Liz Cheney Should Be Heralded for Her January 6th Committee Work

Mike Sozan discusses the role that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is playing in the ongoing January 6 investigation.

These days, many proud progressives find themselves doing the once-unthinkable: heralding the work of staunch conservative Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. Cheney’s bipartisan co-leadership of the House’s Select Committee to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol illustrates the importance of a politically diverse alliance to protect future elections and democracy.

For over a month, Americans have been riveted by the committee’s hearings. Led by former career prosecutors, the committee’s thorough investigation has revealed compelling evidence that former president Donald Trump led a wide-ranging conspiracy to overturn the 2020 presidential election result, even though top aides repeatedly, and accurately, told him that Joe Biden had lawfully won.
