Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) predicted Saturday that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) will be fired from her House leadership position by the end of the May.
“Liz Cheney has promised she will campaign on impeaching Trump ‘every day of the week,’” Gooden tweeted. “Good luck with that, Liz! PREDICTION: she’ll be out of her GOP leadership role by month’s end!”

Cheney has been targeted by fellow Republicans since voting to impeach former President Donald Trump following the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
In February, the Wyoming GOP censured Cheney for her vote to impeach Trump. Only eight of the party’s 74 members did not side with her censure.
The move was largely symbolic. The censure did not provide a way to remove the congresswoman from office.
Cheney refused to quit following the censure. Instead, she noted her oath “doesn’t bend to partisanship, it doesn’t bend to political pressure,” according to The Associated Press.
Despite Gooden’s predictions, Cheney will likely remain in office until the next election. It will be voters rather than tweets on Twitter that will decide whether Cheney will continue in office after 2022.
