Liz Cheney foes plot removal from GOP leadership after impeachment vote
House Republicans on Wednesday night voted to keep Rep. Liz Cheney as their No. 3 leader.
The vote, which passed 145-61, was pushed by a faction of hard-right conservatives in the lower chamber vexed by Cheney’s decision to support the impeachment of former President Donald Trump.
Cheney, a daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, was just one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump last month.
At a meeting earlier Wednesday attended by her GOP colleagues, Cheney stood her ground.
“I won’t apologize for the vote,” she said, a source told The Associated Press.
During a break in that closed-door session, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters he’d defended Cheney inside.
“People can have differences of opinion. That’s what you can have a discussion about,” he said.
“Liz has a right to vote her conscience,” said McCarthy.
