‘She should step down’: Cheney faces mounting GOP calls to resign as House conference chair

After repeatedly sounding off against former President Donald Trump, including leading the small group of House Republicans who voted to impeach him earlier this year, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is facing heightened pressure to resign from her party leadership post.

The latest calls for her ouster as House GOP conference chair come in the wake of her public assertion that Trump should not play any future role in the party, including a planned address at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference.

“I consider Liz a friend”

Cheney previously came under intraparty fire for voting to impeach Trump and blaming him for playing a role in inciting the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

In subsequent weeks, she survived a secret vote to determine whether she should retain the leadership position. She was, however, censured by multiple Republican groups in her home state.

Now, a pair of fellow GOP lawmakers are mounting a campaign to see her replaced as conference chair.

“I consider Liz a friend, and I stood on the floor with the conference defending her right to defend herself and taking what she described was a vote of conscience,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said, according to The Hill. “I believe that’s important, and so I did so. Yesterday, Liz forfeited a right to be chair of the Republican conference.”

He went on to argue that Cheney “cannot stand up and make a statement that is so completely out of step with the Republican conference and where the American people who support President Trump are” while still maintaining an influential leadership role within the GOP.

“If she has any sense of shame”

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) made similar remarks on Thursday.

“That was one of the most outrageous statements, but it’s consistent with at least four other statements she’s made in the last few weeks,” he said, as Breitbart reported. “As you know, some of us in this group led a charge to remove Ms. Cheney as the chairwoman leader of the Republican conference. I do not believe she is able to carry that out any further.”

Biggs went on to accuse Cheney of being “absolutely devoid of any kind of political reading of what’s going on” inside of her own party.

“My guess is there’s probably no room in the party for somebody who takes the positions that Ms. Cheney does and that makes the accusations that she does,” the Republican lawmaker added. “She should step down — if she has any sense of shame, she would step down.”

Throughout it all, however, Cheney has maintained a defiant attitude. Following the Wyoming Republican Party’s decision to censure her earlier this month, she said: “The oath that I took to the Constitution compelled me to vote for impeachment. And it doesn’t bend to partisanship, it doesn’t bend to political pressure. It’s the most important oath that we take.”

    1. Equalizer, you are 100 per cent correct. She needs to get the hell out of Congress and go home and play with her horses….

    2. Her father was a RINO just like she is!! His biggest claim to fame was shooting a ‘friend’ while on a hunting trip!

    3. I agree. She is a RINO just like her Dad. One of a few Republicans for the New World Order. She needs to go because she does not represent 98% of the GOP. She sure as heck does not represent me.

  1. Well, if she felt that way about our Constitution. She should read it first. You can’t impeach anybody that isn’t in office. She was tricked by our Nancy Pelosi, and did not know he would be out of office by the time it was taken to the Senate. But, he was due to go out of office in a week, why would she do that.

    1. Samuel…Nancy Pelosi is garbage pure and simple. Compare a picture of Nancy Pelosi and a picture of “Cruella DeVil” from the old kids’ movie “101 Dalmations” cannibal…. “Cruella DeVil, Cruella DeVil, if someone will hurt you, she surely will, Cruella Cruella DeVil….”

    2. If she was so easily tricked by Pelosi then she should resign. She is not a true Republican. We support each other.
      They used her and she fell for it..easy mark!

  3. Even Romney admitted that Trump would easily be nominated in 2024 as no one, including Cheney & Haley have any numbers at all to get nominated. Even McConnell said if Trump were nominated that he would support him. Cheney & her like can’t wish themselves into power & should never have gone down this path against Trump. Any Republican who bought into the fake impeachment thing, just a continuation of the last four years was just wrong headed. Stand up to Pelosi & her trick riot that cost us those hearings, a chance to at least be on record for a reconsideration of the electoral votes. Riding the fence won’t work either, you’ll just get a fence post up your bottom.

    1. I agree with most all of your comment with the exception of McConnell also being a two faced “”FRIEND”” a FAIR WEATHER POLITICIAN ! He was all for the impeachment to happen , (( WHY )) ??? No he is back to singing a different tune ? Yes , the woman is representing the WRONG PARTY !!! or perhaps go back to CONSTITUTION SCHOOL ? OH NO , Trump caused the INSURECTION !!! l o l They have no clue what a REAL INSURECTION WOULD LOOK LIKE !!!

  4. she isn’t representing america.. she is representing her families business “haliburton” which manufctures military supplies and equipt. so if biden starts a war,,,, YUP …… you guessed it they profit from it.

  5. Someone needs to ask her where in the constitution it says without any criminal proof, only hate for an individual is grounds for impeachment? She has proven to be one of those two facedsplit tongue politicians that are against the people who she is supposed to be working for!

  6. Seems to me Liz Cheney doesn’t understand the U. S. Constitution President Trump was a private citizen February 8th, 2020. The Constitution states you cannot impeach a private citizen. Tin Lizzie has to go.

  7. RINOS does not belong to Republican Party. She is so against her own party and should move to Demo. She does not understand Constitution at all. She is traitor, not morally suit for Republican Party. She should be expelled from the party, poison mushroom.

  8. Cheney needs to go!! Take the rest of The Senate and Congress with your sorry A!! WE THE PEOPLE and Patriots ONLY!!

  9. The important thing is that she represents her constituents and based on what has been done to her in Wyoming, she failed miserably!
    Her removal from a leadership role is appropriate and needed!

  10. As with the RINOs in DC she thought she had support thats how out of touch they are. She is done McConnell is done Romney is done and so on. McConnell is trying to save his own butt TOO LATE. These do nothing but talk Repubs are finished and not a minute too soon. Trump has been the best pres. in modern times. Thats what we want. DRAIN THE SWAMP!!!

  11. ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS and this is what a Voter perceives:
    TRUMP actions to voters:
    Promises made! Promises kept!
    CHENEY actions to voters:
    Me First, America last!

    1. Spot on. Good riddance! How can you vote to impeach when there were no witnesses or evidence presented? Cheney doesn’t belong in the party much less in the house.

  12. I think ALL seven Republicans that voted against Trump should resign! They are not representing the Republicans that vote & should never be re-elected to the party!She is just like the Dems.. Pelosi& ect is .. in sane… they are not the rulers of the American people ….They are supposed to represent…if they can’t do that resign !

  13. If Liz can’t bring herself to support the choice of her own party for political office she has disqualified herself from leading her party in any capacity! She can become and independent or a democrat, her choice, but she does not belong in the republican party!

  14. After reading the posts here on the page I have come to the conclusion that there are a lot of VERY IGNORANT PEOPLE in the Republican Party. As a registered INDEPENDENT VOTER I would like to suggest that all of the MORONS on this page FIRST LEARN TO READ. NEXT READ THE CONSTITUTION THAT YOU ALL SO SORROWFULLY DON’T GET BECAUSE YOU ALL HAVEN’T YET LEARNED TO READ. And furthermore JUST BECAUSE THE THIEVING TRAITORS IN CONGRESS YOU ALL CALL REPUBLICANS, DIDN’T DO THEIR JOBS BY RESPECTING THEIR OATHS INSTEAD OF PARTY LINES AND VOTING TO CENSUR AND REMOVE THE CRIMINAL AND TRAITOR KNOWN AS DUMB DONALD, DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY ARE CORRECT IN NOT CENSURING HIM. IT JUST SHOWS THAT THEY ARE COWARDS, MOST PROBABLY LIKE MANY OF THE IDIOTS ON THIS PAGE. I revel in the fact that THE REPUBLICAN PARTY is in fact imploding all because of the sheer IGNORANCE and STUPIDITY OF THE VERY TRAITORS THAT ARE CONSTANTLY WANT TO RUIN OUR DEMOCRACY. IT IS FUN WATCHING THE Republican Party DESTROY ITSELF ON A DAILY BASIS.

      1. Mark I agree with you totally,george definitely NOT the sharpest knife in any drawer, lol, and no liz cheney DOES NOT have the right to vote her conscious,she was voted into office to vote her constituents conscious,TO BE THEIR VOICE in Washington and in the house!!!!

    1. Do not bother with this rant. First he insults the readers for doing what he does. He uses smarmy and covert attacks on them. Then he uses no punctuation, mixes caps and his post is illogical at best.

  15. I don’t understand most of the headlines in these articles anymore! This one says SHOCK…resignation announcement ! and makes it sound like she has resigned…or is planning to resign. But then you read the article and all it says is there are some who think she ought to resign…not that she has , or is in the process of it! Just STUPID!!! Call if for what it is.. it’s just a call for her to resign. That’s all!

  16. My comment is in response to George Grover and his comment that America is a democracy which is not what our Founding Fathers gave us, it is a REPUBLIC and as such the rights of all are protected whereas in a demonRatic form of government we are subject to mob rule which is what we are seeing happening all across America.

  17. Claims to have voted her conscience when she should have voted the voice of of her district. What did they want? Didn’t matter. Did she run for office based on her conscience?

  18. Liz Cheney MUST GO! President Trump is our most powerful voice who will, because he has already proven, fight for us the American people. The Republican Party must unite in strength to fight the radical left wing Biden administration. Trump is not beholding to any special interest groups nor does he need politics to get rich. We must unite in strength. Liz Chaney is a pathetic traitor to our country. God bless America! Stand strong!

  19. OMG. George, George, George. Its one thing to be thought a stupid S.O.B., but quite another to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Your so disillusioned that your independent, wait, registered independent. You showed that you and your communist party don’t know the Republicans, the constitution, the Bill of Rights. If you noticed all who have commented know you have the right to spew your garbage because we believe in the 1st amend. We just feel a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

  20. Well, Georgie, you must have studied a constitution from a different nation, OR your just another liberal troll who lost his way home to the commie website. As for “kizzie lizzie”, she’s just being a political grandstander, like her daddy was. I wouldn’t go “hunting” with her , either.

  21. Poor George, he “ thinks” he is relevant, but is just another leftist nut job! The demonrat party should implode from all the low, underhanded, illegal crap they have done! The GOP will survive and beat the Dems ! He is wishing we would implode, but—- he rubbed the wrong genie! Sorry george😁
