Watch her full statement here and see a transcript of her remarks below:
REP. LIZ CHENEY: “Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman.
“Mr. Chairman, I would like to thank all of our witnesses today. And I’d also like to, in particular, wish Mr. Stepien and his family all the best on the arrival of a new baby.
“Today’s hearing, Mr. Chairman, was very narrowly focused, and in the coming days you will see the Committee move on to President Trump’s broader planning for January 6th, including his plan to corrupt the Department of Justice, and his detailed planning, with lawyer John Eastman, to pressure the Vice President, State Legislatures, State Officials and others to overturn the election.
“Let me leave you today with one clip, to preview what you will see in one of our hearings to come. This is the testimony of White House lawyer, Eric Herschmann. John Eastman called Mr. Herschmann the day after January 6th, and here is how that conversation went:
I said to him, “are you out of your f–ing mind?” All right. I said, “I only want to hear two words coming out of your mouth for now on – ‘orderly transition.’”
“Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I yield back.”
