Ten House Republicans voted to impeach President Trump in the wake of January 6th —and he’s going after all of them.
According to a report from The New York Post, Trump celebrated his endorsed winners on TRUTH Social on Wednesday, saying “[e]very single endorsed by Trump candidate won last night, by big margins, with the exception of one very long shot who did FAR better than anticipated against an incumbent.”
But Trump was particularly pleased with the ousting of Rep. Tim Rice (R-SC), the incumbent in South Carolina who voted to impeach him after last year’s Capitol riot.
“The ‘Impeacher’ was ousted without even a runoff. A GREAT night!,” added the former president, referring to Rep. Tom Rice’s defeat in the Palmetto State’s 7th District by state Rep. Russell Fry, according to the Post.

“Same thing’s going to happen in Wyoming to Virginia ‘resident’ Liz Cheney, that happened in South Carolina to Congressman ‘Impeach Master’ Tom Rice, who lost as an incumbent by 28 points!,” he said.
“To me she is nothing less than a war criminal who has done a TERRIBLE job for the Great State of Wyoming!,” Trump continued.
Cheney, who also voted to impeach the 45th president last year, is trailing in the polls against Trump-supported Harriet Hageman in Wyoming’s Republican House primary.
