Schumer and Sanders speak out for Liz Cheney after she’s ousted from GOP leadership role

Democrat Senators Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders both lamented Republican Rep. Liz Cheney losing her leadership role as conference chair this morning.

Schumer tweeted:

The House GOP just ousted Rep. Liz Cheney from leadership

Her crime? Telling the truth that Joe Biden is the President

The GOP continues to perpetuate and act upon the big lie that the election was stolen

Democrats will move forward on the #ForThePeopleAct for our democracy

Sanders wrote “Rep. Liz Cheney and I disagree on nearly every major issue. But she deserves credit for saying, “I will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy.”
