On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell praised Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney as an “important leader” who acted with courage to vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
“Liz Cheney is a leader with deep convictions and the courage to act on them,” McConnell told CNN. “She is an important leader in our party and in our nation. I am grateful for her service and look forward to continuing to work with her on the crucial issues facing our nation.”
On Tuesday, Senator Lindsey Graham also defended Cheney as more than half of the House Republican Conference has committed to vote to remove her a leadership role.
Cheney is facing backlash after she voted to impeach President Donald Trump last month....a move that many Conservatives see as traitorous. However, Graham is called her “one of the strongest and most reliable Conservative voices.”
“I believe @RepLizCheney is one of the strongest and most reliable conservative voices in the Republican Party. She is a fiscal and social conservative, and no one works harder to ensure that our military is well prepared,” Graham tweeted.
“Liz knows that a strong America is a safe America. She believes we must confront radical Islam and take the fight to them to ensure there are no more 9/11’s,” he added. “In the eyes of many – Liz Cheney’s experience, leadership, and strength are invaluable to the Republican Party.”
