Last week, the Republicans voted to remove Liz Cheney from her role as Conference Chair. This has been a long time coming.
She has since been replaced with Elise Stefanik...a MUCH better choice.
Cheney was the third-highest ranking Republican in the House behind Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise.
Honestly, I'm surprised that it took them this long to remove her from leadership after she has been so divisive.
Following the vote, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy made a public statement that is just stupid regarding Cheney's removal.
“I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election. That’s all over with. We are sitting here with the president today,” McCarthy said.

I can say with 100% confidence that Kevin McCarthy is absolutely wrong. People still do question the legitimacy of the presidential election, but the thing is right now the options are limited to what can actually be done about it and the people like Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell have had all of their court case is dismissed regarding the election because the Supreme Court wasn't even willing to entertain the idea that there could have been anything suspect about the process during this past November election.
As you read this right now in Maricopa County, Arizona there is a forensic audit being performed because people still question the legitimacy of the presidential election. They are still fighting to have audits performed in other locations as well. I can guarantee you that if the Democrats would stop preventing an audit from being performed in Georgia the roof would blow off the place. There was so much funny business in Georgia during the election is absolutely unreal.
So we know that Liz Cheney is not a supporter of president trump and that she wanted him out of office and she wasn't going to question the legitimacy of the election. I don't think that's the sole reason for the Republicans giving Cheney the boot.
In fact, do you know what she said after being removed from her position? “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”
#TheView So the QOP ousted/booted Liz Cheney from her House Leadership position. She says she will do anything within her power to make sure the former corrupt twice impeached disgraced President Donald Trump won't ever get back in our oval office. Kudos to you miss Cheney 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 pic.twitter.com/BSLNn7eL9j
