House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was caught bashing Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Tuesday during a hot mic moment before a live interview on Fox News.
“I think she’s got real problems,” McCarthy told Fox News host Steve Doocy right before appearing on “Fox and Friends,” according to Axios. “I’ve had it with … I’ve had it with her.”
He added, “You know, I’ve lost confidence. … Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place.”
During his interview, McCarthy noted the GOP is past the congresswoman’s impeachment vote against Trump. His concern involves her ability to represent her role as a House Republic now and in the future.
“I haven’t heard members concerned about her vote on impeachment. It’s more concerned about the job, ability to do, and what’s our best step forward that we can all work together instead of attacking one another,” he said during the interview.
A growing coalition of House Republicans is now working to oust Cheney. Some sources have reported she’ll be out of power by the end of the month.
Cheney has refused to resign. She told Fox News in February, ““I think people all across Wyoming understand and recognize that our most important duty is to the Constitution.”
She may not resign, but Cheney’s days appear to be numbered. Republicans appear to have a plan in motion to change her status in the House sooner rather than later.
