Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, said her party can’t accept the “poison” of the idea that the 2020 election was stolen. She also said they shouldn’t “whitewash” the Capitol riot on January 6th and the former President’s role in inciting the violence. The Wyoming Congresswoman has been at odds with Trump since the insurrection, which has made her a target of the former President and his supporters. New York Times Foreign Affairs Columnist Thomas Friedman joins AC360 to discuss Cheney’s comments and says she’s “standing up for our democracy.” Plus, the family of Andrew Brown Jr. gathered at a church in Elizabeth City, North Carolina to remember his life and continued their calls for justice and accountability. Authorities have released few details about the fatal shooting of the 42-year-old, who was fatally shot by sheriff deputies when they were trying to execute a warrant. Brown family attorney Benjamin Crump gives Anderson Cooper an update on when the family will finally be able to see the full body camera video of the shooting.
