The knives are out for Liz Cheney.
The GOP caucus, a member of the Wyoming Congress and leader of the House 3, faced a rebellion from conservative lawmakers unhappy with his yes vote to impeach President Trump.
Cheney was one of only 10 House Republicans to come together with the Democrats on Wednesday.
Some Republicans want an internal coup using a playbook employed during the 1997 effort of then-speaker Newt Gingrich.
“We have thoroughly researched the rules and there has been much discussion on how to handle it,” Montana Rep. Matt Rossendale told Newslax. Cheney “is out of the conference in such a monumental way.”
Rosnell was the first House Republican to call for Cheney’s removal as the Speaker of the House Republican Conference after the Renegade vote.
Under current GOP caucus rules, any member can request a panel to consider whether a member is fit to continue in their position. However, as conference president, Cheney would be entitled to select panel members and stock up with his colleagues.
GOP rebels say they will counter the move by implementing Rule 6 (d), weighing the full Republican convention in an up or down vote if it is signed.
