ORIGINAL POST

One of President Trump's loudest and earliest critics after the report about his cancelled peace talks with Taliban surfaced was Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney. The Taliban should be allowed nowhere near Camp David, she insisted, particularly the same week as September 11.

A few months earlier the congresswoman questioned Trump's decision not to respond to Iran's downing of an unmanned U.S. drone, calling it a "serious mistake."

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, long a critic of the U.S.'s involvement in wars, told Cheney to cut it out with all her "NeverTrump warmongering."

On Wednesday, Paul shared an opinion piece from two of Cheney's fellow Wyoming Republicans who "respectfully but strongly disagree" with her foreign policy.

"We urge Cheney to stop publicly criticizing our Republican commander-in-chief and seemingly pushing the U.S. toward yet another endless war in the Middle East," the legislators, State Reps. Jared Olsen and Tyler Lindholm, wrote. 

Cheney has not completely distanced herself from the president. This week she blasted Democrats for their obsession over impeachment.

"They have been determined to impeach this president at all costs since he was elected regardless of the Constitution," she said Tuesday on Capitol Hill. "They are fundamentally failing to abide by and live up to their constitutional responsibilities; turning impeachment into an absolutely political endeavor."
