McCarthy Opposes Removal of Cheney Over Impeachment Vote

House Minority Leader backs her continued role in leadership...

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the Republican Caucus should not eject turncoat Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who voted to impeach President Donald Trump, from the party’s leadership roles, Politico reported on Thursday.

Cheney and nine other Republicans joined the Democrat caucus in perpetuating the hoax that Trump incited violence at the Capitol.

“There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” Cheney wrote in the statement.

The Capitol Hill Insurrection Hoax and the second Impeachment Hoax have revealed more NeverTrumpers in the Republican Party.

As GOP Conference Chairwoman, Cheney holds the third-highest ranking position among House Republicans, behind McCarthy and Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., the Minority Whip.

Yet her beliefs and actions lie entirely outside what is now the party’s mainstream, as polls—even those conducted by left-wing pollsters—show fewer than 10 percent of Republicans supporting impeachment.

The House Freedom Caucus began circulating a petition forcing “Congresswoman Liz Cheney to resign her position as Chair of the Republican Conference.”

If 42 House Republicans sign the petition, then the conference will gather to vote on a resolution that tells Cheney to resign.

“The conference ought to vote on that,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Wednesday. “We ought to have a second vote,” he said in reference to Cheney’s election to the position in November.

The resolution says that Cheney’s vote “does not reflect that of the majority of the Republican Conference and has brought the Conference into disrepute and produced discord.”

Cheney is standing her ground.

“I’m not going anywhere. This is a vote of conscience,” she said. “It’s one where there are different views in our conference. But our nation is facing an unprecedented, since the civil war, constitutional crisis.”

She did not explain the nature of the Constitutional crisis.

The Wyoming Republican Party said in a statement released yesterday that the outcry from members against Cheney’s actions is unprecedented.

“There has not been a time during our tenure when we have seen this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans, with the anger and frustration being palpable in the comments we have received,” the statement said. “Our telephone has not stopped ringing, our email is filling up, and our website has seen more traffic than at any previous time. The consensus is clear that those who are reaching out to the Party vehemently disagree with Representative Cheney’s decision and actions.”
