The GOP is getting torn apart by a spreading revolt against party leaders for failing to stand up for former President Trump and punish his critics. …
Step into almost every Republican state or district, and most voters are livid that Republican leaders didn’t fight more to overturn the election, resist impeachment, back Trump, punish House Conference Chair Liz Cheney and protest big business for blacklisting its members.

- The 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump are being hit with swift punishment, including brewing primary challenges, censure votes and public scoldings, the N.Y. Times reports (subscription).
