Republican minority leader Kevin McCarthy tries to kill off revenge plot against Liz Cheney for voting to impeach Donald Trump as party is torn apart over trial

Kevin McCarthy said Thursday that he would not support an effort from Republican lawmakers to push out Representative Liz Cheney from her leadership position in the House. 'Do you want Liz Cheney to remain as conference chair or no?' a reporter asked McCarthy during his weekly conference on Thursday. The Minority leader simply shot back: 'Yes.' Cheney, who represents Wyoming and serves as GOP conference chairwoman, is facing extraordinary clapback from her own party after she became the highest ranking Republican to vote for impeaching Donald Trump earlier this month. But McCarthy says she should remain in her post. Many of Trump's House allies are circulating a petition demanding a vote to call on Cheney to resign.

Some people stop receiving benefits when they find work, and for others the benefits expire. For the week

A bust of Cesar Chavez, the labor leader and civil rights activist, is nestled among an array of framed family photos displayed on a desk behind the new president. Busts of Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt and Robert F. Kennedy also feature.   A dark blue rug has been brought out of storage to replace a lighter colored one installed by former President Donald Trump.  Also gone are Trump's gold curtains, replaced with darker shade of gold that hung when Bill Clinton was president.  As has the portrait of controversial former president Andrew Jackson, America's first populist president, which was hung by Trump.  Jackson was known to have built his personal fortune with slave labor while his time in o
