Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has more Republican bona fides than even former President Donald Trump. Still, on Wednesday evening the caucus met to discuss whether to oust her as the GOP Caucus Whip because she voted to impeach Trump for the insurrection on the U.S. Capitol Jan. 6. After a vote, she managed to hold onto the seat with just 61 Republicans voting to remove her from the leadership.

Cheney drew criticisms from those in the caucus behind closed doors, according to sources, while others appeared to stand up for her. The vote was by secret ballot, so members didn't have to identify who opposed Cheney. She was one of ten House Republicans who voted for impeachment.

When it came time for Republicans to discuss Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) spreading conspiracies about 9/11, school shootings or the Jewish Space Laser, Republicans said that they simply didn't have time to vote on it. She did get a standing ovation, however.
