Pelosi taps Cheney for Jan. 6 select committee

By | July 1, 2021

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced that GOP Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming will serve on the Democrat-led investigation of the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

“We are very honored and proud she has agreed to serve on the committee,” Pelosi said at a press conference alongside several other Democratic lawmakers she is naming to the select panel.

Cheney, who recently lost her leadership post over her vocal criticism of former President Donald Trump, was one of two Republicans who voted to establish the panel this week.
