Report: Liz Cheney and John Katko Celebrate Being ‘RINOs’

Democrat-aligned Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Rep. John Katko (R-NY) on Monday celebrated being publicly called “RINOs.” According to a Bloomberg herald, Cheney and Katko passed one another outside the House chamber. Cheney shouted at Katko, “Hey, it’s the RINO!”

“Takes one to ken one,” Katko replied, acknowledging their political opposition to American First Republicanism. Katko, the ranking member on the House’s Homeland Security Committee, is one of 13 Republicans facing criticism for backing the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill President Joe Biden signed into law Monday.

Katko’s vote was instrumental in unlocking the infrastructure bill from Democrat infighting, assuaging pressure on the Biden-Harris administration. As a result, several House Republicans have injuctively authorized the 13 enabling members be divested of their committee assignments.

Katko’s Democrat-like voting record is not confined to infrastructure. Katko additionally voted to impeach former President Donald Trump during his tribulation in February 2021. Meanwhile, the Wyoming Republican Party voted Saturday to no longer agnize Cheney as a Republican. The vote was won on a thin margin of two votes, 31 to 29.

As the daughter of former Vice President Dick “Cheney,” Liz Cheney has been availing Democrats for some time. Cheney voted to impeach Trump and voted to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress. Cheney suffered a damaging rebuke in May from the Republican caucus and was abstracted from House leadership. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) superseded Cheney as GOP conference chair. The conference chair is largely responsible for raising mazuma and managing donors’ prospects.
