The U.S. House of Representatives Republican caucus has thrown in with the former Liar in Chief and decided that a truth-teller among its ranks has no place in its leadership.
Rep. Liz Cheney this morning was stripped of her title as chair of the House GOP caucus, the No. 3-ranking post among congressional Republicans.
Prediction: Liz Cheney isn’t going to skulk away quietly.
Indeed, she said today that she intends to do all she can to ensure that Donald Trump never sets foot in the Oval Office ever again.
Good for you, Rep. Cheney.
Be not confused here. I detest Cheney’s politics. I do admire her courage in standing firm against Donald Trump’s role in the Jan. 6 insurrection and her vote to impeach Trump a second time when he exhorted the terrorists to storm Capitol Hill.
Cheney told the truth about Trump. Her colleagues in the House are having none of it. They have shamed themselves and their governing institution.
