Some Republicans in the House are calling for their Conference Chair, Liz Cheney to be removed from House leadership for announcing plans to vote to impeach Donald Trump.
Ohio Congressman Rep. Jim Jordan told reporters that there needs to be a second vote on Cheney’s future as a member of House Republican leadership.
“The conference ought to vote on that,” Jordan said. “I think she’s wrong.”
Rep. Matt Rosendale said in a statement on Tuesday: “When Representative Cheney came out for impeachment today, she failed to consult with the Conference, failed to abide by the spirit of the rules of the Republican Conference, and ignored the preferences of Republican voters. She is weakening our conference at a key moment for personal political gain and is unfit to lead. She must step down as Conference Chair.”
Andy Biggs says Cheney should step down since she no longer represents “the Republican ideals”.
On Tuesday Cheney announced she will vote to impeach Donald Trump.
“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President,” Cheney said. “The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.”
