What happened was even worse. The Republican members of Congress decided to hug both women and make room for Greene's craziness while allowing Cheney to vote her conscience on Trump. Liz Cheney survived with only 61 votes against her. Those were the never-surrender Trumpist acolytes who intend to punish any Republican who fails to offer loyalty to the ex-president. Greene for her part got a standing ovation, we hear, apparently for saying she was sorry for the trouble she'd caused everyone else. But no apology, in true Trumpist form. “I won’t back down. I’ll never apologize,” she tweeted Saturday.
So it's up to the Democrats to strip Greene of her committees, and they will, we trust, later today.
