Liz Cheney was removed from her position in Congress because she was running a different narrative than the Republicans want to push, according to US Studies Centre CEO Simon Jackman who appeared on Sky News.

“What I think you’re seeing is an effort to consolidate the Republican Party (for) what’s going to be their strategy for those 2022 elections,” he said.

“The Republicans are going to be thinking of this base election, Democrat turnout is not going to be as high as it was when the presidency was at stake and the voices that are splitting the Republican Party at the moment need to be silenced.”
