Republican Establishment Keeps Anti-Trump Rep. Liz Cheney in Leadership Position

Washington, DC USA 1 12 2021 Liz Cheney blames Trump for riots

Trump-hating Wyoming Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney did not lose her leadership position after a vote of Congressional Republicans on Wednesday evening.

Cheney was one of only a handful of Republicans who supported the absurd second impeachment of President Donald Trump, and many Republicans were furious at her apostasy.

But Cheney is no mere GOP Congresswoman. She is a member of leadership. Cheney is the Chair of the House Republican Conference.

Condemnation built for Cheney’s very public attacks on President Trump until GOP leadership felt it necessary to call a vote to see if the membership wanted her removed from her position of leadership.

It looks like “no” is the answer to that question. In a 145 to 61 vote on Wednesday evening, the GOP caucus voted to retain Cheney in her leadership role.

Cheney gloated about her win: “We really had a terrific vote tonight, a terrific time this evening. Laying out what we’re going to do moving forward as well as making it clear that we’re not going to be divided and that we’re not going to be in a situation where people can pick off any member of leadership.”

Some were shocked by the weakness of the GOP:
