Rep. Liz Cheney blamed Trump directly for the storming of the capitol that took place earlier today.
“What he has done and what he has caused here is something that we’ve never seen before in our history,” Cheney said “It’s been 245 years, and no president has ever failed to concede or agree to leave office after the Electoral College has voted, and I think what we are seeing today is the result of that, the result of convincing people that somehow Congress was going to overturn the results of this election, the results of suggesting that he wouldn’t leave office.”
“Those are very, very dangerous things, and he will be remembered, this will be part of his legacy, and it is a dangerous moment for the country,” she added.

Earlier in the day, during his speech, Trump slammed Rep. Liz Cheney directly, saying “we’ve got to get rid of the weak Congress-people. The ones that aren’t any good — the Liz Cheneys of the world.”
