(LibertySociety.com) – On Wednesday, a group of Republican congressional representatives demanded House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) remove Representatives Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) from the GOP Conference.
The letter was signed by 40 Republican legislators stating their disdain for the “egregious actions” of Cheney and Kinzinger for making the January 6 committee a bipartisan venture.

The group feels the two lawmakers don’t represent the Republican party in the commission, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) requested their presence. Conservatives point to Cheney and Kinzinger’s cooperation in issuing allegedly improper subpoenas and “other investigatory tactics” tantamount to nothing less than harassment.
That wasn’t the first time Republicans attempted to remove the pair from the conference. Freedom Caucus Chair Andy Biggs (R-AZ) requested McCarthy remove them in September.
GOP members who take orders from Pelosi and the Far Left have made it clear they no longer represent the GOP.
Thats why I just sent a letter to @GOPLeader McCarthy to create a rule that would remove GOP members who work for the opposition.

In July, the House of Representatives formed a 9/11-style commission to investigate the events surrounding the Capitol riots on January 6 in Washington, DC. The group includes seven Democrats and only two Republicans: Representatives Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL).
Kinzinger’s spokesperson said the letter was “sad but not surprising,” and he intends to continue defending and protecting the US Constitution. There’s no word about a timeframe for a vote by the GOP conference on the matter.
