He has repeatedly denied false statements about the presidential election
k— Republicans in the House of Representatives stripped Representative Liz Cheney of leadership on Wednesday and removed former President Donald Trump’s tract detractors, who repeatedly denied his false statements about the presidential election.
Republican lawmakers held a closed-door meeting for more than 20 minutes and voted on the spot to place Cheney in third place in the House of Commons. This was an annoying turn for the fast-paced campaign within the party.
The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, Cheney, has always been the highest-ranking woman among Republican congressmen. Her impeachment is new evidence that doubts Donald Trump’s career destruction .
The day before yesterday, Cheney made a bold sign that he was not backing down. He used the podium in an almost empty conference hall to make a clear four-minute attack on his Republican opponent and defend his position. .
He said: “Keeping silent and ignoring lies will make liars feel timid,” he added: “I will not stand by and silently watch others lead our party on the road to abandon the rule of law and join the Crusades. Former President Destroy our democracy.”
Cheney’s replacement is expected to be Representative Elise Stefanik of New York, who came to the House in 2015 at age 30, then the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Stefanik’s voting record is better than Cheney’s To be moderate, but she became a strong supporter of Trump, Trump has repeatedly reiterated some of his baseless claims about voter fraud.
It is not clear when Cheney’s vote will be replaced.
The deprivation of the 54-year-old Cheney is a historic moment for Republicans.
In fact, one of the country’s two main parties has imposed special acceptance requirements on its top officials: loyalty to Trump, or at least silence because of the lies that he lost re-election in November due to fraud. In all states across the country, officials and judges on both sides have no evidence to support Trump’s claims.
Obviously, since the Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and second Steve Scalise (Steve Scalise) joined Trump and other Republicans against him, Cheney’s days in this field have been counted. Up.
Critics say that Cheney’s problem is not his opinion of Trump, but his insistence on expressing his views publicly, which undermines their hope that leaders will show their unity to participate in next year’s election.
