GOP Votes to Censure Liz Chaney and Adam Kinzinger
The Republican Party votes to censure Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) for participating on the January 6 Commission to investigation the insurrection on Capitol Hill to overturn the election...
Mother Jones reports,
At its winter meeting, the Republican National Committee overwhelmingly voted to censure Cheney and Kinzinger, the sole Republican members of the select committee investigating the attack on the Capitol. Kinzinger, like several other Republicans who voted to impeach Donald Trump, has already announced that he won’t seek another term. But after today’s resolution, the Republican Party will officially back Cheney’s primary challenger.
The committee’s resolution reads, in part: “WHEREAS, Representatives Cheney and Kinzinger are participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse, and they are both utilizing their past professed affiliation to mask Democrat abuse of prosecutorial power for partisan purposes, therefore be it RESOLVED, That the Republican National Committee hereby formally censures” Cheney and Kinzinger.
