Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) spoke to reporters briefly after her House Republican colleagues in a secret closed-door voice-only vote that was not recorded ousted her from her position as Conference Chairwoman.
"I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office," she said, referring to Donald Trump. "We have seen the danger that he continues to provoke."
Cheney was expelled for publicly stating Trump lost in a free and fair election.
"We must go forward based on truth," she said. "We cannot both embrace the Big Lie and embrace the Constitution."
