Liz Cheney Ousted From Republican Leadership Role


by Henry Rodgers, The Daily Caller:

Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney was removed from her leadership position by a voice vote Wednesday.

Behind closed doors, Republicans voted Cheney out as the third-ranking House Republican.

“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney told reporters after she was removed.


“The party is in a place that we’ve got to bring it back from,” Cheney added. “We cannot be dragged backward by the very dangerous lies of a former president.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy sent a letter on Monday to Republicans in Congress, saying there will be a vote to replace Cheney, which occurred Tuesday morning. (RELATED: ‘Need To Make A Change’: GOP Leader McCarthy Sends Letter To Republicans Saying There Will Be Vote To Replace Cheney)

“Having heard from so many of you in recent days, it’s clear that we need to make a change. As such, you should anticipate a vote on recalling the Conference Chair this Wednesday,” McCarthy wrote in the letter.

Cheney, who is up for reelection in 2022, has continued to face criticism for voting in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump. The Wyoming Republican Party censured her in February over her impeachment vote. (RELATED: Trump Supports Rep. Elise Stefanik To Replace Liz Cheney As House GOP Conference Chair)
