(UnitedVoice.com) – Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has been under fire recently for her January 13 vote to impeach former President Donald Trump. The congresswoman was one of the leading voices in the movement to remove the commander-in-chief from office before his term was up. She’s now facing the consequences of her treacherous actions.
According to a February 2 report by the Casper Star-Tribune, the Republican Party in 10 Wyoming counties have voted to censure Cheney, the representative for the state’s only congressional district.

The Sweetwater County GOP said the congresswoman “betrayed the trust and failed to honor” the will of her constituents. According to election data, 69.9% of Wyoming voters cast ballots to elect Trump in 2020.
Not only is Cheney facing blowback at home, on Capitol Hill, Republicans want her stripped of her leadership role. Trump supporters in the House are taking steps to oust her. Although some high-ranking members of the party are supporting her, like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), it’s unclear if that’ll be enough to save her job.
