Cheney says she will vote to impeach Trump – By Joshua Wolfson , Brandon Foster , Camille Erickson (Casper Star Tribune) / January 12, 2021
Rep. Liz Cheney said Tuesday she will vote to impeach President Donald Trump following last week’s attack at the U.S. Capitol by supporters of the president.
In a statement, Cheney said the president incited the mob that attacked the Capitol on Wednesday. Afterward, he could have “immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence,” but didn’t, she said.
“There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution,” she said in a statement.
Cheney becomes the highest-profile Republican to announce that she would support impeachment. She is the third-ranking Republican in the House.
