Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) predicted in a tweet Saturday that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) would be ousted from her GOP leadership position by the end of the month after a promise to campaign on impeaching former President Donald Trump “every day of the week.”
House GOP leadership is considering removing Cheney from leadership, according to Axios. She is currently the third-ranking Republican in the House.
Cheney and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy have openly feuded over support for Trump, and others are now joining in on the criticism.
House Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chair Jim Banks (IN) said Cheney’s contact criticism “is an unwelcome distraction,” and Minority Whip Steve Scalise (LA) said Trump still “has a lot to offer” to the GOP.
It seems that Cheney is doing more to disunify the party than the man she is criticizing, and there may be justification for her to be ousted from leadership. She has also been wildly unpopular in her own district and was censured there for her criticism of Trump.
