Liz Cheney is striking a nerve. Over and over. Purposefully and with force. Donald Trump sends an email saying the election was stolen, and Cheney -- the No. 3 House Republican -- tweets "the 2020 presidential election was not stolen."

Donald Trump sends an email saying the election was stolen, and Cheney -- the No. 3 House Republican -- tweets right back at him, minutes later, that "the 2020 presidential election was not stolen. "

So what's going on with Cheney, the conservative Republican who voted with Trump more than 90% of the time?

But one thing is clear: Cheney has no comfortable perch in a House GOP conference in which more than half subscribe to the Big Lie that President Joe Biden was not duly elected.

But for Cheney -- who has been very critical of Biden -- the party must first move beyond its fealty to Trump on all fronts.

Political strategists being what they are, there's already some whispering about Cheney's potential national future: Maybe, just maybe, if Trump decides not to run for president, she might.
