GOP leader allies want Cheney out of leadership by the end of the month

Two reported allies of minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) promised The Hill that they will oust Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as GOP conference chairwoman as soon as this month.

“She is a big distraction,” one McCarthy ally reportedly said. “I don’t see McCarthy saving her this time.”

This comes after Cheney tweeted out her response to Former President Trump, who said in a statement: “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” Cheney did not hide her disdain for those who agree with Trump. 

“There is no way that Liz will be conference chair by month’s end,” this first ally reportedly went on to say. “When there is a vote, it won’t be a long conference; it will be fast. Everyone knows the outcome.”

A second ally reportedly confirmed the reports of the first. “This is a broad range of lawmakers who have had it with her,” the ally said. “She’s a liability, and McCarthy’s as fed up as the rest of us that she is focused on the past rather than winning back the House.”

McCarthy confirmed parts of the rumors on Fox and Friends Tuesday. “I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job, carry out the message,” the California representative said.

However, it’s not because of her opinion on Trump. McCarthy denied any grudges because of her recent tweet. “There’s no concern about how she voted on impeachment,” McCarthy said.

Finally, McCarthy alluded that he just wants the best future for the Republican party. “Majorities are not given, they are earned.”

A spokesperson for the GOP did not give a comment to SaraACarter.com.
