Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) set a second straight fundraising record last quarter, bringing in $1.88 million from April to June, Fox News reports.

Why it matters: The impressive haul, an increase from the record-setting $1.5 million Cheney brought in during the first three months of the year, came during the period in which she was ousted as House GOP conference chair for her criticism of former President Trump.

  • Cheney raised more than Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), who replaced her as the No. 3 House Republican in May and raised $1.5 million in Q3, according to Politico.
  • Cheney's fundraising totals this cycle have already passed the $3 million she brought in during the entire 2020 cycle. She told Fox on Tuesday that she has $2.85 million cash on hand as of the end of June, double the $1.43 million she had three months ago.

The big picture: Cheney was thrust into the center of an internal GOP feud after she sided against Trump over his baseless claims of voter fraud in the wake of the 2020 election.

  • She then became one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, which she has called "the most egregious violation of an oath of office of any president in our history."
  • Cheney has continued to be outspoken against Trump's influence in the GOP and has committed to running for re-election, but will undoubtedly face a well-funded primary challenge in Wyoming.

"The time is now to speak up," Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) implored his Republican colleagues in a video message posted Saturday, a day after fellow GOP Rep. Anthony Gonzalez announced his retirement.

Why it matters: Gonzalez was one of 10 House Republicans, including Kinzinger, who voted for impeachment. He said he had decided not to seek re-election against a Trump-backed primary challenger in 2022.

United Nations chief Antonio Guterres raised concerns in an interview with AP, published Monday, of another Cold War between the U.S. and China.

Why it matters: Guterres made the comments ahead of this week's UN General Assembly in New York. Guterres told AP the U.S.-U.K. deal to provide nuclear-powered submarines to Australia "is just one small piece of a more complex puzzle ... this completely dysfunctional relationship between China and the United States."

Human remains found in Teton County, Wyoming, are "consistent with the description of" missing 22-year-old Gabby Petito, FBI Denver official Charles Jones said at a news conference Sunday.

Details: The cause of death had yet to be determined, but Jones said: "Full forensic identification has not been completed to confirm 100% that we found Gabby, but her family has been notified of this discovery." Authorities said they're continuing the search for her fiancé, Brian Laundrie.
