Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), chair of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, is building support for a push to oust Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) from the GOP conference.
Biggs is circulating a letter among Republican House members, collecting signatures, and building support to push House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to boot Cheney and Kinzinger from the GOP conference over their roles on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 investigation committee, according to CNN. Biggs’ letter argues that the Republicans on the committee should be barred from the conference to allow the GOP to “strategize” and counter the committee’s investigation into the records of GOP congressmen.
“This proposal is not because of a policy or political difference, but because some members have chosen to work with the Democrats to investigate and potentially remove Republican Members from the House,” a draft copy of the letter says. “Republican Conference meetings are an opportunity for elected House Republicans to come together and strategize the most effective path to push back on the radical policies of Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats.”
“Many of the coming discussions will likely revolve around our defense against the Democrats’ perpetuation of the false narrative that January 6th was an insurrection and how to protect our own from their legally questionable investigative methods,” the letter continues. “Congresswoman Cheney and Congressman Kinzinger are two spies for the Democrats that we currently invite to the meetings, despite our inability to trust them.”
“Speaker Pelosi is perpetuating the false narrative that House Republicans are responsible for the events that took place at the Capitol on January 6th. She has continued to brand the events as an insurrection, despite the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation testifying the events do not meet that threshold,” Biggs says. “[Pelosi] needs publicity and narrative. She needs to demonize Republicans. And this Select Committee is her path for doing so.”
