The party voted to stop recognizing Congresswoman Cheney as a member of their ranks.

Over the weekend, the members of the Wyoming Republican party voted to strip Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney of her position in the party. The party’s primary problem with Cheney is her stance against former US President Donald Trump, as well as her position on the House select committee that’s currently investigating the Capitol riot on January 6.

The members of the party have acknowledged that while they can bar Cheney from their proceedings, doing so is a largely symbolic gesture intended to demonstrate their disapproval with her stance. They conceded that Cheney “cannot be recalled or removed from office” by her “own espoused political party.” They also acknowledged that there is no authority or act that can “forcibly change any individual’s chosen registered political affiliation, without the individual who is changing their registered political affiliation choosing to do so themselves.”

In response to the motion, Jeremy Adler, a spokesperson for Cheney, said that it is “laughable to suggest Liz is anything but a committed conservative Republican.”

“She is bound by her oath to the Constitution,” Adler said. “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.”
