The Republican National Committee (RNC) officially moved to censure Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) this week for agreeing to serve on the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol insurrection and Donald Trump’s involvement.
During an RNC meeting in Salt Lake City, the RNC is preparing to censure Cheney and Kinzinger, although there are a few members who oppose the action. However, because the RNC is now dominated by Trump sycophants, the measure will likely pass.
Cheney and Kinzinger are being punished for agreeing to serve on the House committee investigating the events of January 6th when Trump incited the violent storming of the Capitol by his supporters to overthrow democracy and stay in power.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) appointed Cheney and Kinzinger to serve in response to House and Senate Republicans refusing to have anything to do with a probe of the insurrection, especially since many of them were involved.
In a statement, Cheney fired back by shaming her party for bending the knee for Trump, especially since he has admitted to trying to overthrow democracy and is now promising to pardon the insurrectionists.
“Leaders of the Republican Party have made themselves willing hostages to a man who admits he tried to overturn a presidential election and suggests he would pardon January 6 defendants, some of whom have been charged with seditious conspiracy,” Cheney said. “I’m a constitutional conservative and I do not recognize those in my party who have abandoned the Constitution to embrace Donald Trump. History will be their judge.”
Here’s the statement via Twitter:
Rep Cheney (more), “.. some of whom have been charged with seditious conspiracy. I’m a constitutional conservative and I do not recognize those in my party who have abandoned the Constitution to embrace Donald Trump. History will be their judge…”

The Republican Party is fully supportive of authoritarianism and will punish any member who stands up for democracy and the Constitution.
