(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) put out a statement on Wednesday praising Rep. Liz Cheney (R.-Wyo.) after the House Republican Conference voted to remove Cheney as their chairwoman.

“Congresswoman Liz Cheney is a leader of great courage, patriotism and integrity,” said Pelosi.

“Today, House Republicans declared that those values are unwelcome in the Republican party,” she said.

“The Republican denial of the truth presented by Congresswoman Cheney is reflected in their denial of the need to seek the truth in a January 6th commission and to repair the damage of January 6th with a security supplemental immediately,” said Pelosi.

“For the sake of our democracy, reasonable Republicans across the country must take back their party,” she said.

Here is the full text of Pelosi’s statement:
