Cheney warned U.S. Capitol riots could not be 'minimized or trivialized'

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney said the GOP must "make clear that we aren't the party of white supremacy."

Cheney warned that the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6 could not be "minimized or trivialized."

During an interview with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Institute, Cheney addressed the Capitol siege, saying:

"It's very important for us to ignore the temptation to look away."

"It's very important, especially for us as Republicans, to make clear that we aren't the party of white supremacy," she added.

"You saw symbols of Holocaust denial, for example, at the Capitol that day."

"You saw the Confederate flag being carried through the rotunda, and I think we, as Republicans, in particular, have a duty and an obligation to stand against that, to stand against insurrection," Cheney continued.

Last month, Cheney saw her popularity plummet after she voted to impeach President Donald Trump.

She also blasted Trump in her remarks.

According to The Hill's dictation, Cheney said:

"[It's] incumbent upon everybody who takes an oath of office and swears to protect and defend the Constitution that we recognize what happened on Jan. 6, that we commit ourselves that it must never happen again, that we recognize the damage that was done by the president, President Trump, saying that somehow the election was stolen, making those claims for months and summoning the mob and provoking them then in the attack on the Capitol.

"And also, and very importantly, in refusing, despite multiple requests from people to ask him to stop what was happening to ask him to stop the violence to protect the Capitol to protect the counting of electoral votes — he didn't do so."

Cheney also attacked Trump's "America First" foreign policy arguing his ideas behind his agenda were "just as dangerous today as they were in 1940 when isolationists launched the America First movement to appease Hitler and prevent America from aiding Britain in the fight against the Nazis," The New York Times reported.

She added:

"Isolationism was wrong and dangerous then, and it is wrong and dangerous now."

Despite Cheney's voted to impeach Trump, the Senate trial ended in an acquittal, with the split upper chamber voting 57-43 in favor of conviction.

Earlier this month, Cheney said Trump does “not have a role as the leader of our party going forward.”

“Somebody who has provoked an attack on the United States Capitol to prevent the counting of electoral votes, which resulted in five people dying, who refused to stand up immediately when he was asked to stop the violence, that is a person who does not have a role as the leader of our party going forward.”
