Cheney Takes Aim At Gop In Washington Dc Speech

Wyoming at-large US Representative Liz Cheney fired criticism Monday at members of the republican party during a speech in Washington DC. During her remarks at the American Enterprise Institute, Cheney warned of elected officials eroding democracy by ignoring or minimizing the violence of the January 6th capitol riot.

“The elected leaders of the republican party downplay the violence of January 6, and they demand that all others do the same. This has become a litmus test. It’s as if the hundreds of serious injuries to capitol police officers who defended our capital that day were inconsequential.”
