Washington – Wyoming Congresswoman and House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) joined “The Guy Benson Show” this afternoon and talked about how Speaker Nancy Pelosi is causing damage to the country by focusing on partisanship instead of coming together across party lines during this time. Listen to the full interview here, and see an excerpt of the transcript below:
GUY BENSON: Pelosi then, just a few days later, said we are rolling out this select committee, she called it bipartisan and she framed it as oversight for the huge relief bill. She put Jim Clyburn in charge of it. It seems like a political move, especially given what Adam Schiff had to say. I wonder what your reaction was to that and the extent to which House Republicans plan to cooperate with whatever this thing is going to be?
REP. LIZ CHENEY: I just think Guy, that it is really sad for the country that at this moment which, if there were ever a time when we ought to be coming together across party lines, the House of Representatives is led by Speaker Pelosi. Her initial and immediate reaction to everything is partisanship and to attack the President and attack the Administration, and it’s really damaging for the country. I think you’ve seen multiple oversight entities that have been created both by the legislation that we’ve passed as well as already existing
REP. CHENEY: I think that the American people want to see the economy get going again, they want to see us be able to unleash the kind of innovation that we have in this country in the private sector to find the therapeutics, to develop the vaccine, to defeat the virus which we all can, but we got to work together. Frankly, Speaker Pelosi didn’t have any credibility to lose, but what she’s doing now is wasting really valuable time and really valuable resources. When she insists on appropriating money for the National Endowment of the Arts, tens of millions of dollars right now for things like that.
BENSON: Changing election laws?
REP. CHENEY: Yes, exactly. And those are all things that are fundamentally, ultimately damaging for the nation, and she ought to quit it.
