The resolution, which does not strip Cheney of any power, cleared the Wyoming GOP Central Committee on Saturday by a vote of 31-29, the report said.
“It’s laughable to suggest Liz is anything but a committed conservative Republican. She is bound by her oath to the Constitution. Sadly, a portion of the Wyoming GOP leadership has abandoned that fundamental principle, and instead allowed themselves to be held hostage to the lies of a dangerous and irrational man,” Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler said in a statement to CNN on Monday.
CNN has reached out to the Wyoming GOP for comment.
Despite the frequent criticism from her Republican colleagues, Cheney has continued to speak out against Trump and his election lies, casting his message as a dangerous direction for the party and the country.
The congresswoman also sharply criticized House Republicans for continuing to support Trump, noting he had reportedly said the insurrection was on Election Day, rather than January 6, at the conference’s annual fundraising dinner.
“Political leaders who sit silent in the face of these false and dangerous claims are aiding the former President, who is at war with the rule of law and the Constitution,” Cheney said. “When our constitutional order is threatened, as it is now, rising above partisanship is not simply an aspiration. It is an obligation.”
