The job description for “Representative” is obvious.
You’re supposed to REPRESENT the will of the people that you serve!
And it is clear that Liz Cheney did the exact OPPOSITE by voting to impeach President Donald Trump.
Liz Cheney is one of the few Republicans who broke ranks and voted against the President.
Now… it appears that her actions are coming back to haunt her.
Cheney has been CENSURED in Wyoming for her impeachment vote.
Liz Cheney should not be the Chair of the Republican Conference.

In other words, a sitting United States Senator betrayed her office and her oath to the Constitution. So where is Liz Cheney on impeaching Harris? https://t.co/IC769tiGFY

If Cheney had hopes of a political future, it looks like those dreams may now be dead.
Many people in her home state of Wyoming are ANGRY at her.
Other observers even think she won’t be able to win her next primary.
The Washington Times reports:
The Republican Party Central Committee in Carbon County, Wyoming, has censured Rep. Liz Cheney for voting to impeach President Trump, as support for the one-time rising GOP star crumbles in her home state.
The censure resolution passed in a unanimous vote by the 45-member central committee. It included a demand that Ms. Cheney appear before the committee to explain her actions.
“Our representative did not represent our voice,” said Carbon County GOP Chairman Joey Correnti IV, who presented the resolution to the central committee at a Saturday meeting where the vote took place.
The resolution condemns Ms. Cheney for conduct described as defying the will of most Wyoming Republican voters and joining in a rushed impeachment that did not examine all the facts and denied Mr. Trump due process.
The resolution also declared that a “vocal majority of Wyoming Republicans recognize there were significant irregularities” in the Nov. 3 presidential election.
Allegations of ballot fraud and election irregularities were the basis for the Jan. 6 pro-Trump rally that preceded the siege of the Capitol building that temporarily halted the Electoral College vote count that affirmed President-elect Joseph R. Biden’s victory.
The censure is the latest blow to Ms. Cheney, a member of the House Republican leadership team and the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney.
If Republicans were as loyal as Democrats, perhaps the party (and our COUNTRY) would be in much better shape today.
But the Republican party appears to be filled with many swamp creatures.
And these swamp creatures are stabbing President Trump in the back left and right.
They’ve only been waiting for an opportune moment to do so.
Now, Liz Cheney may LOSE her GOP leadership position.
The New York Post reports:
The knives are out for Liz Cheney.
The Wyoming congresswoman and No. 3 leader of the House GOP caucus faces an uprising from conservative lawmakers unhappy with her yes vote to impeach President Trump.
Cheney was one of only 10 House Republicans to side with Democrats Wednesday.
Some Republicans are looking to stage an internal coup using a playbook employed during an attempted ouster of then-Speaker Newt Gingrich in 1997.
“We’ve researched the rules thoroughly and there has been a lot of discussion on how to handle this,” Montana Rep. Matt Rosendale told Newsmax. Cheney ”is out of step with the conference in such a monumental way.”
Rosendale was the first House Republican to call for Cheney’s removal as the House Republican Conference chair after her renegade vote.
Under current GOP caucus rules, any member can trigger a request for a panel to consider whether a member is fit to remain in their post. As conference chair, however, Cheney would be entitled to select panel members and stock it with her allies.
May this be a lesson to all Republican Representatives and Senators.
Think twice before stabbing the people you represent in the back!
Remember, you are in Washington D.C. to serve and represent your constituents!
