It was recently reported that the two Republican members of the January 6 House Select Committee are furious after the Republican National Committee voted to censure them.Both representatives had, what some could call, a tantrum on Twitter just before the official vote.
“The leaders of the Republican Party have made themselves willing hostages to a man who admits he tried to overturn a presidential election and suggests he would pardon Jan. 6 defendants, some of whom have been charged with seditious conspiracy,” Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney said.

“I’m a constitutional conservative and I do not recognize those in my party who have abandoned the Constitution to embrace Donald Trump. History will be their judge. I will never stop fighting for our constitutional republic. No matter what,” she added.
“I’ve been a member of the Republican Party long before Donald Trump entered the field,’ he said, adding that his ‘core beliefs’ have not changed,” GOP Rep. Kinzinger said.
“Rather than focus their efforts on how to help the American people, my fellow Republicans have chosen to censure to lifelong Members of their party for simply upholding their oaths of office,” he said. “They’ve allowed conspiracies and toxic tribalism hinder their ability to see clear-eyed.’
“My efforts will continue to be focused on standing up for truth and working to fight the political matrix that’s led us to this point,” he said.
According to the Washington Post, via the Daily Mail, the Republican National Committee, which is meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah, from Wednesday through Friday, will consider a proposal to formally expel the two lawmakers from the House GOP Conference for attempting to “destroy President Trump.
The push, which is being led by former Trump adviser David Bossie, comes at the RNC’s annual meeting. Cheney and Kinzinger are the only two Republicans on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked Jan. 6 Committee investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol Building, which both GOP lawmakers have blamed on Trump.
