Recently in the news, Liz Cheney becomes the latest House Republican to be censured by the state party for her vote to impeach Trump. She voted Saturday to formally censure Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 Republican in the House, for her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump in the latest example of a state GOP punishing lawmakers who have bucked the former President. "My vote to impeach was compelled by the oath I swore to the Constitution. Wyoming citizens know that this oath does not bend or yield to politics or partisanship," Cheney said in a statement Saturday. "I will always fight for Wyoming values and stand up for our Western way of life. We have great challenges ahead of us as we move forward and combat the disastrous policies of the Biden Administration. I look forward to continuing to work with officials and citizens across Wyoming to be the most effective voice and advocate in defense of our families, industries, and communities," she added. She has faced intense backlash from Trump loyalists in her party for her vote last month to impeach Trump for "incitement of insurrection," following the January 6 attack on the Capitol. In a statement before she cast her vote, Cheney said Trump "summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack." "There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution," she said at the time. House Republicans on Wednesday voted 145 to 61 in favor of keeping Cheney on as conference chair after she defended her support for impeachment during a contentious closed-door conference meeting.
