WATCH: Cheney says “It’s very important…as Republicans, to make clear that we aren’t the party of white supremacy”

Speaking at a virtual Reagan institute event Tuesday, Rep. Liz Cheney said “it’s very important, especially for us as Republicans, to make clear that we aren’t the party of white supremacy.”

Cheney supported a 9/11-style commission to look into the U.S. Capitol riot, saying “certainly the potential of a 9/11-style commission, I think that is very important. I think there are many aspects of what happened on the 6th and in the days and weeks and months leading up to it that have to be investigated.”

“It’s very important, especially for us as Republicans, to make clear that we aren’t the party of white supremacy,” she added. “You certainly saw anti-Semitism. You saw the symbols of Holocaust denial, for example, at the Capitol that day. You saw a Confederate flag being carried through the Rotunda. And I think we as Republicans, in particular, have a duty and an obligation to stand against that, to stand against insurrection.”
