RNC Censures Cheney, Kinzinger As Pence Speaks Out

The Republican National Committee is formally censuring two GOP House members, Wyoming’s Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois over their work with the House committee investigating last year’s attack on the Capitol.  The resolution they adopted yesterday blasts both lawmakers for “participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.”  The move comes just as former Vice President Mike Pence is speaking out, breaking with ex-President Trump, and saying he had no constitutional authority to overturn the 2020 election results.  In Florida yesterday, Pence added that Trump was wrong to publicly criticize him for not trying to overturn the election results.
