Liz Cheney Warns Critics Of Jan. 6 Investigation Exactly What To Expect
Lee Moran – February 11, 2022
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Thursday took a defiant stand against Republican critics of the House select committee investigating the U.S. Capitol riot.
“Those who do not wish the truth of Jan. 6 to come out have predictably resorted to attacking the process — claiming it is tainted and political,” Cheney wrote in a scathing Wall Street Journal op-ed headlined “The Jan. 6 Committee Won’t Be Intimidated.’”
“Our hearings will show this charge to be wrong,” Cheney said. “We are focused on facts, not rhetoric, and we will present those facts without exaggeration, no matter what criticism we face.”

Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) last week were censured by the Republican National Committee for sitting on the committee. The party sanction, which also declared the Jan. 6 violence “legitimate political discourse,” was even rebuked by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
