The same or similar stuff has/is happening to a lot of "good" republicans, or conservatives.

If you're not willing to blatantly lie, and support those who you know are lying, there's no place for you in Trump's Republican Party and McConnell and McCarthy have surrendered the Party to Trump.
Lie about Covid, kill hundreds of thousands of Americans.
Lie about the election and try to overthrow the Constitution.
There's nothing Trump won't lie about, and nothing this Republican Party won't go along with because Trump's idiot followers will primary them if they oppose him.

Jeff, it is exactly this willingness to embrace lying as a chief political strategy that shows how bankrupt many in the GOP leadership have become. I don't understand it. There is no honor in it, and any temporary advantage gained by lying surely rests on a foundation of sand. I think these folks have simply lost all sense of right and wrong, and they got this directly from Trump, who as we know, hasn't a moral bone in his body.

To a certain class of people right and wrong have to take a backseat to winning, and since the cult of personality behind Trump is big enough to control Republican primaries these craven opportunists are willing to go along. They don't give a damn about the damage to the Country, and there's no better illustration than looking at what McConnell and McCarthy said immediately after the insurrection and comparing it to what they say now.

I also read somewhere that Heritage Foundation ranks Cheney much higher than Stefanik.


https://www.usatoday.com/story...z-cheney/4958039001/

Stefanik ranks as one of the most bipartisan and didn't always vocally support Trump
Despite her vocal support for Trump, Stefanik consistently ranks as one of the most bipartisan lawmakers, is more moderate when it comes to legislation, and wasn't always as outspoken in her support for the 45th president.

For the 116th Congress, which ran from 2019 to 2020, according to the Bipartisan Index from the nonpartisan public policy think tank The Lugar Center, Stefanik was ranked as the 13th most bipartisan member of Congress.

The year prior, she landed at number 14.

Policy-wise, Stefanik is more moderate than some of her GOP House colleagues and voted with Trump less than Cheney did.

According to FiveThirtyEight, Cheney voted with Trump 92.9% of the time, while Stefanik voted with him 77.7% of the time.

For example, Stefanik opposed Trump's 2017 tax cut and has supported giving legal status to undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.

In 2016, she kept her distance from then-candidate Trump, saying she endorsed the Republican "party's nominee" without mentioning Trump's name.

She went from not attending the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland to speaking at the party's 2020 virtual convention.

During her speech this past summer, she railed against Democrats in her support for Trump, saying the "American people were not swayed by these partisan attacks. Our support for President Trump is stronger than ever before."
