RNC to Debate Removing Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger from GOP House Caucus

GOP Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) may soon be booted from the Republican House Caucus, according to reports.

At the Republican National Committee (RNC) annual meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah this week, members will debate removing the two lawmakers.

At the meeting, the RNC will consider a proposal to formally expel Cheney and Kinzinger from the House GOP Conference for attempting to “destroy President Trump.”

The move is being led by former Trump adviser David Bossie.

Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey said: “Trump ally and RNC member David Bossie is pushing the Republican Party to formally rebuke and evict Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger at the party’s annual meeting this week.

“He has submitted a resolution that could lead to an interesting vote/showdown.”

Liz Cheney said: “The leaders of the Republican Party have made themselves willing hostages to a man who admits he tried to ‘overturn’ a presidential election and suggests he would pardon Jan. 6 defendants, some of whom have been charged with seditious conspiracy.

“I’m a constitutional conservative and I do not recognize those in my party who have abandoned the Constitution to embrace Donald Trump.

“History will be their judge.

“I will never stop fighting for our constitutional republic. No matter what.”

Bossie is currently the Maryland RNC’s Committeeman. 

His co-sponsor is Wyoming state RNC Chair Frank Eathorne, another Trump ally who attended the protest outside the Capitol on January 6 last year.

The Wyoming GOP voted to un-recognize Cheney in 2021 over her efforts to work with Democrats on the Capitol riot committee.

The reported resolution is the highest-profile spat yet in the growing divide between Trump allies within the GOP and those who believe he should be held accountable for the January 6 Capitol riot and pushing false 2020 election conspiracy theories.

In the resolution text Bossie accuses Cheney and Kinzinger of trying to ‘destroy President Trump’ by working with the Capitol riot committee. 

He suggests they focus their efforts on helping Republicans win the 2022 November midterms rather than working with Democrats on the panel.

People with knowledge of the document were cited in the report.
