The Washington Post reports:
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) came under fire Tuesday from the far-right flank of the House Republican caucus, who accused her of disloyalty to President Trump and a GOP incumbent, prompting calls for a challenge to her leadership position.
Cheney, the chairman of the House Republican Conference, stood her ground and fired back at the conservative agitators, countering that they lacked loyalty to Trump and to fellow Republicans.
The unusually sharp clash occurred in the first in-person meeting of the House Republican Conference since the coronavirus pandemic shut down such large gatherings more than four months ago.
Liz Cheney has worked behind the scenes (and now in public) against @realDonaldTrump and his agenda.
House Republicans deserve better as our Conference Chair.
Liz Cheney should step down or be removed. #MAGA

We already have one Mitt Romney, we don’t need another… we also don’t need the endless wars she advocates for. https://t.co/RDkJDA9UOZ
