Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has officially been ousted from her Republican leadership post Wednesday, Salem Radio reports.
House Republicans removed Cheney as GOP conference chair by a voice vote.
She came under fire for her push against former President Trump, who suggests replacing her with Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) but many conservatives worry she is too far left.
“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney told reporters after her ouster.
“We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language,” she added. “We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the Constitution, and I think it’s very important we make sure, whomever we elect, is somebody who will be faithful to the Constitution.”
Trump responded in a statement, calling her a “bitter, horrible human being” who is “bad for the Republican Party.”
The former president slammed her as a “talking point for Democrats” on “the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy,” adding that she is a “warmonger.”
“I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!” Trump concluded.
