According to the NY Post “the vote to determine House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney’s fate in leadership is scheduled for Wednesday morning — after months of the No. 3 GOP member being at war with her own party.”
Per the report:
The meeting is slated to kick off at 9 a.m., the morning after House lawmakers arrive back to Washington after their two-week recess.
The vote will mark the second time Cheney has faced an attempt to remove her from her leadership role this year. She overwhelmingly prevailed in a vote in February after a group of conservatives attempted to oust her shortly after her announcement that she would vote in favor of impeaching Trump for “incitement” of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
According to Rep. Jim Jordan, Republicans have the votes to oust Cheney from her leadership role.
While appearing on Fox News Thursday, Jordan said that “the votes are there” to remove Cheney as House Republican Conference chair.
“She definitely needs to go,” Jordan said calling the GOP a “pro-America, populist party rooted in conservative principle with Donald Trump as our leader.”
“You can’t have a Republican conference chair reciting Democrat talking points,” Jordan said about Cheney. “You can’t have a Republican conference chair taking a position that 90 percent of the party disagrees with, and you can’t have a Republican party chair consistently speaking out against the individual who 74 million Americans voted for.”
