Republicans will vote Wednesday to decide whether to exclude Liz Cheney, who favors harsh criticism of Donald Trump from his hierarchy.
“After listening to many of you over the last few days, it is clear that we need change. Because of this, you can expect a vote to remove “Liz Cheney, the party’s number three in the lower house,” this Wednesday in Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy’s letter to her parliamentary group.
The daughter of former US Vice President Dick Cheney, the latter is responsible, as number three or “conference chair”, for taking the message of Republicans to the interior and the electorate. This role is more important as the “midterm” parliamentary elections of 2022 approach, and the party hopes to win a majority in Congress.
But Donald Trump is very popular with Republican voters, and many lawmakers are sure he won’t be able to return to the House and Senate without his support. Real estate Mogul put all his weight against Liz Cheney, “a warlike fool who has nothing to do in the hierarchy.”
To replace him, he and Kevin McCarthy, 36, support Ellis Stefanik, who arrived in Congress six years ago, holding rather liberal positions and who has made a clear shift to support the former Republican president, Including unfounded allegations of electoral fraud.
Elected from Wyoming, Liz Cheney was among ten House Republicans among more than 10 Republicans to vote to incite extremism during her attack on Congress on January 6. The former US president was then acquitted by the Senate. After this vote, she survived the first motion of no-confidence motion in February. But since then, his criticism of Republican billionaires has not stopped and the patience of Republican leaders has waned.
Kevin McCarthy says in his letter, “Every day spent remembering the past has fewer days to grope the future.” “The Republican Party won’t get the extra vote to exclude Liz Cheney from the hierarchy, but it will take a good number of us”, Senator Mitt Romney tweeted on Monday, another great pet pee of Donald Trump.
