As Republicans work to oust GOP Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) is complaining not only that Cheney voted to impeach former President Donald Trump but that her statements about Trump were unfair.

According to The Washington Examiner, Biggs, who is “one of the lawmakers responsible for kicking off the petition circulating the conference demanding she resign, told Fox News on Saturday that Cheney’s statement related to Trump’s impeachment is more problematic than her vote for the measure.”

“Well, it isn't necessarily because she voted for impeachment. I didn't like that. I didn't support that, obviously. But it's the way she did what she did. Besides that, she went out, and she is representing the entire conference, whether she says she is or isn't. And she puts out a statement, saying that what this president did is maybe one of the most heinous things in the history of the U.S. presidency,” Biggs said.

He added, “Her words were used over and over again when the Democrats were making their speeches on the floor of the House. And they will be used again when the Senate opens up another bogus trial in the Senate. That is what the problem is.”

Biggs has been accused of helping right-wing activist Ali Alexander with organizing the "Save America" rally that took place prior to the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6. Biggs' office has denied that he was involved.
