Former Vice President, Casper native, and Natrona County High School graduate Dick Cheney appeared alongside his daughter, Liz on Thursday to acknowledge the one-year anniversary of the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol; an attack that left 5 people dead.
"You know, we had over 60 courts in this country that ruled against the claims the former president was making, and yet he rejected those rulings and attempted to overturn the will of the people," Cheney said.
The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection is subpoenaing six more people who the panel says were involved in the organization and planning of rallies that aimed to overturn Donald Trump’s defeat in the 2020 presidential election.
"It appears that Fox News is giving Tucker Carlson a platform to spread the same type of lies that provoked violence on January 6," Cheney wrote on her personal Twitter page. "As Fox News knows, the election wasn't stolen and January 6 was not a 'false flag.'"
