Matt Gaetz Addresses Crowd Gathered at Wyoming Capitol to Protest Against Liz Cheney

Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz spoke at a rally against Rep Liz Cheney outside the state capitol building in Cheyenne, Wyoming, on Thursday, January 28, criticizing her vote to impeach ex-President Donald Trump.

Cheney, a Republican who has represented Wyoming’s at-large district since 2017, has come under fire from some constituents and fellow GOP members for failing to back Trump in the impeachment vote and speaking out against his false “stolen election” claims. Trump loyalists such as Gaetz, Rep Matt Rosendale, and Rep Bob Good have called for her removal from the position of Republican Conference Chair.
