The House Republicans have officially ousted Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from her position as GOP Conference Chair with a voice vote Wednesday.

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.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
