Pelosi: GOP in Cheney ouster declared 'courage, patriotism and integrity' not welcome

Source: The Hill


BY CELINE CASTRONUOVO - 05/12/21 11:54 AM EDT

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday condemned House Republicans for voting to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her GOP conference leadership post, declaring that the Republican Party does not welcome values of “courage, patriotism and integrity.”

Pelosi in a statement released by her office following Republican lawmakers’ overwhelming vote in favor of dumping Cheney as the No. 3 House Republican said, “For the sake of our democracy, reasonable Republicans across the country must take back their party.”

“Congresswoman Liz Cheney is a leader of great courage, patriotism and integrity,” the Speaker wrote. “Today, House Republicans declared that those values are unwelcome in the Republican party.”

Pelosi went on to say, “The Republican denial of the truth presented by Congresswoman Cheney is reflected in their denial of the need to seek the truth in a January 6th commission and to repair the damage of January 6th with a security supplemental immediately.”

Democrats fundraise off of vote to remove Cheney from GOP leadership

BY JULIA MANCHESTER - 05/12/21 11:58 AM EDT

Democrats sought to fundraise off of Rep. Liz Cheney's (R-Wyo.) ouster from her House leadership post on Wednesday, hitting the GOP for bowing to former President Trump.

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.) blasted out an email urging supporters to donate in an effort "to stop extremist Republicans from returning to power in 2022," while House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) sent an email to supporters praising Cheney for being one of the few Republicans to push back on Trump's assertion that there was widespread voter fraud in last year's presidential election.

"The dangerous evolution of the Republican Party into an anti-truth, autocratic cult has never been more clear, or our need to fight it," Schiff, who helped lead Democrats' first impeachment effort against Trump, wrote in his fundraising email.

House Republicans voted behind closed doors to remove Cheney from her post as GOP conference chair after she spoke out against Trump on numerous occasions, including blaming him for inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

7. Nancy P knows . . .

only reason why Cheney went forward was because she has major support from anti-shitholers.

It's going to get uglier with the fucked up republican party.

And they are totally insane.

8. And all 32 House Republican women know that. Sucks to be them.

Speaker Pelosi and 89 House Democratic women could help them move their future votes, since it's clear that the Republican men of the House will not support Republican women's oaths of office and consciences any more than they support Liz Cheney's.
