Are values more important than power?

In U.S. government, we don’t see a lot of critique of Donald Trump from the right. One exception is Liz Cheney, who was the third-most powerful Republican in the House of Representatives when she voted to have Trump impeached in 2021. The bad news is that move cost her reelection. The good news is that it gave her time to write a book, which is the subject of our latest Instaread.

Principles Over Party

After the impeachment, House Republicans faced a crossroads. They could join Cheney in her pursuit of a path of bipartisan cooperation, or they could side with Trump no matter what. (We know how that turned out!) Cheney cites that moment as the party’s pivot away from its foundational values. Is that a fair assessment? Or is she giving herself too much credit?
