Pelosi Celebrates Cheney After Republicans Vote Her Out

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., stood up for Rep. Liz Cheney Wednesday and decried the House Republicans‘ decision to oust her from leadership as a sign that the GOP has turned its back on democracy.

“Congresswoman Liz Cheney is a leader of great courage, patriotism and integrity,” Pelosi said Wednesday after Cheney was removed as GOP conference chairwoman. “Today, House Republicans declared that those values are unwelcome in the Republican party.”

Cheney, R-Wyo., had remained steadfast in her opposition to former President Trump and his “dangerous lies” about the 2020 election being stolen from him — putting her at odds with other House Republicans who wanted to move on from the Jan. 6 riot and unite the party to win in the 2022 midterms.

Pelosi accused the GOP of trying to whitewash the Jan. 6 attack and she urged Cheney-aligned Republicans to continue to speak out for the truth.
