Rep. Matt Gaetz gave War Room behind the scenes details of what happened in the closed door meeting to oust Liz Cheney from GOP leadership, Wednesday.
“We’ve all known for some time that Liz Cheney is the masthead for the establishment in Washington, D.C.,” Gaetz said.
Gaetz said the meeting began with Cheney giving a speech about how “she is going to lead the party to make it worthy of Lincoln again.”
Rep. Virginia Foxx then introduced a resolution to remove Cheney, and “reminded Liz Cheney that a leader with no followers is just a person on a walk.”
The unrecorded vote to remove Cheney as conference chair is just one move in an ongoing battle that’s not red vs. blue, but “the establishment versus the rest of us,” Gaetz said. He emphasized the importance of recruiting more MAGA candidates, because “personnel is policy.”
“The battle has not ended today,” he said.
