Rep. Rosendale: Cheney’s impeachment vote shows its time for new GOP leadership in Congress
Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-MT, joined Sara Carter on the “Sara Carter Show” podcast Monday to discuss his thoughts on the future of the GOP as he pushes for Rep. Liz Cheney, R-WY, to resign as the Congressional leader of the party after she voted for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
“Everyone can vote their conscience, absolutely, positively. You can vote your conscience. But when you come out and represent your vote, as the leader of the conference and release that information in such a fashion that it gets displayed as your vote has more weight than another representative, now we have a problem,” Rosendale said.
“The democrats use it against the republican party, not just against Donald Trump, they use it against the republican party all day long. And for that purpose, is why I’ve got a really big problem and say, how can she effectively lead the conference when she is so out of step and did her best to undermine that very conference that she is supposed to be a leader of?” Rosendale questioned.
Rosendale went on to say that the Republican party needs strong leaders who will listen to Americans and fight for them.
“The heart and soul of the party is intact,” Rosendale told Carter. “It has not changed. What we continue to see is this battle for the control of the leadership of the party.”
“[Americans] are searching for is someone that’s going to stay with them and fight hard for them and with them,” Rosendale said.
