Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) joined the increasing number of Republicans who are calling for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) to be voted out of her position as Republican Conference Chair after she was one of the first GOP members to come out in favor of impeaching President Trump.
President Trump is facing another impeachment vote after the riots in the Capitol building last week, as those in Congress say he was responsible for inciting the riot. At least five people died, including a Capitol Police officer and a 14-year Air Force veteran.

House Freedom Caucus Chair Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) also expressed his desire to have Cheney to be voted out.
“Well I’ve called for her resignation. I don’t think she should be the chair of the Republican conference anymore,” he told Fox News’ Shannon Bream on Tuesday. “The reality is, she’s not representing the conference, she’s not representing the Republican ideals. And I think that that’s a problem…I’m not alone in that sentiment.”
No matter what happens this next week, President Trump's America First agenda and movement will prosper.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene also joined the group and called out Cheney for supporting “this political witch-hunt impeachment”.
“I’m calling for @RepLizCheney to step down as Chairwoman of the House Republican Conference,” Greene said in a statement Wednesday. “She doesn’t represent Republican voters by supporting this political witch-hunt impeachment of President Trump. She is not connected to the base and is voting for a hurtful lie.”
In her statement, Cheney said the riot that resulted in multiple breaches at the Capitol building was Trump’s fault.
“The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” she said. “Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President.”
“There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President,” Cheney concluded.
