Congressional Republicans are revolting against RINOs, with Liz Cheney on track to be stripped of her leadership positions by months end, according to a new report.
Top allies of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy are reportedly planning to oust Rep. Liz Cheney, chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, by the end of the month because she refuses to put the party first while she continues to harp on former President Donald Trump.
“There is no way that Liz will be conference chair by month’s end,” a top McCarthy ally said on Monday. “When there is a vote, it won’t be a long conference; it will be fast. Everyone knows the outcome.”
“She is a big distraction,” the ally said. “I don’t see McCarthy saving her this time.”
“This is a broad range of lawmakers who have had it with her,” a second McCarthy ally said. “She’s a liability, and McCarthy’s as fed up as the rest of us that she is focused on the past rather than winning back the House.”
Cheney voted to impeach Donald Trump in February, and was promptly censured by the Wyoming GOP afterwards. Most recently she criticized Trump’s claims of election fraud, tweeting that “Anyone who claims it was [stolen] is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.”
Trump fired back in a statement: “Heartwarming to read new polls on big-shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the great State of Wyoming. She is so low that her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, won’t happen. They never liked her much, but I say she’ll never run in a Wyoming election again!”
Trump also took aim at another Republican who voted for his impeachment, Mitt Romney. “So nice to see RINO Mitt Romney booed off the stage at the Utah Republican State Convention. They are among the earliest to have figured this guy out, a stone-cold loser!”
