Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Thursday became the highest-ranking House Republican to condemn the QAnon conspiracy theory, calling it "dangerous lunacy that should have no place in American politics," per Politico's Melanie Zanona.
Driving the news: President Trump said on Wednesday that while he does not know much about QAnon, he understands its supporters "like me very much" and that they "love America."
Why it matters: Few high-ranking Republicans have spoken out against the baseless conspiracy theory.
- QAnon falsely alleges that a powerful cabal of sex traffickers within the "deep state" is engaged in a global fight to take down Trump.
