Rep. Cheney ousted from GOP leadership post​

From CNN's Annie Grayer and Dana Bash

Rep. Liz Cheney was just removed from her position as House GOP conference chair.

There was no debate inside the room, according to members in the room.

A GOP member says Cheney lost by voice vote. “No major drama, anticlimactic, compared to last time."

According to a source in the room, five people had to stand to request a recorded vote to remove Cheney from the leadership position. Apparently that did not happen, and the gavel came down.

Cheney told colleagues that it was up to Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy whether he wanted a voice vote or not, "and Kevin asked for voice," according to the source.

Cheney still remains in Congress despite being ousted from leadership​

It's important to note that Rep. Liz Cheney will still be a Republican and will still be in Congress despite today's vote to oust her from Republican leadership.

House Republicans, to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's point, are respectful of the fact that Wyoming's voters elected Cheney as their representative.

They'll get the chance to elect Cheney or someone else in 2022 at the midterm election. It seems likely that Cheney will face a primary challenge if she decides to run again. (Read more here about the view from Wyoming, where a lot of Republicans seem to believe Trump won the election.)

House Republicans, who ousted Cheney by voice vote behind closed doors on Capitol Hill, are expected to replace her with New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, who has a less conservative voting record than Cheney but has emerged as one of Trump's top defenders. Cheney did not back down in a speech before the voice vote.

CNN's Alex Rogers contributed reporting to this post.

Former President Trump just released a statement on the ousting of Rep. Liz Cheney from House Republican leader, calling her a "bitter, horrible human being."

His full statement says:

"Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being. I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country. She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy. She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history. I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!"

Cheney was ousted for her vote to impeach Trump after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and her continued criticism of him.

Key things to know about Rep. Elise Stefanik, Liz Cheney's possible replacement​

GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik now appears poised to become the next House Republican conference chair after the party united against Rep. Liz Cheney for calling out former President Trump's Big Lie that the 2020 election was stolen. Cheney lost lost her post in the House Republican leadership this morning.

Stefanik's rise within the party and embrace of Trump in recent years represents an evolution that mirrors that of her party, which coalesced behind Trump and remains loyal to him even with the former President no longer in office and after he attempted to overturn the last presidential election and incited a deadly attack on the US Capitol.

In 2016, Stefanik backed Trump as the party's presidential nominee, but worked to portray herself as an independent voice for her district.

She aligned herself at the time with House Speaker Paul Ryan, another Republican leader who carefully tiptoed around Trump's more outlandish comments and spoke out occasionally when he believed the President crossed the line.

In those early years, Stefanik largely kept out of the Trump fray, focusing instead on work on the Armed Services and Intelligence committees, though she broke with Trump over some key priorities, including his decision to withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord and the 2017 GOP tax bill.

When House Democrats moved to impeach Trump for the first time in 2019, however, Stefanik emerged as one of the President's most outspoken defenders, earning Trump's praise in the process with the President calling her "a new Republican star."

Amid Trump's false claims over voter fraud and the 2020 election, Stefanik supported an objection during the Electoral College vote count in Congress held to certify President Joe Biden's win. She also signed on in support of an amicus brief backing a lawsuit from Texas to the Supreme Court that sought to overturn the results of the election in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia.

Now, Stefanik has Trump's backing to replace Cheney with the former President saying on Wednesday that she "is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL Endorsement for GOP Conference Chair."

Cheney: "I will do everything I can to ensure" that Trump "never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office"​

GOP Rep. Liz Cheney spoke to reporters after the vote to oust her from leadership.

She said, "I am absolutely committed, as I said last night, as I said just now to my colleagues, that we must go forward based on truth."

Cheney continued: "We cannot both embrace the big lie and embrace the constitution. And going forward, the nation needs it. The nation needs a strong Republican party. The nation needs a party that is based upon fundamental principles of conservatism."

Cheney said she is committed and dedicated to ensuring that that's how the Republican party goes forward.

Ask how concerned she is that Donald Trump might end up back in the Oval Office, Cheney said, "I will do everything I can to ensure that the former President never again gets anywhere near the oval office."

"We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language. We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the constitution. And I think it's very important that we make sure whomever we elect is somebody who will be faithful to the constitution."

前总统在党内仍有很大的势力,不少党内的大佬仍然希望依靠他重振。

这回她可以名正言顺地宣布加入2024年的共和党总统候选人竞选了。

其他共和党的人都在等Trump是否接着参选。

她要宣布参加总统竞选就是政治自杀。目前共和党已经成了川普党。
其他共和党人不是喜欢川普,而是被民粹绑架了。目前共和党谁反对川普谁完蛋。

那跟参选总统有区别,一般党内参选失败,下次就没有机会。我估计她也是赌博后川普时期,等川普老去和失去影响力,她可以成为领导人,但是需要10年以上。
