(RepublicanNews.org) – The majority of Democrats are “Never-Trumpers,” meaning no matter what, they’ll never support Donald Trump. The same is true for some in the former president’s party, the Grand Ole Party (GOP), or Republicans. A storm is brewing for people who despise Trump and his policies, and a blow is coming their way.
Several Republican lawmakers attempted to impeach Trump during his time in the White House. Well, now, that decision is coming back to bite them as billionaire Peter Theil is funding campaigns against them.

Among the GOP lawmakers and Never-Trumpers is Liz Cheney (R-WY). The tech billionaire, who’s also a co-founder of PayPal and creator of the controversial cryptocurrency miner Palantir, has donated millions to Republican campaigns against them. Harriet Hageman, running against Cheney in the Wyoming state primary, saw Thiel benefit her campaign by $5,800 in her third-quarter fundraiser, the largest amount donors can give candidates.
Of course, Hageman caught Trump’s endorsement quickly. In fact, it was before she even officially began her bid for the position in Congress. Now, she’s banking off of his endorsement as Trump donors send her money.
Thiel, an avid supporter of the former President, is a mega-donor for Republican campaigns and, so it’s not surprising that he would back candidates to unseat GOP Congress members who tried to remove Trump from office.
