There are enough votes to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her position as House GOP Conference chair, according to a top Republican member.
Cheney, the No. 3 GOP member in the lower chamber due to her position, is facing pressure because of her continued attacks on former President Donald Trump.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, summarized the problem during a Wednesday appearance on Fox News.
“You can’t have a Republican conference chair reciting Democrat talking points. You can’t have a Republican conference chair taking a position that 90 percent of the party disagrees with, and you can’t have a Republican Party chair consistently speaking out against the individual who 74 million Americans voted for,” he said.
The caucus will likely gather next week and oust Cheney, according to Jordan.
“I think that for sure the votes are there and I think it will happen, most likely next Wednesday,” he said.
