Republican lawmakers are calling on Representative Liz Cheney, the number three House Republican, to resign from her role as Republican Conference Chair after she voted to impeach President Trump.
Three GOP lawmakers — Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio, Matt Rosendale of Montana, and Andy Biggs of Arizona — have all called on Cheney to step down.
Jordan, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said he’s pressing House Republicans to oust her from her leadership role.
On Wednesday night Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) joined the choir demanding Liz Cheney step down as GOP Conference Chair in the US House of Representatives.
Said Rep. Gaetz, “Sean, I totally agree with you. If we’re going to fight back it cannot be with Liz Cheney as the Republican Conference Chair. I can report to you that there is growing momentum in the House Republican Conference to remove her. 197 Republicans voted against this impeachment. Only 10 voted for it. One of those ten cannot be our leader. it is untenable, unsustainable and we need to make a leadership change.”
