In a meeting on Capitol Hill, Republican members of Congress voted to keep Rep. Liz Cheney in caucus leadership following her vote to impeach President Donald Trump last month.

Cheney was among 10 Republican members who voted to impeach Trump, who at the time was in his final days in office.

Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the Republican caucus remains behind Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene following videos documenting her past support for a range of conspiracy theories.

Democrats on the House Rules Committee voted earlier on Wednesday to remove Greene from serving on committees. McCarthy blasted Democrats for attempting to bar Greene from serving on the Education and Budget Committees.
