According to the WASHINGTON, DC If anyone had any uncertainty that Donald Trump pauses in firm control of the Republican Party, look no further than the buzz over what’s about to happen to Rep. Having said that Liz Cheney, the GOP’s 3rd ranking leader in the House of Representatives.
“Yes, definitely, that’ll be something we’ll be taking care of in our conference,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tells CBN News. “Myself along with most of the House Freedom Caucus and others had voted to remove her earlier this year, but the vote didn’t pass, and she remained our chairwoman. However, now you can see the rest of the conference is ready to make the move.”
Cheney’s not going down without a fight. In a Washington Post op-ed Wednesday, she writes, “The Republican Party is at a turning point, and Republicans must decide whether we are going to choose truth and fidelity to the Constitution.
We must be brave enough to defend the basic principles that underpin and protect our freedom and our democratic process. I am committed to doing that, no matter what the short-term political consequences might be.” And then Former Trump Senior Advisor Stephen Miller tells CBN News that Cheney is out of step with the Republican base he told.
“I can tell you it is outrageous the way that Liz Cheney continues to attack not only our president, our members, our voters, our principles, our values,”. Fellow Republicans are booing others, who took stands upon him, like Mitt Romney.
The Trump influence goes beyond Liz Cheney. In U.S House races, Trump recently backed Susan Wright in Texas. She got in first in the primary. The anti-Trump competitor finished last. “If there’s a Republican civil war, then Donald Trump keeps winning round after round,” remarks Rick Klein, ABC News Political Director.
“Trump is as strong as he has been in some time, three months or so after leaving office. He is a major force inside the Republican Party and you see that play out at state, local, and national levels almost every day.”
