The chairman of the House Republican Conference pushed against Cheney’s claims during an appearance on Fox News.
“And when it comes to Liz Cheney, she’s a Pelosi Republican, a Pelosi pawn at this point. She doesn’t represent the Republican conference, or Republican voters, or American citizens,” Stefanik said.

He continued, “Republicans are committed to facts. We are not committed to protecting the speaker of the House, who is a lame-duck speaker. We want truth, accountability and we want to make sure the U.S. Capitol is safe as the home of people and that the violence on January 6 will not be repeated. ”
