The January 6 Capitol attack reverberated through the halls of Congress Wednesday as committees investigated what happened and a member of Republican leadership lost her job for telling the truth about it.
House Republicans gathered at 9 a.m. ET to decide the fate of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who incurred the wrath of her colleagues for refusing to absolve former President Donald Trump and his Republican allies for spreading the election fraud conspiracy theory. Minutes later, she was voted out.
With Congress still reeling from Cheney’s ouster, various committees grilled high-profile witnesses about the January 6 attack and the conditions that caused it.
