- On Monday, the Washington Examiner reported that the chairman of the Wyoming Republican Party floated the idea of secession to form a neo-confederacy consisting of Republican-voting states.
- “Wyoming GOP Chairman Frank Eathorne suggested the idea to War Room Pandemic podcast host and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon in a weekend interview focused on the decision by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the third-ranked Republican in the House, to vote in favor of impeaching Trump on a charge of incitement of insurrection related to the deadly riot that took place at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6,” reported Mike Brest.
- Eathorne told Bannon, a longtime adviser to Trump currently under indictment for an alleged border wall scam, “We need to focus on the fundamentals … Many of these Western states have the ability to be self-reliant, and we’re keeping eyes on Texas too and their consideration of possible secession.”
