U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney On The Phone

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congresswoman Liz Cheney joined nine other Republicans Wednesday in a vote supporting a single article of impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Cheney, who serves in a senior GOP leadership role, was immediately attacked by conservatives, including Representative Matt Rosendale of Montana.

Rosendale Tweeted: 

Rep. Cheney did not consult with the rest of our conference before supporting impeachment. She failed to abide by the spirit of the Conference rules & is ignoring the preferences of Republican voters. I'm calling on her to step down as Conference Chair.

Congresswoman Liz Cheney explained her reasoning for the vote in a call with members shortly after the House vote concluded.
