The Republican National Committee is preparing to censure anti-Trump reps Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
Republicans in Wyoming have basically already expelled Liz Cheney from their organization, but this is a much bigger deal.
The RNC is wise to do this. Republican voters are tired of being stabbed in the back by members of their own party.
GOP set to rebuke Cheney, Kinzinger
Members of the Republican National Committee are pushing forward with a resolution to censure Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, while stopping short of calling for their expulsion from the House Republican Conference.
The resolution, which RNC officials said cleared an RNC committee vote on Thursday, is likely to be approved by the RNC’s full body at its winter meeting on Friday. The measure rebukes Cheney and Kinzinger for their involvement on the Jan. 6 select committee investigating Donald Trump’s effort to overturn the result of the 2020 election, said Harmeet Dhillon, national committeeperson from California and one of several dozen sponsors of the resolution.
“This is not about them being anti-Trump,” Dhillon said. “There are plenty of other people in the party who are anti-Trump whose names don’t appear in the resolution. These two took specific action to defy party leadership.”
The resolution would amount to a weaker admonishment of Cheney and Kinzinger than initially proposed. Led by David Bossie, a longtime Trump ally and RNC member from Maryland, ardent Cheney and Kinzinger critics had lobbied for a resolution calling for their ouster from the House conference. That proposal had drawn resistance from some RNC members, who said they feared the language was unnecessarily inflammatory.
The Republican party would be better off without these two.
The resolution to censure Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger passes with support of almost every corner of the @GOP at the RNC meeting from what I could tell.
Everyone seems to agree that Liz and Adam shouldn’t be calling themselves Republicans taking orders from Democrats.

Let them become Democrats. They’re almost there already, anyway.
