Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, is now claiming that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyom) was ‘canceled’ by being voted out of leadership by her fellow Republicans on Wednesday morning.
As The Hill reports:
As House conservatives banded together Wednesday to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.) from the GOP leadership ranks, one conservative lawmaker was sounding a discordant note, warning that Cheney had been “canceled” in the same manner Republicans have condemned.
Buck, a member of the far-right Freedom Caucus, suggested Cheney has every right to air her grievances with former President Trump and his false narrative surrounding his election defeat, even from a leadership position. That criticism was the reason she was dumped from the No. 3 leadership spot on Wednesday.
Most conservatives, backing Trump, said Cheney was the wrong fit to remain conference chairwoman, since her message bucked that coming from other Republican leaders.
Is Buck right that Cheney was ‘canceled’ for speaking her mind, or did her previous obnoxious comments denigrating former President Trump make her a RINO who was asking to be removed? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
