House conservatives are renewing their calls for Rep.

House Freedom Caucus members are going after Cheney, chair of the House Republican Conference, following an awkward moment during a press conference Wednesday with the House GOP leader. Just moments after McCarthy said he thought Trump should speak at the CPAC gathering this weekend in Florida, Cheney reiterated her position that she does not think the former president should have a place in the Republican Party because of his role in the deadly insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

“That was one of the most outrageous statements, but it's consistent with at least four other statements she's made in the last few weeks. As you know, some of us in this group led a charge to remove Ms. Cheney as the chairwoman leader of the Republican conference. I do not believe she is able to carry that out any further,” House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) said at a press conference on Thursday.

“I also think she's absolutely devoid of any kind of political reading of what's going on in the Republican Party in this country right now,” he added. “My guess is there's probably no room in the party for somebody who takes the positions that Ms. Cheney does and that makes the accusations that she does. She should step down — if she had any sense of shame, she would step down.”
