McCarthy won’t rule out booting Cheney from Key Committee after she takes Pelosi’s side on Jan 6th commission

GOP House Minority Leader said he won’t rule out booting Rep. Liz Cheney from the  Armed Services Committee after she took Pelosi’s side on the Jan 6th commission.

Wednesday, GOP Cheney defended House Speaker’s decision to boot Reps. Jordan and Banks from the Jan. 6th committee.

“She rejected 2,” Cheney said. “One who may be a material witness to events that lead to that day… the other who disqualified himself by his comments over the last 24 hours demonstrating he’s not taking this seriously”

Rep. Cheney then ripped McCarthy, saying “The rhetoric we have heard from the minority leader is disingenuous… at every opportunity, the minority leader has attempted to prevent the American people from understanding what happened.”

“Any person who would be third in line to the presidency must demonstrate a commitment to the constitution and a commitment to the rule of law, and Minority Leader McCarthy has not done that,” she also said.

Pelosi is now reportedly considering adding anti-Trump Republican Adam Kinzinger to the January 6th committee. Kinzinger currently serves on the Energy and Commerce Committee and the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Asked by reporters whether he would consider ousting Cheney and Kinzinger from their committees, McCarthy said the party’s “main focus” is on combating rising inflation, securing the border and addressing the spike in violent crime in U.S. cities.

He then said “I think it’s a conference decision. The conference will look at it.”

Rep. Liz Cheney has already been booted from the powerful Conference Chair GOP leadership role.

In her place now is Trump supporter and rising star of the party Rep. Elise Stefanik.
