Republicans have decided during a vote to remove Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) as the House conference chair after her continued attacks against President Trump and opposition to investigating voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election.
Cheney’s expulsion from her spot was approved during a vote on Wednesday. This came after the Wyoming Republican got fierce pushback from conservatives for attacking President Trump over his concerns about possible election fraud and voting with Democrats to impeach him earlier this year.
Despite her removal from the House Republican leadership, Cheney still wants to run for reelection. Meanwhile, her replacement for the House chair has not been named, although Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) is anticipated to be that replacement.
After the Republican vote to remove Cheney from her role, President Trump said the Congresswoman was a “bitter, terrible human.” In another statement, he said she is bad for the GOP.
President Trump continued his assault, calling Cheney a talking point for Democrats and a warmonger whose family forced America into a “never ending disaster,” which he said was the “worst decision in our nation’s history.”
