Discouraging Trump’s Republican opponents: The influential Representative Cheney was ousted from office by the House of Representatives bloc. She had warned of “a dangerous personality cult around Trump.”
Republicans in the United States House of Representatives removed Liz Cheney from her position as leader of the parliamentary group. She was number three there. The ruthless critic of former President Donald Trump voted unopposed. Cheney remains deputy.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s daughter has repeatedly contested Trump’s false claims that he was only denied victory in the November election through widespread fraud. She also accused Trump of inciting his supporters before storming the Capitol in January. After that, she was one of the few Republican lawmakers to vote for impeachment against Trump.
Cheney recently condemned “a dangerous and anti-democratic personality cult around Trump” in her party, as the former president recently managed to consolidate his power. They were last seen voted out of office. The Cheney dispute is also a dispute over the political direction of the Republicans after Trump.
Cheney wants to move on
Cheney was a warrior after he was out of office to vote. She will continue to try to dissuade her party from following Trump. She told reporters that she would do her best “to ensure that the former president does not approach the Oval Office again.”
Some Republicans tried to vote for Cheney again in February. However, they failed the secret voteNot least, not least because Kevin McCarthy, leader of the congressional group, had supported Cheney at the time. Most recently, he has spoken out against them, and so has platoon manager Steve Scales.
A Trump supporter is likely to be the successor
It is widely expected that Elise Stefanik Cheney will succeed MEP member of the European Parliament. In 2015, at the age of 30, she was the youngest woman to be elected to Congress. Meanwhile, Stephanic has evolved into an outspoken advocate of Trump.
After Trump sided with Stephanic, 36-year-old McCarthy, the leader of the parliamentary group, promised his support.
