Business Insider is reporting that a wave of recent criticism from GOP colleagues has the future of anti-Trump Rep. Liz Cheney very much in doubt.

“The past few weeks have seen a cascade of developments that seriously imperil Cheney’s leadership role — and her future within the party,” they write.

The report adds it is “a stunning reversal for a candidate who in the past has been touted as a potential House speaker, US senator, or president.”

CNN buoys the reporting by the Business Insider noting House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) declined to endorse Cheney when asked whether she “was still a good fit for leadership.”

They reference a pair of other Republican lawmakers who believe Cheney “is not speaking for the conference” despite being the number 3 House Republican.

Criticism Of Liz Cheney

The Business Insider notes that Liz Cheney received a wave of criticism after she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump due to his alleged incitement of the Capitol protests.

Still, in February, the caucus voted 145-61 to keep her in a leadership role.

Rather than try to unite the party around a set of shared conservative goals championed by Trump, Cheney has insisted on keeping up the attacks on the former President.

She accused possible Republican presidential candidates in 2024 of engaging in “disqualifying” behavior by objecting to the certification of electoral votes in January.

“I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying,” Cheney told the New York Post.

Cheney also took a ton of heat for being caught giving Joe Biden a fist bump before the President’s address before a joint session of Congress last week.

Cheney, in another interview last week, doubled down on her impeachment vote and said she’d run on impeaching Trump “every day of the week.”

‘No Support In Her Own Caucus’

Representative Lance Gooden (R-TX) wasn’t shy about making a prediction for Cheney’s future saying, “She’ll be out of her GOP leadership role by month’s end.”

Senator Josh Hawley mocked Cheney’s White House aspirations recently, saying she doesn’t speak for Republicans and has “no support in her own caucus.”

Trump also took a shot at Cheney calling her a “warmongering fool.”

“Liz Cheney is polling sooo low in Wyoming, and has sooo little support, even from the Wyoming Republican Party, that she is looking for a way out of her Congressional race,” he claimed in a statement.

Even McCarthy, who publicly backed Cheney remaining in leadership just two months ago, refused to endorse her as a “good fit” for party leadership.

“That’s a question for the conference,” he said.

Cheney refused to rule out a future run for President of the United States when asked by the New York Post.

“I’m not ruling anything in or out — ever is a long time,” she told the newspaper.

Her actions in the past several months all but guarantee she has no chance of winning the Republican nomination.
