Liz Cheney says the Capitol riot investigation 'threatens' GOP lawmakers because they 'played a role

they should not have been playing'

Rep. Liz Cheney said some of her Republican colleagues in Congress are opposed to a bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6 Capitol riot because they helped provoke the attack or are otherwise culpable.

Cheney, who was ousted from leadership by her own party on Wednesday, has repeatedly called for a bipartisan commission comprising retired officials with subpoena power to investigate the attack on the Capitol. But GOP leadership and many other lawmakers are opposed to a commission solely focused on the deadly assault. Instead, they want to expand the focus to include violence that resulted from Black Lives Matter protests last summer.

"There is real concern among a number of members of my own party about a January 6 commission," Cheney said. "That kind of intense, narrow focus threatens people in my party who may have been playing a role they should not have been playing."

Cheney said there's no legitimate reason for lawmakers to oppose the proposed commission, and added that Congress has created similar commissions to investigate other attacks, including 9/11, President John F. Kennedy's assassination, and the Pearl Harbor bombing.
