It’s no secret that, despite being one of the most successful conservative presidents in our lifetime, Trump was not entirely supported by the GOP. Plenty of so-called Republicans opposed him from day one. Only a few, however, were willing to openly defy him over his years in office.
Since Congress certified the 2020 election results, it appears these RINOs have comes out to show their true colors. In addition to administration staff resigning in a huff, plenty of D.C. Republicans have drawn knives to stab in Trump’s back.
They claim it’s because they believe he was behind the events of January 6. But it’s far more likely they never supported his America First agenda and are finally able to revert back to their globalist ways.
Now, as Democrats push for impeachment, House Republican Conference chairwoman Liz Cheney is back the effort. So, some of her colleagues want her out.
House Freedom Caucus Chair Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT) called for Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WI) ouster as the House Republican Conference chairwoman Tuesday night after she came out in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump…
“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.” [Source: Breitbart]
Rosendale and Biggs used very strong language to condemn Cheney’s last-ditch effort to save her own skin. But her turncoat actions should not be a huge shock to most. The daughter of Dick Cheney, one of the most notorious RINOs in American history, never backed Trump’s America First agenda. Like many others connected to the Bush era, she found ways to oppose Trump since he entered office.
The facts do not stand with Cheney. Even if the House manages to pass their one article of impeachment, it stands no chance in the Senate. The Senate will not reconvene until January 19, one day before the Inauguration. Will the Senate bother to vote on impeachment of a president no longer in office? Unlikely. Even if they do, they will not have the 67 votes needed to convict.
So, is Cheney doing this because she thinks it is the right thing? That Congress can actually remove Trump and prevent him from running again? Or because she thinks this will put her in the good graces of the D.C., which never supported Trump and wanted him gone for years?
Honestly, you’ll have to make up your mind on this one. But it doesn’t bode well for the Wisconsin representative, after two key leaders in her conference called her out. Republicans by and large, continue to support Trump, including the millions who voted for him. To turn on him now doesn’t seem to be the “right” thing to do, but the thing that could protect a person’s career.
And those kinds of moves never work well for Republicans.
