George W. Bush Wades Into GOP Civil War as Matt Gaetz Stirs Wyoming Revolt

Former Republican President George W. Bush waded into the escalating GOP civil war over Donald Trump‘s impeachment on Friday, after Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz rallied to defeat Congresswoman Liz Cheney in her home state of Wyoming.

As the Republican party grapples with its future under President Joe Biden, the civil war has intensified after 10 House members voted in favor of impeaching Trump for allegedly inciting the deadly insurrection on January 6. Bush spoke out one day after Gaetz railed against Liz Cheney—the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney—the No. 3 Republican in the House who joined nine others in voting to impeach.
