GOP Replaces Liz Cheney with Trump Loyalist Elise Stefanik

HeadlineMay 17, 2021

House Republicans have elected New York Congressmember Elise Stefanik as their new conference chair. This comes two days after Republicans ousted Wyoming’s Liz Cheney from the leadership role, after she voted to impeach former President Trump for inciting the deadly January 6 Capitol insurrection. Stefanik is a Trump loyalist and has called him “a critical part of our Republican team.”

On Friday, lawmakers reached a deal to set up a bipartisan commission to investigate the Capitol insurrection.
