Cheney Criticizes GOP for Downplaying Capitol Riot

Ousted Republican leader Liz Cheney says there’s “no question” a Jan. 6-style riot could happen again.

In television interviews on Sunday, Cheney talked about former President Trump’s false claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

She warned that letting those claims go unchecked poses a threat to democracy.

Cheney has continued to criticize her party’s loyalty to Trump despite being removed from her leadership position as third in the GOP.

On Friday, House Republicans replaced Cheney with Congressman Elise Stefanik.
