Democrats promote Cheney to vice chairwoman of Jan. 6 panel
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats have promoted Republican Rep. Liz Cheney to vice chairwoman of a committee investigating the January 6 Capitol incident.
The Democrats placed the Wyoming congresswoman in a leadership spot on the panel Thursday as some Republicans were threatening to oust her from the GOP conference for participating. Cheney is a fierce critic of former President Donald Trump and has remained defiant amid the criticism from her own party. Cheney has insisted Congress must probe the Capitol incident.
