Cheney named January 6 riots committee vice chair

The United States House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on Capitol Hill announced on Thursday it has named Republican Liz Cheney, Wyoming's at-large district Representative, as its Vice Chairwoman.

"Her leadership and insights have shaped the early work of the select committee, and this appointment underscores the bipartisan nature of this effort," Committee Chair Bennie Thompson stated.

Cheney, who represents Wyoming's at-large district in the lower chamber, was removed from the post of House Republican Conference Chair over her criticism of former President Donald Trump and his handling of the aforementioned protests.
