Liz Cheney, Ousted from Party Leadership, Invokes ‘Power of Faith’

WASHINGTON (RNS) — On the eve of her removal from the House Republican leadership for failing to back President Donald Trump’s attacks on the 2020 election, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney cited principles she insisted were foundational for many conservatives such as herself: the U.S. Constitution, the rule of law, and faith.

In a defiant speech in the House chamber Tuesday night (May 11), the Wyoming lawmaker cited Pope John Paul II and appealed to “faith and freedom.”
