The Liz Cheney Show Has Just Begun : The NPR Politics Podcast This episode is available to everyone, though on some platforms there may be a short delay in availability between the version for subscribers (which is sponsor-free) and non-subscribers (which includes sponsor messages). Thank you for your patience!

Liz Cheney is the Republican party's most prominent Trump opponent. Now, she's lost out on the chance to return to Congress next year after a decisive primary loss to a MAGA-backed rival.

But she's not planning on going away quietly: she'll feature prominently in the fall's January 6th congressional hearings. And she says she might run for president.

This episode: congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell, congressional correspondent Deirdre Walsh, and senior political editor and correspondent Ron Elving.
