GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA) has joined a group of people in the Republican party who are calling for the resignation of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) as the House Republican Conference chair.
In a statement posted on Twitter on Wednesday, Greene said, “I’m calling for @RepLizCheney to step down as Chairwoman of the House Republican Conference.” She went on to say that Cheney “doesn’t represent Republican voters by supporting this political witch-hunt impeachment of President Trump. She is not connected to the base and is voting for a hurtful lie.”

Cheney Asked to Resign For Supporting Trump’s Impeachment
Greene’s statement comes after Reps. Matt Rosendale (R-MT) and Andy Biggs (R-AZ) asked Cheney to resign for supporting the impeachment against Pres. Donald Trump.
“Much more will become clear in the coming days and weeks, but what we know now is enough. The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President,” Cheney remarked in a statement released on Tuesday.
“The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” she added.
“I will vote to impeach the President,” Cheney went on to say added.
Meanwhile, Rosendale also released a statement on Tuesday. In it, he said, “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.”

He added, “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.”
Regarding the matter, Biggs spoke to the Washington Examiner and said Cheney ”should resign her position as a conference chair and should not be serving this conference. That’s it.”
