Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on House Republicans’ removal of Conference Chair Liz Cheney by voice vote:

“Congresswoman Liz Cheney is a leader of great courage, patriotism and integrity.  Today, House Republicans declared that those values are unwelcome in the Republican party.

“The Republican denial of the truth presented by Congresswoman Cheney is reflected in their denial of the need to seek the truth in a January 6th commission and to repair the damage of January 6th with a security supplemental immediately.

“For the sake of our democracy, reasonable Republicans across the country must take back their party.”
