    House Conservatives Launch Revolt Against Liz Cheney, Draw High-Profile GOP Support
    By SEAN MORAN July 21, 2020

    House conservatives launched a revolt against Republican Conference Chair Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) during a conference on Tuesday, drawing the support of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Donald Trump Jr.

    House Freedom Caucus members, and other conservatives, launched attacks at Cheney for contradicting President Donald Trump, supporting Dr. Anthony Fauci, and backing Rep. Thomas Massie’s (R-KY) primary candidate.

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) — a Freedom Caucus co-founder, one of Trump’s top allies in the House, and the House Judiciary Committee ranking member — called out Cheney for the several times she opposed Trump, according to Politico.

    Jordan said that Cheney’s rebukes of Trump, which includes the president’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak, his Twitter account, and his plans to withdraw from Afghanistan, do not help House Republicans.

    Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), the House Freedom Caucus chairman, also accused Cheney of undermining the president’s ability to win back the House and charged that she should keep her criticisms of the president private.

    Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks,” Cheney wrote, tweeting a picture of former Vice President Dick Cheney, using the same phrase that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) used to attack the president.

    “I look forward to hearing your comments about being a team player when we’re back in the majority,” Cheney said to Jordan.

    One House GOP senior staffer told Breitbart News in a comment that, “The rank-and-file House Republicans are attempting to get leadership that actually reflects their voters on issues.”

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) charged that Cheney should step down as the House Republican Conference chair.

    “Liz Cheney has worked behind the scenes (and now in public) against @realDonaldTrump and his agenda. House Republicans deserve better as our Conference Chair,” Gaetz wrote. “Liz Cheney should step down or be removed.”

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Biggs complained to Cheney that she supported Massie’s primary opponent.

    Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who faces a tough reelection this year, noted that his Democrat opponent retweeted Cheney’s praises of Fauci.

    The House Republicans’ backlash against Cheney garnered support from top Republicans such as Paul and Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son.

    “We already have one Mitt Romney, we don’t need another… we also don’t need the endless wars she advocates for,” Trump Jr. wrote.

    We should all join @realDonaldTrump in advocating to stop our endless wars. Liz Cheney not only wants to stay forever, she’s leading the fight to try to stop him from leaving. Unacceptable,” Paul wrote in a tweet.

    Cheney also called Trump’s recently planned withdrawal of troops from Germany “dangerously misguided.”

    Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) also lashed out at Cheney for her hawkish foreign policy. Norman also brought up the Bush administration, to which Cheney said, “I’m not a Bush,” although, she is the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

    House conservatives such as Massie, Gaetz, and Biggs introduced an amendment to remove Cheney’s measure in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would tie the president’s hands on withdrawing from Afghanistan.

    In an interview with Breitbart News Tonight host Rebecca Mansour, Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), a military veteran who served in Afghanistan, called Cheney’s amendment “egregious” and “exactly the opposite of what we should do.”

    Trump Goes After Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney Days After House Allies Call For Her Ouster
    CHRISTIAN DATOC SENIOR WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT

    9:24 AM ET
    President Donald Trump tweeted harsh criticisms of Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the highest ranking female Republican in the House, Thursday morning.

    Trump’s comments come two days after Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz and other Trump allies called for her ouster from GOP leadership at a closed-door conference meeting.

    “Liz Cheney is only upset because I have been actively getting our great and beautiful Country out of the ridiculous and costly Endless Wars,” Trump wrote. “I am also making our so-called allies pay tens of billions of dollars in delinquent military costs. They must, at least, treat us fairly!!!”

    The president also retweeted a message from Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul calling on Cheney to step down from her post.

    “We should all join @realDonaldTrump in advocating to stop our endless wars,” Paul tweeted. “Liz Cheney not only wants to stay forever, she’s leading the fight to try to stop him from leaving. Unacceptable.”…

    Cheney*sided with House Democrats to block Trump from withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan and Germany in early July.
    She shook off the attacks from members of her own party during an interview with Fox News.

    “On our side of the aisle, it’s a healthy thing for us to have those kinds of debates and discussions,” Cheney stated. “I’m sure we’ll have more as things go along, but the fundamental point here is that we’re unified in making sure that President Trump is reelected in November, that Nancy Pelosi is no longer speaker, that we take back the majority in the House and that we ensure that we hold the majority in the Senate.”
    She also addressed Trump’s tweet directly Thursday morning.

    “It’s no secret the president and I disagree on some foreign policy issues,” she told Politico before adding that her highest priority is to “provide for the defense of the nation.”

    How the hell did she move up the leadership ranks so quickly anyways?

    Wyoming is a tough place to unseat an incumbent. Also Kanye West is now there, probably needs to suck up to her to get things done.
