Sen Romney Criticizes RNC for Seeking to Condemn Reps Cheney and Kinzinger

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) criticized the Republican National Committee (RNC) for seeking to condemn Representatives Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) over their participation in the January 6th Committee investigation.

Romney is reacting to the effort by the RNC to condemn the two Republican Representatives with the potential to back and fund a Republican primary challenger to Cheney in Wyoming.

Kinzinger decided to retire from Congress after this year.

Romney criticized the RNC in a Tweet.

The Washington Post reports:

The RNC is expected formally to condemn the two lawmakers Friday and plans to fund a primary challenge against Cheney. A resolution before the RNC states that the behavior of Cheney and Kinzinger “has been destructive to the institution of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Republican Party and our republic.”

Republican Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) also questioned the action by the RNC.

Cheney and Kinzinger voted to impeach former President Trump over the January 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol.

Cassidy and Romney voted to remove Trump from office in the Senate trial even though Trump has already left office. Four other Republican Senators voted with Romney and Cassidy.

Romney also voted to remove Trump from office during the first impeachment trial.

Cheney reacted to the RNC effort.

Dr. Kelli Ward, the chairwoman of the Arizona GOP, summed up the feeling of many Republicans about Cheney and Kinzinger.

Ward’s assessment of Cheney and Kinzinger is correct – the January 6th investigation is indeed phony and it’s only goal is to damage Republicans and Trump before the midterm elections.
