GOP braces for wild week with momentous Cheney vote

All three of those questions will take center stage Wednesday when the GOP conference will gather behind closed doors in the Capitol to decide the fate of Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the third-ranking House Republican, whose sustained attacks on Trump for lying about his election defeat have quickly made her a pariah in the eyes of many colleagues. “She’s done as a member of leadership. I don’t understand what she’s doing,” said a former House GOP lawmaker. “It’s like political self-immolation. You can’t cancel Trump from the Republican Party; all she’s done is cancel herself.”... “You're not going to win or hold some of these swing seats if it's all about loyalty to a person,” said former Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.). “We certainly know that Trump divided the country and lost the House and lost the Senate — he lost the [popular vote] two times — and you're now going to hang your hat on the guy who got 47 percent” in 2020? “That's nuts,” she added. “He's not going to get more votes. His people are dying off.”
