Cheney addressed reporters that were waiting outside the room where the vote took place. She told them she did not feel betrayed by her party because of the vote.
However she doubled down on her disdain for former President Trump, telling reporters she will fight against his reelection. “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney said.
According to a statement Wednesday morning, Trump was looking forward to her removal, calling it “a great opportunity.” “As a representative of the Great State of Wyoming, Liz Cheney is bad for our Country and bad for herself,” Trump wrote on his blog. “Almost everyone in the Republican Party, including 90% of Wyoming, looks forward to her ouster—and that includes me!”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) echoed Trump’s statement following the vote. Gaetz called the vote “the right decision.”
However Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) disagreed, calling the vote “a flashing red danger sign for our democracy.”
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) also disagreed with the vote. “Now,” Schiff tweeted, the Republican party is “the party of lies, with one lie bigger than the rest.”
Leading up to the vote, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) warned that ousting Cheney from the 3rd highest position in the party could lose the Republican party voters.
Cheney railed against Utah voters for booing Romney during the state GOP conference last week.

Biden impeachment hearing to begin this week, GOP announces first witnesses
The House Overusing Committee is holding the first impeachment hearing into President Joe Biden this Thursday and has announced the first three interview witnesses. The impeachment process will assess whether then Vice President Joe Biden received a bribe from a Ukrainian businessman to change the outcome of U.S. policy.
The committee announced three witnesses, including George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley, former Assistant Attorney General, United States Department of Justice Tax Division Eileen O’Connor, and forensic accountant Bruce Dubinsky.
“Since January, House Committees on Oversight and Accountability, Judiciary, and Ways and Means have uncovered an overwhelming amount of evidence showing President Joe Biden abused his public office for his family’s financial gain,” said Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) who also made the following lengthy statements:
“Thousands of pages of financial records, emails, texts, testimony from credible IRS whistleblowers, and a transcribed interview with Biden family business associate Devon Archer all reveal that Joe Biden allowed his family to sell him as ‘the brand’ around the world to enrich the Biden family. Joe Biden showed up on at least two dozen occasions to send signals of access, influence, and power to those who were paying the Bidens.”
“Based on the evidence, Congress has a duty to open an impeachment inquiry into President Biden’s corruption. Americans demand and deserve answers, transparency, and accountability for this abuse of public office…This week, the House Oversight Committee will present evidence uncovered to date and hear from legal and financial experts about crimes the Bidens may have committed as they brought in millions at the expense of U.S. interests.”
Just The News reports: Prompting the impeachment inquiry is an unclassified FD-1023 form that contains confidential human source information outlining an alleged bribery effort. The tip describes an arrangement in which Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky allegedly hired Hunter Biden to secure access to his father, upon whom he leaned to secure the firing of then-Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the firm.
