A Firm Ground By Liz Cheney
Liz Cheney gave a statement holding Trump responsible for the Capitol riot and the deaths that took place on the day. She openly said that Trump has summoned his supporters there and did not take any action to stop the attack and violence.
She considers this to be a huge betrayal by the President of the US towards his oath and office.
The voting process for the impeachment will be taking place on Wednesday where Trump has been charged for the incitement of attack. This is the very first time in the history of the US that a president is being impeached twice.
Although, thus far, the members of the Republican Party are divided over this decision and blaming Trump for the attack.
Liz Cheney is the daughter of Dick Cheney, an ex-Vice President. She has had several disagreements with Trump earlier regarding various issues concerning the welfare of the nation.
