From USA TODAY:
On Wednesday, House Republicans voted to strip Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) of her leadership role for speaking the truth about The Former Guy.
As chair of the GOP House Conference, the three-term Wyoming congresswoman had been the third most powerful Republican member of the House. Her ouster leaves a vacancy GOP officials expect to fill in the coming weeks.
Cheney is a staunch conservative from a red state and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney. But her willingness to push back against Trump’s “big lie” about widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election led to a break with other House Republicans, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., who remain loyal to the former president and his baseless claims of a stolen election.
