As GOP Conference Chair, NY Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Firebrand) is already proving her worth, and showingwhyWY Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Egregious) was an abject failure, and why it was imperative shebe replacedin that role.
Stefanik issued a statement on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Cruella) decision to veto Rep. Jim Banks (R-Consistent) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Stalwart) from Pelosi’s January 6 Truth and Reconciliation/Trump Supporter Flaggelation Commission.
Mollie Hemingway outlines the incredible statement in a Twitter thread and prefaces it with three*fire*emojis:
Stefanik does not accept the premise or narrative being sold about this commission; she immediately calls it for what it is, and calls out Nancy Pelosi for her actions.
This is in stark contrast to Cheney’s lapdog demeanor, asreportedby my colleague Nick Arama.
There is no equivocation or parsing of Cheney’s words on this. Cheney fully stands with Pelosi and her lies, and fully dismisses, and maligns her party’s leadership. Cheney stands with Cheney mostly, but we know what that’s about.
Lord, save us from these family political dynasties!
Hemingway continues with more on Stefanik’s fiery statement:
For sure, if Jordan had remained on the commission, he would have brought up the questions that he, and Reps. Rodney Davis (R-Stand Up), Devin Nunes (R-Patriot), and James Comer (R-Liberty) sent to Pelosi in a letter way back inFebruary:
And, for sure, Jordan would be asking Pelosi questions about all that footage of the Capitol on January 6 that she refuses to release.
Pelosi didn’t want Jordan’s or Bank’s inquiring minds. Most of all, Pelosi doesn’t want the truth.
Hemingway concludes with Stefanik laying out Pelosi’s greatest fear—the American people demanding accountability from its elected leaders—and Stefanik’s demand that Pelosi be fired:
BOOM! Emojis are often overused or used in the wrong context, but that is not the case here. Stefanik calls truth to power, and brings the fire as well as the fight where it is needed. Stefanik also stands in solidarity with not just Minority Leader McCarthy (R-Doing Better), but with Reps. Jordan and Banks, and their right to be contrasting voices on this commission.
It appears the Republican House Caucus picked the right person for the job this time.
