Wyoming's Carbon County Republican Party voted to censure Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., for graduate together with eight House Republicans to impeach President Trump on charges of"incitement of an insurrection."
This censure resolution was filed to be considered by the Wyoming Republican Party's State Central Committee.
"Representative Cheney has violated the trust of her voters, failed to faithfully represent a huge bulk of motivated Wyoming voters, and failed her duty to represent the party and the will of the people who chose her to represent them," the resolution states.
The Wyoming GOP has condemned Cheney for its vote and demanded she"explain" her vote during its next meeting.
"By announcing her decision to vote for impeachment Representative Cheney denied President Trump due process; she judged the'evidence' before it had been introduced and refused to listen to the arguments made," that the Wyoming GOP stated in a announcement last week.
An online request to recall Cheney on Change.org also includes more than 33,000 signatures.
"I will continue to speak to and hear from my constituents all over Wyoming," Cheney told the Casper Star-Tribune later she graduated a week. "However, when it came down to this, the president the United States incited a mob to attack and interrupt the democratic procedure. And then, while the violence played out, the president refused to take steps to prevent it. In my mind, those are completely high crimes and misdemeanors. There is just simply no wonder. This was a vote that could have nothing to do with party or with politics."
Cheney isn't the only Republican who voted for impeachment to face backlash -- even though she is your highest-ranking one. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash., is confronting criticism from her district's conservative base. Washington state group Clark County Republican Women pledged to back a primary obstacle to Herrera Beutler within the impeachment vote. Herrera Beutler's district includes Clark County.
"If you throw this vote to impeach, then you will never receive our votes or support at any moment in the future," Clark County Republican Women stated in a letter to Herrera Beutler. "Additionally, we will do everything in our power as the biggest Republican Women's business in Washington State to recruit and elect a conservative candidate that will reflect our values."
Herrera Beutler responded by stating she took a stand for"my country and also the United States Constitution."
"A ruthless cop that uses violence to stop the Constitutionally-mandated counting of electoral votes is an assault on the U.S. Constitution itself. The President either desired the mob he helped mobilize to take such measures, or he did not care enough about his job responsibilities to try to prevent them as they hunted down his Vice President and conquer Capitol police officers; either way, it is impeachable. Let the political chips fall where they may," Herrera Beutler explained in a statement to Fox News.
The Senate is expected to pick up the impeachment trial following President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.
