we have to choose because Republicans cannot both be loyal to Donald Trump and loyal to the Constitution," Cheney said to applause.
