The GOP’s brewing civil war will take center stage this week, when House lawmakers decide the fates of two Republicans who are on opposite sides of the fight over the direction of the post-Trump party.
First up, the House Republican Conference will huddle in person on Wednesday morning to debate the future of GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, who voted on Jan. 13 to impeach President Donald Trump. A group of hard-line conservatives is leading a charge to oust Cheney from leadership, and says it has commitments from more than 100 colleagues who are willing to vote on a secret ballot to remove her.
But whether Cheney (Wyo.) actually gets the boot likely depends on whether Republican leadership allows the resolution to be considered right away, unless two-thirds of the conference demands an immediate vote. And while House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has expressed his own frustrations with how Cheney handled her impeachment vote, the California Republican has also said he wants her to keep her job and has been desperately trying to put on a united front publicly.
McCarthy is also facing intense pressure to discipline another Republican: freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who is under fire for a long list of incendiary and offensive remarks that have surfaced in recent days. That includes questioning the veracity of some of the nation’s deadliest school shootings and endorsing social media posts that called for violence against Democrats…..
The minority leader, who is desperate to keep his ranks united as they turn their focus to next year’s midterms, has been trying to make amends with Trump and even met with him at his Florida resort last week. After the rendezvous, McCarthy made clear that the former president would be an integral part of their efforts to win back the House.
“United and ready to win in ’22,” McCarthy tweeted after his meeting with Trump.
Yet some Republicans, including firebrand Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, have blatantly ignored McCarthy’s pleas for party unity….
