Points
  • Earlier this year, Rep Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) easily staved off an effort by some members of the House GOP to remove her from her leadership position because of her decision to vote to impeach former President Donald Trump.
  • Now, though, even some of her colleagues who backed her aren't sure they'd do the same thing again.
  • When asked about him, which is not infrequently, Cheney has never refrained from criticizing Trump, which one anonymous GOP lawmaker said shows she's "completely out of synch with the majority of our conference," The Hill reports.
  • "As we're focused on unifying the Republican conference and our mission to win back the majority, she is focused on the past and proving a point.
  • She is alienating herself from the conference, and I have to imagine if she doesn't resign there will be a new vote in the near future and the result will be lopsided in the opposite direction of what it was before.
