Schiff Statement on House Republicans’ Vote to Remove Rep. Cheney from Leadership

Washington, DC –Today, Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) released the following statement after House Republicans removed Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from her leadership position:

"In deposing Liz Cheney today, the Republican Party further united behind the belief that fidelity to the former president is more important than fidelity to the Constitution or our democracy and that the Big Lie is more important than truth.

"The Republicans’ decision to blindly support Trump, and punish those who speak truth to power, represents a clear danger to our democracy and an abdication of responsibility to protect the American people and our elections."
