Rep. Hoyer Praises Rep. Liz Cheney for Supporting Impeachment: ‘She Knows of What She Speaks’

‘This is the daughter of the former Republican whip and former vice president of the United States of America’

EXCERPT:

HOYER: “I want to reference the remarks of the chair of the Republican Conference, which is the analog to the democratic caucus. It is all the Republicans elected to the Congress of the United States and the House of Representatives. And they elected Liz Cheney, the daughter of the vice president of the United States. The former Whip of this House, Dick Cheney, with whom I served in the ‘80s. Representative Cheney from Wyoming, a conservative Republican, said this: The president of the United States summoned the mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack. That is not some irresponsible new member of the Congress of the United States. This is the daughter of the former Republican whip and former vice president of the United States of America. She knows of what she speaks. And she said this as well. There has never been a greater betrayal by a president of the United States of his office and his oath of Constitution -- to the Constitution. This is not, as Liz Cheney says, just some action. She characterizes it as the biggest betrayal of any president of the United States in our history.”
