Trump Makes Huge Move, Endorses Elise Stefanik To Replace Liz Cheney In GOP Leadership
Former President Donald Trump just made his move to remove Liz Cheney from GOP leadership by endorsing New York Rep. Elise Stefanik to replace Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney as chair of the House Republican Conference.
“Liz Cheney is a warmongering fool who has no business in Republican Party Leadership,” Trump wrote in a statement that effectively ens the debate on whether to remove Cheney.
“We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement and prioritize the values of America First. Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL Endorsement for GOP Conference Chair. Elise is a tough and smart communicator!” Trump added.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy confirmed the rumors that the GOP members are not happy with Cheney although he did not say she would be removed. He went on “Fox & Friends” to confirm there is indeed a push to oust Rep. Liz Cheney from GOP leadership, but said it was not over her vote to impeach Trump but rather her inability to stay on message.
Kevin said: “No, there’s no concern about how she voted on impeachment. That decision has been made. I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair, to carry out the message.
“We all need to be working as one if we’re able to win the majority.
“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.”
Cheney was able to keep her job in leadership when she won what was not a close vote but times have changed and so have the number of GOP members who want her removed.
According to one report, they have already started discussing who will replace her with Elise Stefanik being just one GOP Rep under consideration.
Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) heads a powerful conservative caucus in the House. He said her constant criticisms of Trump are “an unwelcome distraction.”
House Republicans are moving closer to ousting Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from leadership, and are already considering replacements — including Reps. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) and Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.), congressional aides tell Axios.
What we’re hearing: Most members recognize Cheney can’t be succeeded by a white man, given their top two leaders — House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) — fill that demographic.
The conference meets next Wednesday, May 12. Most members expect the process to oust Cheney to begin then, whether formally or informally, after some of McCarthy’s top lieutenants broadened their complaints against her.
