GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, the number three House Republican, responded to calls for her to resign after she came out in support of impeaching President Trump.
“I’m not going anywhere” Cheney told reporters at the Capitol Wednesday.
“This is a vote of conscience. It’s one where there are different views in our conference. But our nation is facing an unprecedented, since the civil war, constitutional crisis. That’s what we need to be focused on. That’s where our efforts and attention need to be.”
Earlier today, Rep. Jim Jordan, a staunch Trump ally on Capitol Hill, told reporters he thinks Cheney should be ousted from her leadership position after she said she’d support impeaching the President.
Cheney announced Tuesday she would vote in favor, issuing a scathing statement that charged there had “never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.”
