Rep. Liz Cheney ousted from her position as third-highest ranking Republican in House leadership

Representative Liz Cheney– a Wyoming Republican Congressman– was ousted from her position of Republican leadership in the House of Representatives as the GOP Conference Chair, regarding her vocal opposition to the evolving agenda and outlook of the party. 

In a clear vote, an estimated three quarters of lawmakers present voted to remove Cheney. Despite a inquired motion to proceed with a recorded vote, Congressman Ken Buck (R, CO) noted that “it was ruled out of order because the time had lapsed to ask for a recorded vote.” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL)– a vocal supporter of Cheney’s– expressed frustration with the proceedings, saying that “Liz has committed the only sin of being consistent and telling the truth. The truth is that the election was not stolen.”

Additionally, Congressman Elise Stefanik (R-NY)– the only lawmaker seeking to replace Cheney– previously noted that Cheney was a symptom of the “Media and Socialist Democrats” attempts to “divide us.” Meanwhile, Cheney herself commented on her removal, saying that she would, from now on, be doing “everything” to fight so that former-President Trump “never gets anywhere near the oval office.”
