Cheney: I Will Vote To Impeach The President
Washington - Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference
Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) released the following statement ahead of votes in
the House this week:
"On January 6, 2021 a violent mob attacked the United States Capitol to
obstruct the process of our democracy and stop the counting of
presidential electoral votes. This insurrection caused injury, death and
destruction in the most sacred space in our Republic.
"Much more will become clear in coming days and weeks, but what we
know now is enough. The President of the United States summoned this
mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that
followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the
President. The President could have immediately and forcefully
intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a
greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his
oath to the Constitution.
"I will vote to impeach the President."
