More Than 1/2 of House Republicans Would Oust Cheney for Impeachment Vote

'She judged the 'evidence' before it was presented and refused to listen to the arguments made...'

More than half of the House Republican conference supports the ouster of GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., from her leadership position in the wake of her vote to impeach President Donald Trump, according to a senior GOP aide.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., and Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-Mont., have led the effort to remove Cheney for betraying Trump and voting alongside Democrats last week.

They have circulated a petition to force a special conference meeting where Republicans would call on Cheney to resign.

As of right now, 115 Republican members have agreed to vote against Cheney during the conference meeting, according to The Hill.

“Rep. Cheney did not consult with the rest of our conference before supporting impeachment,” Rosendale tweeted last week. “She failed to abide by the spirit of the Conference rules & is ignoring the preferences of Republican voters. I’m calling on her to step down as Conference Chair.”

Cheney is one of 10 House Republicans who voted against Trump last week, but she has insisted that she is “not going anywhere.”

Her own state, however, seems to think otherwise.

Wyoming Republicans in one county voted unanimously to censure Cheney, arguing that she “violated the trust of her voters, failed to faithfully represent a very large majority of motivated Wyoming voters, and neglected her duty to represent the party and the will of the people who elected her to represent them.”

The Wyoming GOP has also condemned Cheney, demanding that she “explain” her vote at its next meeting.

“By announcing her decision to vote for impeachment Representative Cheney denied President Trump due process; she judged the ‘evidence’ before it was presented and refused to listen to the arguments made,” the party said in a statement last week.

An online petition to recall Cheney from the House also has more than 33,000 signatures as of this week.
