Washington – This afternoon, Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) joined NBC News to discuss the events that took place at the U.S Capitol today during the electoral college certification process. The full video of her interview is available here and see an excerpt of her comments below:

REP. CHENEYWe have very deep and clear political differences in this country, but we don’t resolve those differences by mob violence. It doesn’t matter what side of those issues you stand on. The President of the United States’ statement now, in my view, was completely inadequate – what he has done and what he caused here is something that we’ve never seen before in our history. It has been 245 years and no president has ever failed to concede or agree to leave office after the Electoral College has voted. I think what we’re seeing today is a result of that –  a result of convincing people that somehow Congress was going to overturn the results of this election, a result of suggesting he wouldn’t leave office. Those are very, very dangerous things. This will be remembered and this will be part of his legacy, and it is a dangerous moment for our country.”
