Some fraction and schism bubbled to the top of the GOP broth this week in the forms of Republican Representatives Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
The two reps, who are serving on the January 6 committee to look into the matter of the storming of the Capitol, have been accused of betrayal of their party and subservience to the Democrats that only a true RINO would embrace.

The Chairman of the Freedom Caucus, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) rather succinctly told the Washington Examiner that, “The reality is, they’re now basically working with and for the Democrats, and so it’d be awkward for them to be sitting in our committee while we talk about policy, put, you know, strategy and how to stop bad policy from the Democrats and advance good policy from us. It’d be really awkward,”.
Thus, Biggs introduced a resolution with the high-minded purpose and goal of removing Cheney and Kinzinger from the GOP conference.
This sentiment has been shared with many other GOP acolytes such as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) who, rather extraordinarily but not untruthfully, referred to to Cheney and Kinzinger as, “Pelosi Republicans”. Representative Matt Rosendale of Montana echoes both McCarthy and Biggs, wittily adding that “You can’t spend halftime in the opponent’s locker room and expect the team to welcome you back for the rest of the game. I hope the GOP Conference will seriously consider this.”. Rosendale began by saying that he is “extremely supportive” of Biggs’ resolution.
Finally, Republican Texas Representative Chip Roy said to the Washington Examiner earlier this week that “[Cheney and Kinzinger] [are]on an island over here, and they’re choosing teams at this point, and they’re saying, ‘Oh, so I’m totally fine saddling up with the speaker of the House of the United States House of Representatives, who, by the way, is killing our country at the border, killing our country on spending.”.
