The chair of the conservative House Freedom Caucus on Thursday called on Rep. Liz Cheney to step down as head of the House Republican Conference after her latest blast at former President Donald Trump.

The call came just a day after Cheney contradicted Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Trump’s place in the GOP, declaring, “I don’t believe that he should be playing a role in the future of the party or the country.”

“That was one of the most outrageous statements, but it's consistent with at least four other statements she's made in the last few weeks,” railed Freedom Caucus head Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., The Hill reported.

“As you know, some of us in this group led a charge to remove Ms. Cheney as the chairwoman leader of the Republican conference. I do not believe she is able to carry that out any further.”

“I also think she's absolutely devoid of any kind of political reading of what's going on in the Republican Party in this country right now,” he added.

“My guess is there's probably no room in the party for somebody who takes the positions that Ms. Cheney does and that makes the accusations that she does. She should step down — if she had any sense of shame, she would step down.”

Cheney’s previous criticisms of Trump also sparked backlash from conservative lawmakers who attempted to oust her from her leadership role earlier this month. Instead, she kept her position in a 145-61 vote among House Republicans.
