Congressman Andy Biggs, (R-Arizona), called for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) to resign as the House Republican Conference chair after supporting the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump.

Biggs, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, told Fox News that Cheney is not representing the Republican conference.

“She’s not representing the Republican ideals,” he said.

Congressman Matt Rosendale (R-Montana) shared the sentiment.

“When Representative Cheney came out for impeachment today, she failed to consult with the Conference, failed to abide by the spirit of the rules of the Republican Conference and ignored the preferences of Republican voters. She is weakening our conference at a key moment for personal political gain and is unfit to lead. She must step down as Conference Chair.”

Cheney became the first GOP member of the House to announce support for ousting Trump.
