House GOP Ousts Liz Cheney From No. 3 Position


What Happened:

  • On Wednesday, House Republicans voted to remove Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney from her position as the House GOP’s number 3 leader. Liz Cheney is the daughter of former Vice-President Dick Cheney.

  • Cheney has been a vocal critic of former President Trump citing his unproven claims of election fraud and his perceived involvement in inciting the Capitol Riot on Jan. 6.

  • The demotion shows that challenging Trump can be a career-altering move in the current GOP.

  • Said Cheney in a speech before the vote, “If you want leaders who will enable and spread his [Trump’s] destructive lies, I’m not your person…You have plenty of others to choose from. That will be their legacy.”

  • The vote to replace Cheney will occur on Friday.
