Since the storming of the Capitol last Wednesday, Republicans have faced infighting regarding the future of the GOP and the level of blame that should be placed on President Donald Trump (R) after the riot. Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R), a staunch supporter of the President, voted this week against impeaching the President, but some of his Republican colleagues voted in favor of impeachment.

One of those who voted in favor of impeaching the President is is Rep. Liz Cheney (R), daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney (R), a controversial figure in American politics.

Cheney led the Republican charge to impeach the President.

In an interview with Sean Hannity on FOX News, the Florida lawmaker expressed his disagreement with Cheney, arguing that “if we’re going to fight back against those who are trying to silence the America First agenda, it cannot be with Liz Cheney as the Republican conference chair.”

In her remarks concerning Trump’s impeachment, Cheney argued that “there has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.” One of ten Republicans that voted in favor of impeachment, Cheney made it clear that she believes the President incited the storming of the Capitol, saying that he “summoned” those that were present that day and that “everything that followed was his doing.”
