(TargetLiberty.org) – Two anti-Trump Republican legislators are facing expulsion from the House party, after 50 of their colleagues sponsored a resolution to kick them out.
Republican National Committee (RNC) member Jonathan Barnett told journalists on Tuesday that a resolution to expel two of the former president’s fiercest opponents is rapidly picking up support. It is due to be introduced at the House Republican Conference winter meeting at the end of this week.
The resolution targets Representatives Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who are both serving on the Democrat-led committee looking into last year’s Capitol Hill riot. Barnett called the committee “an inquisition” and said it’s one-sided and focused on digging up dirt.

Barnett said many Republicans are frustrated with the committee and “don’t understand Liz and Adam.” The frustration is particularly intense among Republicans in Cheney’s state; the resolution was launched by Wyoming GOP chairman Frank Eathorne. Now, at least 50 RNC members have agreed to co-sponsor it. If it passes at the winter meeting, which is currently running in Salt Lake City, UT, the pair will be banned from running as Republican candidates or caucusing with the GOP.
Is the party right to take action against dissident members? Will the Republicans be stronger if its House representation is slightly smaller, but more unified?
