Congresswoman Liz Cheney said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “not in control of her caucus.”

Cheney made the comment in a recent interview, and suggested Pelosi has lost control in the first 100 days of the new Congress, “because the far-left radicals” have really set the agenda.

In outlining how House Democrats have shifted further Left, Cheney cited their “embrace of socialism,” and refusal to bring the “born alive protection act to the floor” among other factors. She also called on people to speak out against socialism.

“When our colleagues and our political opponents are advocating socialism, it’s really incumbent upon all of us who recognize what that means to explain to people, said Cheney “There’s no way that the government can do all of these things that they say government should do without stripping power from the people.”

Cheney also warned that totalitarianism follows socialism very quickly, and would mean the loss of things like freedom of religion, speech, and press.
