GOP Rep. Liz Cheney defended House Speaker’s decision to boot Reps. Jordan and Banks from the Jan. 6th committee.
“She rejected 2,” Cheney said. “One who may be a material witness to events that lead to that day… the other who disqualified himself by his comments over the last 24 hours demonstrating he’s not taking this seriously”
Rep. Cheney then ripped McCarthy, saying “The rhetoric we have heard from the minority leader is disingenuous… at every opportunity, the minority leader has attempted to prevent the American people from understanding what happened.”
“Any person who would be third in line to the presidency must demonstrate a commitment to the constitution and a commitment to the rule of law, and Minority Leader McCarthy has not done that,” she also said.
Cheney was widely applauded by Democrats.
