House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Thursday that she had selected GOP Rep. Liz Cheney to serve on the select committee that will investigate the January 6 riots at the Capitol.
We’re very honored and proud that she has agreed to serve on the committee,’ said Pelosi at her news conference.
Cheney, who was not attending Pelosi’s press conference, said in a statement that she was “honored to have been named to serve.”
“Congress is obligated to conduct a full investigation of the most serious attack on our Capitol since 1814,” continued Cheney. “What happened on January 6th can never happen again.”
