Liz Cheney Fires Back At Mike Pence

The January 6 select committee, Liz Cheney and Mike Pence are arguing back and forth regarding the January 6 committee and whether or not Pence's description of their actions is accurate.

"The Jan. 6 committee countered former Vice President Mike Pence's disparagement of the panel as 'partisan,' insisting that it 'respectfully' engaged with him," reported Washington Examiner.

"While ripping his description as 'not accurate,' Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and Vice Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) also commended his actions on the day of the Jan. 6 riot," Washington Examiner reported.

Cheney Takes Shots At Pence

"Pence made his remarks during an interview tour promoting his new book and ruled out testifying before the panel due to the separation of powers concerns," reported Washington Examiner.

"The Select Committee has proceeded respectfully and responsibly in our engagement with Vice President Pence, so it is disappointing that he is misrepresenting the nature of our investigation while giving interviews to promote his new book," Thompson and Cheney argued in a joint statement.

The Jan. 6 committee doubled down on its praise of Pence.

"The Select Committee has consistently praised the former Vice President’s refusal to bow to former President Trump’s pressure to illegally refuse to count electoral votes on January 6th. But his recent statements about the Select Committee are not accurate," the panel said in a tweet.

"Pence later stood by his remarks in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, underscoring that 'it’s not the first sharp elbow I’ve gotten on Capitol Hill,'" reported Washington Examiner.
