Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Breitbart.com: “McCarthy Won't Back Effort to Remove Cheney from Leadership Post”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will not join efforts to remove House Republican Conference chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) from her leadership role in the wake of her vote to impeach President Donald Trump over last week’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, according to a report.

A spokesman for McCarthy confirmed the news to the Hill amid calls from several House conservatives for Cheney to be ousted. On Wednesday, Cheney was one of ten House Republicans to vote in favor of impeachment, with the measure passing by a count of 232 to 197. McCarthy voted against the move.

Notably, Cheney’s vote prompted calls for her resignation from her post from Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). “We ought to have a second vote,” Jordan told reporters Wednesday. “The conference ought to vote on that.”

“I’m not going anywhere,” Cheney told Politico reporter Melanie Zanona. “This is a vote of conscience. It’s one where there are different views in our conference.”

Cheney announced her support for impeachment on Tuesday, sending shockwaves throughout Washington, DC.
