WATCH: Pelosi praises Liz Cheney amid calls for her to lose her leadership role, refers to her “courage” and “patriotism”

Amid calls from Trump supporters for her removal from her GOP leadership role, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended Rep. Liz Cheney.

“I don’t get involved with what goes on in the Republican conference in the House of Representatives,” Pelosi said.

“I do commend Liz Cheney for her courage, for her patriotism, and I wish her well. Perhaps this challenge will make her stronger. I don’t know. That’s up to their caucus,” she added.
