(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Neocon Paul Ryan (remember him?) will reportedly host a fundraiser for Never Trumper Rep. Liz Cheney next month.
Rep. Cheney, who voted to convict former President Donald Trump but who somehow managed to maintain her position as House GOP Conference chairwoman, will host a “virtual event” on Thursday, March 25, at 11 am Eastern. Breitbart reports how the invitation recommends that donors make “suggested contributions” of $2,900 just to attend the event or $5,800 to officially “co-host” the event.
Breitbart also noted that the “Liz Cheney for Wyoming” campaign address that donors are asked to make payments to is actually based in Alexandria, Virginia – just outside of Washington, D.C. Something that is almost certainly going to be used in the primary campaigns against her in the future.
She lives in the swamp and she doesn’t hide it!
Paul Ryan, who unsuccessfully ran to become the vice president in 2012 with presidential candidate Mitt Romney, comes at a time when Cheney faces an onslaught of primary challenge threats. Cheney’s famous opposition to former President Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again agenda has made her a primary target for Trump and other MAGA candidates.
During the Conservative Political Action Conference last month, former President Trump singled Cheney out during his speech, in which he alluded to running again in 2024 and called for the House Republican Conference chairwoman to be removed from office.
Ryan, who later became House Speaker during the first half of the Trump presidency, made little impact on the national political landscape. He left office with an approval rating of just 12% according to some polls and previously said he was “embarrassed” by Trump.
After joining the board of Fox News, Ryan called on the network to drop positive coverage of the president. A report revealed how Ryan was “embarrassed about Trump and now he has the power to do something about it.”
In 2017, phonecall audio was leaked from the 2016 presidential campaign in which Ryan can be heard attacking then-candidate Trump.
“I’m not going to defend Donald Trump, not now, not in the future,” he said.
An anonymous Republican source, a consultant who works with House Republican candidates, said that the move by Cheney to bring Ryan on board was “unsurprising” and that donors who appear at the event should be “ashamed of themselves” for working against the interests of the party.
President Trump is the early leader among conservatives for the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nomination, according to The Washington Times/CPAC poll released Sunday. #TWTFrontPagehttps://t.co/5mEOdNR37j

Former President Donald Trump still has phenomenal support within the Republican Party and across the country, having won more votes than any sitting president in history, and with more than 50% of support among the party out of expected 2024 candidates.
