Rep. Liz Cheney: Republicans must choose between the truth and Trump
In a new op-ed in the Washington Post, Rep. Liz Cheney says the Republican Party is at a “turning point” and must choose between the truth and Trump’s 2020 election lies. The No. 3 House Republican called out the House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy for “changing his story” on Trump’s responsibility in inciting the violence on January 6th. Former Republican Congresswoman Mia Love tells Anderson Cooper she doesn’t understand why other Republicans aren’t embracing Cheney and the truth. Plus, allies of Rudy Giuliani have been calling on former President Trump and Republicans to pay for the former New York City mayor’s efforts around the 2020 election, and help subsidize his mounting legal fees. Former federal prosecutor Elie Honig joins AC360 to discuss the Giuliani investigation and says in his experience the two most common reasons people decide to cooperate with prosecutors are time and money.
