In an interview with NBC News Wednesday afternoon Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney discussed the events that took place at the U.S Capitol during the electoral college certification process. Representative Cheney said we have very deep and clear political differences in this country, but we don’t resolve those differences by mob violence and it doesn’t matter what side of those issues you stand on.
Cheney said that President Trump’s message in response to what happened at the U.S. Capitol was, in her view, completely inadequate. Cheney said what the President has done and what he caused here is something that we’ve never seen before in our history. It has been 245 years and no president has ever failed to concede or agree to leave office after the Electoral College has voted.
Cheney finished by saying what happened at the Capitol is the result of President Trump convincing people that somehow Congress was going to overturn the results of the election, a result of suggesting that he wouldn’t leave office. She said those are very, very dangerous things, and this will be remembered and this will be part of his legacy, and it is a dangerous moment for our country.
