SEATTLE (AP) — Rep. Jamie Herrera Beutler, one of 10 Republican U.S. House members who voted to impeach Donald Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, says she will vote to retain Rep. Liz Cheney in Republican leadership.

Cheney, who also voted to impeach the former president, is expected to be ousted from her position this week.

A spokesman for Beutler told The Seattle Times in an email she would vote to keep Cheney in leadership.

Beutler represents the 3rd Congressional District in southwest Washington.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has set a Wednesday vote for removing Cheney from her No. 3 Republican leadership post.
