Liz Cheney's relationship with House Republicans was already strained. That didn't stop her from calling out Kevin McCarthy in a striking way yesterday.

BySteve BenenAfter House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) rejected two of the House GOP selections for the Jan. 6 investigatory committee, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) issued a furious statement in response. Republican lawmakers,,"will not be party to [Pelosi's] sham process."

The point of the comment, of course, was to signalof the House special select committee. But it was not entirely correct:mostRepublicans will not be a party to the process, but one high-profile House GOP member seems more than willing to participate in the probe.

Indeed, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) stood on the Capitol steps yesterday anddelivered stinging commentsto reporters about the examination into January's insurrectionist riot."[A]t every opportunity, the Minority Leader has attempted to prevent the American people from understanding what happened -- to block this investigation. Today, the Speaker objected to two Republican members. She accepted three others. She objected to two, one of whom may well be a material witness to events that led to that day -- that led to January 6th. The other, who disqualified himself by his comments in particular over the last 24 hours demonstrating that he is not taking this seriously. He is not dealing with the facts of this investigation, but rather viewed it as a political platform."
