WASHINGTON —Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney has officially been ousted as the third highest-ranking House Republican. She was removed by a voice vote.
According to a person in the room, Cheney told the GOP conference the nation needs a Republican Party “based on truth” to shape the future. She said they cannot let former President Trump “drag us backward and make us complicit in his efforts to unravel our democracy.” Cheney added his path of lies will be the Party’s “destruction.”
Cheney has been in hot water with her own party after she claimed the election was not stolen, despite what Trump and his allies have said. She was also one of ten House Republicans to vote in favor of impeaching Trump for inciting the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
