Gaetz accused Cheney, the third-ranking House GOP member, of working behind the scenes and in public against President Trump, making the charges on Twitter and on his podcast. .
"I do not believe that Liz Cheney is the right person to lead the House Republican Conference into this upcoming November election," Gaetz said in a podcast exclusively obtained by The Hill in advance of its release.
Gaetz, along with Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), Chip Roy (R-Texas), Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) got into an argument with Cheney during the conference meeting.
"Jim Jordan, my colleague, my mentor, my friend made the case strongly that Liz Cheney is hurting President Trump," Gaetz said on his podcast.
