(UnitedVoice.com) – On Tuesday, May 11, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) took to the House floor to attack former President Donald Trump. She accused him of trying to undermine US democracy and made a number of other inflammatory comments.
The morning after her speech, conservative lawmakers ousted Cheney as the chair of the House Republican Committee, the third most powerful GOP position in the lower chamber. The move came after months of tension between her and the rest of the party. Trump spoke out about her ouster after the vote, calling her a “bitter, horrible human being.”
Now Republicans will have to decide who’s going to take over her position. There are rumors that New York Rep. Elise Stefanik is the shoo-in, but other members of the party want there to be a longer vetting process to ensure they get someone who truly belongs in the role. Hopefully, whoever that person is, learns from Cheney’s mistakes.
