“We’ve researched the rules thoroughly and there has been a lot of discussion on how to handle this,” Montana Rep. Matt Rosendale told Newsmax. Cheney ”is out of step with the conference in such a monumental way.”

Rosendale was the first House Republican to call for Cheney’s removal as the House Republican Conference chair after her renegade vote.

Under current GOP caucus rules, any member can trigger a request for a panel to consider whether a member is fit to remain in their post. As conference chair, however, Cheney would be entitled to select panel members and stock it with her allies.

GOP insurgents say that they would counter this move by invoking rule 6(d), allowing the full Republican conference to weigh in in an up or down vote if they get 50 signatures.
