Transcript for GOP House leader caught on hot mic blasting Cheney
We go to Washington and the battle is breaking out inside the Republican party leadership. Liz Cheney under fire from fellow Republicans for refusing to back president trump's false claims about the election. House GOP leader Kevin Mccarthy complained about her on a hot mic fueling calls for her ouster and Rachel Scott has all the latest. Reporter: Good morning. This is the clear sign yet that her days in party leadership could be numbered. House Republican leader Kevin Mccarthy saying flat out he's had it with congresswoman Liz Cheney. Overnight house Republican leader Kevin Mccarthy caught on a hot mic making it clear he lost confidence in congresswoman Liz Cheney. I think she's got real I've had it with her. I've lost confidence. Reporter: That audio obtained by the daily caller and comes just 24 hours after blasting president trump. Cheney tweeting this, the 2020 election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading the big lie, turning their back on the rule of law and poisoning our democratic system. It's not the first time Cheney has taken on trump. She was the highest ranking Republican that voted to impeach accusing the former president of provoking the mob that stormed the capitol on January 6th. And she's faced fierce backlash for it. Few in the party have come to her defense. Senator Mitt Romney who voted to convict trump tweeting his support saying every person of conscience draws a line beyond which they will not go. Liz Cheney refuses to lie. And Cheney's office telling me that this comes down to one thing, whether the Republican party will continue to push lies about the 2020 election, Michael, she is not backing down. Definitely not, Rachel. Thank you so much.
