Republican member of the January 6 committee Liz Cheney, who voted against impeaching President Trump for the first time.
Because of his decision to delay military aid to Ukraine in exchange for dirt on his political opponents (including Joe Biden), had no regrets about her vote.
Cheney said on Sunday that in investigating the deadly Capitol attack that led to Trump’s second Senate trial, she is keeping in mind the lessons learned from that impeachment.
Together with the other Republican on the January 6 panel, Adam Kinzinger, Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump a second time for encouraging an insurrection.
Kinzinger has stated that he now regrets voting for Trump’s first impeachment in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Meet the Press, an NBC programme, recently interviewed Cheney, who was pressed on her vote against impeachment over Ukraine.

The Cheney family, which has been prominent in the Republican Party in Wyoming and Washington for decades, will not be represented in the legislature in 2019.
On Tuesday night, Harriet Hageman, a contender in the Republican primary, defeated Liz Cheney.
All primary polls showed Hageman, who had been endorsed by Trump, ahead of Cheney, thus the outcome wasn’t unexpected.
And Hageman’s campaign zeroed in on Cheney’s impeachment vote against Trump and subsequent decision to join the Jan. 6th committee looking into the attacks’ prelude.
Once the third-highest ranking Republican in the House, Cheney was demoted after she refused to distance herself from Trump, earning her a censure and subsequent removal from her position of power.
Because of the district’s prominence as a potential battlefield, it’s possible that Valadao’s neighbour McCarthy had some influence on Trump’s decision to skip this one.
While Biden carried the district by 10 points, Valadao narrowly took the seat back from the Democrats in 2020 with 51% of the vote.
The district has become more Democratic as a result of redistricting, increasing Valadao’s odds of being defeated in the upcoming election.
