Rep. Liz Cheney On Verge Of Losing GOP House Leadership Role Over Vote To Impeach Trump
A few weeks ago, Wyoming Republican MP Liz Cheney voted with Democrats to indict President Trump.
Now she could pay dearly for that decision.
Other Republicans in the House are preparing to remove them from their leadership roles.

The Republicans of the House are preparing to oust Liz Cheney from the leadership
House Republicans are preparing for a referendum this week on the leadership role of Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney after supporting the hasty second impeachment of former President Donald Trump by the Democrats.
Cheney sparked a backlash from her own party three weeks ago when she announced her support for the Democrats’ plan to remove the outgoing president days before his term ends. The three-time Wyoming congresswoman claimed she wanted to indict the president, whose reluctant foreign policy approach, which she frequently disliked, was a “vote of conscience.”
The timing of her move on the eve of the vote hurt members of the caucus she allegedly runs, according to many members. They also cited the extreme rhetoric with which they pushed for Trump’s impeachment.
“The President of the United States called this mob, gathered the mob and lit the flame of this attack,” said Cheney in a statement on the January 6th statement of the Capitol riots, widely quoted by Democrats and the media. “All that followed was what he did.”
Republican voters are angry with Cheney’s decision, which they see as treason. Even in Wyoming, Cheney is facing a backlash.

Liz Cheney chose poorly.
Republican voters are fed up with being stabbed in the back by their own representatives.
