Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and Eight Other Republicans In House Of Representatives Buck The Trump Tide

Ten Republican members of the House of Representatives have been pilloried for having principles, and voting to impeach Donald Trump in the second impeachment he has faced, with the trial coming up next week.

The two best known members of this group are Liz Cheney of Wyoming, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, and third ranking in the Republican House leadership as the House Republican Conference Chair; and Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger, who has been a regular critic of Donald Trump over a period of time.

But the others who have also become part of this select group of principled Republicans also face anger and threats from other Republicans and from portions of their voting populations.

These include:

Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
Peter Mejier of Michigan
Dan Newhouse of Washington
Fred Upton of Michigan
John Katko of New York
Tom Rice of South Carolina
Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washingto
David Valadao of Washington

Meanwhile, seditious Congressmen and Congresswomen, such as Jim Jordan of Ohio, Paul Gosar of Arizona, Andy Harris of Maryland, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, and most notably Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, and innumerable others, have committed and been involved in promoting criminal acts, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California has made clear his goal is to take action against the ten principled members, and support the traitors instead!
