Liz Cheney says she won’t cave to pressure to resign from GOP leadership

After a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol last week, and Democrats have been trying to blame the president for the criminal actions of people he’s never met. Unfortunately, even his own party has decided to pile on the blame.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who is the third highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives, joined Democrats in a vote to impeach Trump Wednesday, Breitbart reported. Now, fellow Republicans are calling for her to resign from her position as House Republican Conference Chair, but she ended any speculation that she would comply by declaring that she “isn’t going anywhere” in a statement on Tuesday. 

Cheney made it known she would vote with Democrats to impeach the president the day before the official vote. Speaking about the attack on the U.S. Capitol that left five dead, including a police officer, the lawmaker said the “insurrection caused injury, death and destruction in the most sacred space in our Republic” in a statement Tuesday.

“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” Cheney charged. “Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President,” she added. “The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.”

Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ),  Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) have called for her resignation for her betrayal to the president and the GOP. “We ought to have a second vote,” Jordan, conservative favorite and founder of House Freedom Caucus, said. “The conference ought to vote on that.”

Cheney wasn’t alone in defecting from her party. Nine other GOP representatives voted to impeach along with the Democrats, although Cheney was her party’s highest-ranking member in of the House to do so.

Other notable lawmakers included freshman Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI) who wasted no time turning against his party’s president and Rep. David Valadao (R-CA) who unseated the Democrat incumbent only to immediately side with Democrats. Valadao called Trump’s rhetoric “un-American, abhorent, and absolutely an impeachable offense” in a tweet Wednesday.

The attack on the Capitol was appalling and horrific to patriotic Americans. However, the tactics seem very much like a continuation of the violence and destruction that political protestors have been inflicting on the nation since the death of George Floyd last May — the difference is that Democrats and the media were more successful in pinning the blame on their political rivals than the GOP.

  1. I can sort of understand a new congressman being inexperienced and just dumb. But Cheney and the other seasoned reps, they done it for their own personal benefits, i.e Cheney for her fathers legacy “Trump doesn’t like personally”, Kinzinger for he wants to be the president “Never will”, Cotton wants it also but showed he can’t be trusted, etc.

    1. Matt, I answered your comments, but have been censored and taken off. Anyway, Cheney, her father, and all the Bush family are one world order types and they fit right in with the very corrupt Clinton, Obama, Biden, cartel.

      1. Agree. Must take her out. Im sick of all the rinos, betrayals to our president and our country. ENOUGH is ENOUGH!

      2. Bob, You are so very correct!! Cheney, father, and Bush family are absolutely as corrupt as the Clintons!! Now throw in the Clintons, Obama, and Biden into the big mix and you have a huge crime family!! I sure hope someone checks into the Biden Crime Family!! We all know it, but the average person does not!!

  2. I have never seen the stupidity of so many in DC that would think our President had anything to do with any type of violence !! He loves this country and has done soo much to get it back from the tragedy of the Obama years … never give up and never concede !!!

    1. Mickelb, very difficult to not give up when one political Party is so powerful they can say and do anything and even the supreme court does nothing. I do not like what the future of the United States has in order for its citizens because China owns Joe Biden and he would let them rule us. Crazy Joe has been compromised via all the criminal activities he, his son, and all his brothers have done. I will be 82 years old in a month, so do not expect to be around for another presidential election.

      1. I’m just a few years behind you, and you are spot on. I feel for my kids and grandkids. It’s hard to see how this is turned around. ” Biden was born stupid, and has greatly increased his birthright. “

      2. I’m with you Bob! I’m 82 and will never again (if I’m still alive) vote for another Republican. They have no idea how to stick together and are appeasing democrats for favor. They are all on the swamp.

        1. My sister and I have said the same thing. The republicans have no backbone and can’t stick together. We will never vote again. I’m 77 and she is 74. I’m just praying the good Lord comes and takes us out of this mess.

        2. Joanne you are wrong. All republicans are not rinos and we needed this mess to show us which ones are. Have faith in God and pray. And the next time the the rinos will be voted out of office.

    2. They know damn well he had nothing to do with it. If you noticed, not a single piece of evidence was used to support their case. The President nor his legal staff were allowed to offer a defense and they did this all in a matter of 1 hour or so. No, this was the Swamp Creatures convening a kangaroo court. There is now evidence that left wing radicals were involved in inciting this riot, one was just indicted.
      I hate violence in protests but it looks as though if anything is ever to be accomplished that is what it will take. I’m sure the tea party was called radical thugs and seditionist by the British. I’m not sure they realize how close we are getting to a second civil war.

      1. not close,it’s here just bullets haven’t started flying yet.After biden get’s in the chinese are coming in to take over and we are doomed

    3. Mickelb, your “…get it back from the tragedy of the ***** years” is an understatement. I do not utter that name whenever I discuss and talk about past US Presidents.
      For me and my house, this man, unbeknownst to those who voted him into office, was that piece of disgusting humanity which fomented the socio-political problems today.

    4. CNN reporters were filmed and audiod inside the Captol as part of the inciters and rioters.to not only FB but CNN also behind the mayhem to make POTUS look lke the culprit. i KNEW IT. tHESE PEOPLE HAVE SO MANY DIRTY SICK TRICKS up their wazoos they should go to china and teach them a few tricks. or they probably pcked them from their Harvard & Yale professors.

    5. Mickelb- what world do you live in, Trump told them to go to the Capital and then watched it on TV not trying to stop the violence, and just in case you are still believing the election was stolen, that was one of the big lies from Trump.

      1. You are as stupid as they come! Trump did not call for violence & you know it! Just remember what goes around comes around & hell is not a good place to end out! Your party is the ones that represent violence.!

  3. Look up the Western Journal. There are two article you will not find in the down stream propaganda press. One is a mclaughlin poll showing that over 70% of republican’s will not vote fer a rino that supports impeachment. They made a big miscalculation on that. There is another story about the FBI and the fact they knew the day before about the violence and did nothing.

    1. One more reason not to watch the View! Not th ever have. They are all brainless idiots she should be a perfect match for them!

  4. Those 10 republicans saw the light==the truth of the riot on the capitol. Sorry more didn’t, they just didn’t want the right to bad mouth them like you’re doing above. The left & right need to work together for the good of our country, not tear it apart. Just because Trump can’t stand loosing should be a lesson for all. God bless america and one and all.

    1. Dear Independent,
      What is the definition of working together? The right surrendering totally to the radicals, agreeing to their every word and action, and promising never to question them again? Get freaking real!!! Thet only want to cancel us, not work with us. You can have them all, including China Joe. He will never be my President. My President would never sell his country out.

      1. You are right—our Pres. Trump would never sell his country out, & he is not so much upset at losing as he is mad at being
        cheated.
        I understand that the Capitol Chief of Police asked for support
        SIX TIMES & was denied! Plus there was help from the inside.
        It was planned. & the FBI knew about it 2 days beforehand but
        ignored it! Why all this makes it Pres. Trump’s fault is mind-
        boggling! The phony impeachment should be rescinded.
        Pelosi rushed to judgment, full of venom as usual.

        1. Peelosi is the one who needs to be impeached. She is as batty as usual & should be committed to the psycho ward!

    2. the left is cheating and tearing everything apart.You think you know what’s up but you are clueless.You guys effectively put us under chinese rule.Just wait they are gonna be over here,and that’ll be blamed on Trump also.The chinese will dispose of every one of us because they don’t want us they want our resources.The ten republicans that flipped are idiots that were paid off or stuck some kind of a deal.btw it’s losing,not loosing.

    3. Trump didn’t loose! Put that in your crack pipe & smoke it! The election was rigged & at that time you were on your high & didn’t notice!

  5. Most people see the real hypocrisy of all of this BS!! The left has incited the public so much worse than this!! Unbelievable if you listen to his speech when he says go in peace! But our media spins everything out of control and has people believing their lies without thinking. I am from Wyoming and believe me we will NOT forget and Cheney will be gone!!

  6. Every single member of congress that actually believes this was not the criminal democratic Party’s antifa should resign immediately! You are delusional! Our president has done nothing but work for actual Americans, not lying, cheating treasonous democrats! And yes he he still the president won in a landslide 133m registered voters he had 75m do the math !

  7. I’m with you – these Republicans are just plain stupid & definitely don’t deserve to be in Congress. First, Trump Supporters have never been violent. The riot was planned (probably by the democrats) because it was infiltrated with Antifa & BLM dressed up at Trump Supporters & carrying weapons (sledgehammers, baths, etc.) – Trump supporters didn’t bring weapons. And Trump didn’t say anything in his speech at the White House about storming the Capitol. Three military guys that had come up for the Trump rally said they didn’t realize Antifa, BLM, etc. was in the crowd until they starting pushing in a line into the Capitol. The guys said they didn’t intend to enter the building but were pushed & when they turned around, they realized it was Antifa. Antifa came online & bragged about being there – how come these Republicans are so gullible! Don’t they think at all about what happened – about how or why. This makes me sick – I want to go down there & yell at them to WAKE UP!

  8. I agree with every one of you all. Did you see anyone really trying to stop them?? I saw one Police Officer open the whole he was closing and with a big smile, let them thru. Like he was one of them. I don’t condone fighting, but I don’t back down either. I have always stood my ground! I hate it happened, but it is what it is and they want to DEFUND the Police. I say give the POLICE a raise! I am a redneck from Georgia and I know when not to get trampled on!!!!

  9. I urge all true republicans not to work with the Rhinos, Cheney, McConnel, Romney and others in the leadership of the party as they are working to help the Dems, and will only cause problems with in the party. We need to remove them as quickly as possible, and deny them access to the party organization, or any help from the party. If they are going to help the dems, they will have to find another way. They have betrayed the people, and are no longer deserving of their support.

    1. agree no worries they are all be gone after the awakening I say before Inauguration till the 24th takes time to arrest thousands of Criminals give it a few days to clean up swamp oh by the way did you guys know they expanded Gitmo?

  10. Well we Republicans don’t have to listen to her rhetoric, and descent from the Republican Party. She is a democrapic dung beetle in disguise!

  11. HAS ANYONE CONSIDERED THE MIX OF POEPLE IN THAT CROWD , I DO NOT BELEIVE THIS WAS A REPUBLICAN GROUP. DEMS AND OTHER MIX OF TRUMP HATERS EASILY MIXED IN AND CAUSED ALL THE TROUBLE. WAKE UP AND EXAMINE WHERE AND WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE. WE NEED A WAKE UP CALL AND TRUE EXPLANATION NOT B. S. IS THERE ANY PERSON WHO CAN TELL THE TRUTH.

  12. Liz Cheney’s hatred of Trump is so evident. She is out for revenge because of what Trump said about her father. She is not working in the best interest of our party or our citizens. She must go. The Democrats can have her along with the other 10 weak opportunistic Republicans who voted to impeach. Oh! Wait! The Democrats won’t want these mealy mouths either. Bye buy. Your careers are over.

  13. You know Biden and fellow democrats bailed some rioters out of jail a few months ago wonder if any of these stormed the capitol. Bet he will not get impeached if he were to get investigated and he is found guilty of bailing out antifa and black lives matter groups.

  14. I am seriously thinking that I will not ever again support either a Republican or Democrat candidate for any political office. The Democrats have shown us clearly that they are candidates that are influenced/lead by Hate Mongering, Power Hungry Tyrants seeking ABSOLUTE POWER. Republicans have become pansies that just ‘go along to get along’. Now would be a perfect opportunity for Americans to do away with BOTH of the Established political parties, due to extreme corruption in both, and go after putting Independents with no political affiliation into office. We also need to downsize from the 500+members of Congress & Senate to one of each to represent their State. The money saved with this one move would be a great incentive. If these people cannot work together to represent ALL of America, then WE will remove them & make the decision by voting ourselves. Politicians need to know & be reminded OFTEN that they WORK “FOR US”!

  15. She may not “cave”, but Americans are watching and listening. You can and will be replaced by someone more loyal to The Party! Be on the R.I.N.O. alert, replace as soon as possible!

  16. I HAVE NOT WATCHED TV, READ A NEWSPAPER, OR LISTENED TO RADIO SINCE THE DEMS STOLE THIS ELECTION. DID YOU ALL REALLY THINK WE WOULD BELIEVE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TO BLAME FOR THE STORMING OF THE CAPITAL.
    FIRST OF ALL HOW DID ANYONE EVEN GET UP THE CAPITOL STEPS WHETHER THEY WERE DEMOS, REP, ANTIFI OR WHATEVER THEY WANT TO CALL THEMSELVES? THIS WAS ALL PLANNED BECAUSE PRES. TRUMP HAD A RALLY FAR ENOUGH AWAY FROM THE CAPITOL AND WITHIN MINUTES AFTER THE RALLY CONCLUDED THE CAPITOL WAS STORMMED. REALLY DO YOU THINK THOSE OF US WHO ARE JUST COMMON FOLK BUY THE FACT THAT TRUMP INCITED THIS? REALLY? THIS WAS PLANNED BY THE DEMS TO IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT A SECOND TIME. REMEMBER WHAT PELOSI SAID “WE HAVE A LOT OF ARROWS IN OUR QUIVER” THINK ABOUT THIS AMERICA.

  17. Those who have taken away our 1st amendment rights will not let me express my thoughts and my outrage at the DEMS & RINO’S who are mucking up our country. I do not and will not recognize JB as my President. Amen to all the posts below.

    1. Millions of us r in ur corner
      A STOLEN ELECTION IS NOT A WIN!!!
      Never My POTUS but a TRUE ILLEGITIMATE POTUS!
      Who speaks for we the ppl. – not corrupt bought & paid for Clueless China Joe!
      God HELP US ALL!!!!

  18. LIZ CHANEY IS JUST LIKE HER FATHER, THE SONGBIRD. THE APPLE DOES NOT FALL FAR FROM THE TREE, ESPECIALLY IF IT IS ROTTING TO THE CORE.
    WHAT A SAD WOMEN, WITH NO CARACTER.

  19. Just another RHINO they r as DEEP AS THE DEEP SWAMP – have to support their lobbyists & special interest groups as they r mostly bought & paid for – BOTH PARTIES CORRUPT!!! Not many true Republicans left folks! We the ppl NO longer have a party!!

  20. I encourage all of you who are Septuagenarians and Octogenarians to keep your calm and peace within yourselves.
    Keep voting and never give up your God-given gift of free will. Vote for the “righteous” candidate always.
    I am 87 years old, just like you, and I’m still using my vote to tell every candidate I vote for what I want them to do for me!!! Never give up, never give in to evil.

  21. Bob I am 84 and will be here for the next Presidential election and so will you. I feel impeachment should be on Pelosi plus, but our Political party are brain dead with so much hate in their heart for our President Trump who has done great for our Country. they can’t see straight I fear for our country and us the American citizens.

  22. There were 10 or 12 RHINOS that NEED TO BE VOTED “OUT” OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. YOU “KNOW” we have PROOF that there was at least “1” ANTIFA RIOTER in the CAPITOL and where there is ONE there are probably MANY MORE that will be IDENTIFIED before its over! ANTIFA is like BLM, if there is ONE there are probably many more in HIDING!

  23. Liz Chaney is stupid. How much did they promise you for voting against the American people? Don’t tell me you didn’t get paid for your betrayal. Just like Mitch.

  24. Cheney must go and all that act like her or I predict next election Republican Party will have very little support. Many of us who are not Republican support them now and probably many more than they realize.

  25. LIZ is like her father, she claims to be a Republican but votes like a Democrat. She should be blackballed by the
    republicans.

  26. Joe boy says he will take your gun. SELF PRESERVATION IS THE FIRST LAW OF NATURE. THE FIRST LAW OF A TYRANT IS GUN CONFISCATION. HITLER, STALIN, MODERN DAY TYRANTS. ADD JOE BOY TO THAT LIST. IS AMERICA REALLY TURNING ANOTHER TYRANT LOOSE ON THIS WORLD. WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF JOE BOY? JOE BOY WHY ARE THOUSANDS OF NATIONAL GUARD NECESSARY FOR YOUR NAUGHRAL? IS IT BECAUSE A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS HATE YOU AND YOUR DOUBLE STANDARDS YOUR FRAUD YOUR CRIMINAL BEHAVIOUR AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?

  27. Anyone that voted for jo boy biden is an accessory to his double standards, his fraud, his lies, his entire family’s criminal activity against the American people. Being an accessory to a crime is one of the main principles of law. You can’t just make this stuff up. Joe boy is the worst thing too happen to the American people in my lifetime of 78 years.

  28. joeboy biden displays very little brain function. pelosi is in the same boat. She might be even more brain dead than joeeboy. Their hate has destroys their ability too think and reason like a normal human being. You can’t get good fruit and bad fruit from the same tree. You reap what you sow. They have been sowing bad seeds for years until they have no concept for the difference between right and wrong. Their lies, deceit fraud, corruption, and selling their souls to the devil for the dollar has destroyed their honesty and integrity. This same thing goes for the gaggle . of their lockstep blind leading the blind followers. As they have destroyed themselves they are now trying too destroy the United States. I guess I could have said the same thing in one sentence. All of these corrupt liars and deceivers are crazy nut jobs.
