Jordan Says Cheney Should Step Down From GOP House Leadership

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is calling for the ousting of House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) from leadership after she pledged to vote to impeach President Trump for inciting last week’s riot at the Capitol.

Jordan, a founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and one of Trump’s top defenders in the House, joined other GOP allies of Trump in calling for Cheney to step down from the role.

“The conference ought to vote on that,” Jordan told reporters, according to the Capitol Hill reporter pool. “We ought to have a second vote.”

Jordan’s comments echo those of Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MO) and Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ).

“When Representative Cheney came out for impeachment today, she failed to consult with the Conference, failed to abide by the spirit of the rules of the Republican Conference, and ignored the preferences of Republican voters,” Rosendale said in a statement Tuesday. “She is weakening our conference at a key moment for personal political gain and is unfit to lead. She must step down as conference chair.”

“She is weakening our conference at a key moment for personal political gain and is unfit to lead. She must step down as Conference Chair,” Biggs told Fox News host Shannon Bream. “I don’t think she should be the chair of the Republican conference anymore. The reality is she’s not representing the conference; she’s not representing the Republican ideals.”

“The reality is she’s not representing the conference; she’s not representing the Republican ideals,” he said.

    Cheney’s family along with the Bush family helped to develop the tragedy to guarantee mail-in voting. Without that ‘illegal’ voting method Trump would win. Now her ALLIES are threatening to expose her. WYOMING please get rid of this criminal.

    The RINO’s make me ill, VOTE THESE PUKES OUT, or find another LEGAL means of their permanent removal. I HATE TRATORS, my preference would be a trial for treason and then a good old fashioned HANGING.

    What I want to know is when will the Republican Party grow a backbone and stand up for what is right and what the people who sent them to DC want them to do. They are worst than traitors they are cowards, they want to play touch football while the Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists are playing full on tackle . It is time to give the these people a taste of their own medicine. Impeach Biden for the activity of his Crime Family, bring Hunter up on charges, and let us not forget that Madam Speaker’s son was also working for one of the Ukraine oil companies also with no experience in energy or in the Ukraine. These people need to be treated in the very same way as they have treated President Trump. The Republicans should Obstruct every idea, candidate or proposal that the Dems make. Launch investigations into where and how Schemer, Palosi and Biden made so much money while supposedly working as a member of the House and Senate. They are all Multi-Millionaires and their families are all worth Millions.

    I am from WY. I know that for as Red as that state is they will have fits of fury for Liz. She may be Dick’s daughter but to be that much against our president will get her out of office in two years.

    Liz Cheney is not representing the people of the State of Wyoming either. She has betrayed the very people who elected her. She has thrown off the disguise and shown Americans that she is a true RINO. Wyoming republicans hate RINOs and will end her political career in this state. she better seek a position in the Biden camp.

Being a reporter seems a ticket out to the world.
