RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) vacated her congressional seat on Tuesday after becoming a wealthy woman during her six years of serving Wyoming. On January 3, Cheney departed Congress as a defeated 56-year-old never Trumper who lost the Republican primary by nearly 40 points in August.
There will be no empty pockets for Cheney as she leaves Congress. She has become very wealthy during her six years in Congress. Cheney’s net worth increased from an estimated $7 million when she took office in 2017 to possibly over $44 million in 2020, according to Breitbart News. In Congress, Cheney’s net worth could have skyrocketed up to 600 percent based on her latest financial disclosure form.
On her 2020 Personal Financial Disclosure form, Cheney reported a net worth between $10,422,023 and $44,140,000, based on assets valued between $10,432,024 and $44,155,000. There were no earned incomes, gifts, or transactions reported by her.
Her disclosure included three positions, including a trustee position at the University of Wyoming, membership in a holding company, and what appears to be an office in her family’s trust.
Cheney’s wealth and social status are enhanced by her husband, Philip Perry, who is a partner at the law firm Latham & Watkins in Washington, DC. Between $1,000,001 and $5,000,000 of equity ownership has been maintained in the firm by Perry since Cheney joined Congress in 2017.
It is not expected that Cheney or her family will leave Washington, DC, and return to Wyoming after her forced resignation from Congress. It is technically true that she represented Wyoming for six years. However, her absence from the state during the GOP primary became a point of contention for many Cowboy State voters. Rather than campaigning in Wyoming, Cheney stayed in the Washington region and participated in the January 6 Committee.
As a result of Cheney’s participation on the committee, her political fate in Wyoming seemed sealed. 89 percent of the public viewed the committee as a partisan witch hunt. In addition, the committee’s final report did not produce any legally binding results.
Cheney has not clearly stated what her future plans are as a new political cycle begins Tuesday. She says she is focused on preventing Trump’s reelection in 2024. In the absence of the vice chair pulpit or the January 6 Committee, however, it is unclear exactly how she will accomplish that.
In 2024, she has even floated the idea of running for president:
However, critics doubt she will garner enough Democratic or Republican votes.
Liz Cheney’s politics to serve her own pocket has reached a level of disgrace no one could have imagined. In just six years as a Congresswoman, Cheney pocketed an unreal amount of unearned wealth, with her net worth increasing from an estimated $7 million to possibly over $44 million when she vacated her congressional seat on Tuesday. As a RINO, Cheney went against her own party leaving no question that she served her own interests before all else. Her accumulation of such wealth while in office serves as an example many will find hard to forgive or forget.
