Liz Cheney, who is an ardent Trump hater is currently the third most powerful Republican in the House, but if members get their way, she will lose the position she was voted for right away. Cheney said yesterday that she planned to vote for impeachment. She is ignoring the 75 million people who voted for President Trump.
On Tuesday night, Reps Andy Biggs and Matt Rosendale called for her resignation effective immediately:
Rep. Rosendale Called For Rep. Cheney To Step Down As Republican Conference Chair, having released the following statement:
When Representative Cheney came out for impeachment today, she failed to consult with the Conference, failed to abide by the spirit of the rules of the Republican Conference, and ignored the preferences of Republican voters. She is weakening our conference at a key moment for personal political gain and is unfit to lead. She must step down as Conference Chair.
Rep. Andy Biggs said:
“She should resign her position as a conference chair and should not be serving this conference. That’s it,” Biggs told the Washington Examiner.
This is not the first time the Republicans have asked her to resign. Back in July, Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan accused Cheney, who is a marginal Republican at best was undermining the Trump agenda:
Rep. Matt Gaetz, a rising star in the Republican Party and close ally to President Trump, publicly accused Rep. Liz Cheney of undermining the president and called on her to resign or be removed from her position in GOP House leadership.
“Liz Cheney has worked behind the scenes (and now in public) against @realDonaldTrump and his agenda,” the Florida congressman tweeted on Tuesday.
“House Republicans deserve better as our Conference Chair. Liz Cheney should step down or be removed #MAGA,” he continued, referencing the president’s Make America Great Again slogan.
“I don’t think she should be the chair of the Republican conference anymore.”
“The reality is she’s not representing the conference; she’s not representing the Republican ideals.”
“She’s out there advocating for others to join her in impeachment — that is wrong, and I think she should resign. “
I firmly believe Liz Cheney and Joy Behar were separated at birth.
