WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Liz Cheney says she was wrong to oppose gay marriage in the past, a stand that once split her family.Cheney, R-Wyo., a fierce critic of fellow Republican Donald Trump, also tells CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that she views her reelection campaign as the most important House race in the nation as forces aligned with the former president try to unseat her. She voted to impeach Trump over his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

In the interview aired Sunday night, Cheney said she had little affection for President Joe Biden, who she believes has embraced harmful polices for the economy and national security with the Afghanistan withdrawal. “But the alternative cannot be a man who doesn’t believe in the rule of law, and who violated his oath of office,” Cheney said.

The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney was an ascendant Republican leader before the Jan. 6 riot, yet she is increasingly defined by her public opposition to Trump and his hold on the GOP. Cheney, 55, noted that she still talks with her father every night and that they share the same views on rejecting Trump. headtopics.com

ADVERTISEMENTLiz Cheney famously broke with her family in 2013 by opposing gay marriage ahead of a failed Senate bid. Her objections caused a rift with her sister, Mary, a married lesbian. Mary’s spouse, Heather Poe, posted on Facebook that year that Cheney’s position was offensive and that “I always thought freedom meant freedom for EVERYONE.”

In the interview, Cheney said her opposition to gay marriage was misguided and she channeled her sister-in-law’s Facebook post in explaining why she changed her position.“I was wrong. I was wrong,” she said. “It’s a very personal issue — and very personal for my family. I believe that my dad was right. And my sister and I have had that conversation ... Freedom means freedom for everybody.”

While still opposed to gun control, abortion and the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare,” the Wyoming congresswoman finds herself on the outs for voting to impeach Trump after his Jan. 6 rally preceded a mob storming the Capitol in hopes of overturning his reelection loss to Biden. Trump continues to falsely claim election fraud in spite of results being certified by states and Republican election officials and courts rejecting dozens of legal challenges.

After voting to impeach Trump, Cheney lost her leadership post as chair of the House Republican Conference. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi put her on a nine-person committee to investigate the Jan. 6 assault and she serves as vice chair.Trump has vowed to defeat Cheney in next year’s primary election by backing Republican Harriet Hageman, an attorney. Cheney, seeking a fourth term, said nothing less than the authority of the Constitution is at stake. headtopics.com

ADVERTISEMENT“I think it’s going to be the most important House race in the country in 2022. And — and it will be one where people do have the opportunity to say, ‘We want to stand for the Constitution,’” Cheney said. “A vote against me in this race, a vote for whomever Donald Trump has endorsed, is a vote for somebody who’s willing to perpetuate the big lie, somebody who’s willing to put allegiance to Trump above allegiance to the Constitution, absolutely.”

The Wyoming congresswoman criticized House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy of California for sticking with Trump after the assault on the Capitol.“What he’s done is embrace Donald Trump,” she said. “And if I were doing what he’s doing, I would be deeply ashamed of myself. I don’t know how you explain that to your children. When you are in a situation where you have somebody who did what Donald Trump did, it is absolutely clear he cannot continue to be somebody you embrace.”

She was wrong on gay rights She was wrong about Trump She is wrong about voting rights and She’s wrong about women’s rights RepLizCheney is wrong a lot. Liz Cheney, I am a 63 year old white make Republican. I am proud you are also a Republican. I hope you continue to represent your state. God Bless. Head up.

Guess she intends to run for president in ‘24 schnerder So Liz Chain!!!!!!🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥👏🙌💯🤟🏻🤟🏻 I see the effort to make Liz Cheney a liberal icon is in full swing this morning. There's always a change of mindset when it affects your family! And it shouldn't have to come to that! That's great, Liz! ...now follow that up with demonstrable actions that meaningfully benefit the LGBTQ+ community to show us all that you're serious.

Typical Republican, can only value other peoples freedoms when it affects her own family

Liz Cheney Needles Trump For Bashing Bush: ‘I Like Republican Presidents Who Win Re-Election’The Jan. 6 committee member is one of five Republican lawmakers Trump is targeting with a primary challenge. ☺ Yeah, and that second term of his was a real victory lapper, wasn’t it, Liz? f'lizcheney

Better late than never. And then she voted against fair voting access for all. Not buying into it RepLizCheney, a pretense of compassion and a lifetime of party line votes isn't fooling anyone. SHE is what the REPUBLICON party should be..honest, loyal and AMERICAN. Too late. Backed the wrong horse and lost. Next.

Now she’s going to start calling her Thems 🤣🤣🤣 I was a good German I don’t give a damn about others; sexual preference, religion, race, nationality, or if they put ketchup on a hot dog. Not my business and it doesn’t affect me at all. Liz Chaney should’ve had the same mindset the day she was sworn into Congress.

VoteBlue2022 She voted against the Equality Act just a few months ago.

Nobody gives a shit about finally getting something right a decade after the fact. She has a basket load of bad policy ideas to make amends for I don't care for politicians in general, but part of a well-lived life is learning, growing, adapting, changing. I hope she continues to expand her views. We need visible, self-aware leaders with values closer to mainstream Americans.

All I hear is “I’m running for President in 2024.” Lest we forget and... This is the same Liz Cheney who opposed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and only rolls over when it something that directly impacts her. Just like she should have used her voice to vote for others Freedom and instead silenced others freedom for a party!

But she’s against voting rights! When did Liz_Cheney suddenly get religion? How'd she suddenly end up on 60Minutes? What's she selling? Oh nevermind What about voter suppression or anything that will help people who are less fortunate She doesn't give a crap about that Lame Duck Walking.

Now just imagine what else you’re wrong about too, Lizzie RepLizCheney … what a long list that might be. And while you take your sweet time to change your mind, people continue to suffer under R policies… Sometimes “told you so” doesn’t feel all that good. 'Freedom for me, but not for thee.' In February, Liz Cheney voted against the Equality Act..

Does anyone else suspect she's a dark horse for POTUS? Now do the 20 year war you got rich from. Well whatever is today’s politically correct thing to say Democrat Liz Cheney goes on Democrat 60 Minutes for a friendly interview? Unsurprising. Cheney has no view on this issue other than she thought it would benefit her to throw her sister under the bus when she was running for her House seat & now she doesn't. Same as her view on trump, she thinks it will help her take power in the long run & do the same things he did.

But just not allowing certain people their right vote, kind of freedom, Liz? Lizzy is drawing at straws. She’s soon to lose her position as the Wyoming congressman. Her day has come and gone when she turned on Trump. Lizzy you chose the wrong horse to ride.,,MAGA 🇺🇸🇺🇸 Yet her and her Republican colleague vote against voting rights

Liz, thanks for your dad and President Bush. But time for you to give way to the present. We long time Republican workers like Trump and the fact he was his own man not bought off by worldwide special interests. RepLizCheney Liz knows the R’s are coming for the gays after they outlaw abortion

I hope that she will apply her realization that she can be wrong to other matters. For example, women should have the freedom to make their own medical and moral choices It would be a good thing if she learned more about abortion. It is also wrong for her to continue to help the left. Better late then never. Glad to see she has opened her mind

Good. Frankly, I have more respect for people who change their position when it's politically convenient than the hardline extremists who supported gay marriage when it was a controversial, divisive issue, which in turn led to two terms of George W. Bush. Love me I'm a liberal. She said waterboarding isn't torture

So this should mean she supports the Voting Rights Act and a Woman's Right to Choose. Rehab Road, here comes Liz. GOP are running the way back machine WHITE POWER STRAIGHT POWER MALE POWER They miss it Okay Liz, age has been kinder to your thought processing. I’m here for that! Liz Cheney is fooling no one. 60minutes and the ap need to stop. Liz has been voting against the Equality Act and other things that are for anti-discrimination this year

Always amusing that CONservatives, certainly of a certain hue only know something is an issue when it affects them personally. 🤔 Can't wait for someone in her family marry someone black for her to understand racism is a thing. She's doing this to win some liberal votes too 🤣 So RepLizCheney, does that mean you will vote against the numerous state laws that allow healthcare providers to DENY services to the LGBT community? Equal Human Rights means Rights for Everyone!

Opposing gay Marriage is dumb as hell. Stupid Christians with their dumbass beliefs. We need a lot more of this in this country. This is brave. It is OK to admit you were wrong and openly discriminatory. And to be better. And do better by example. GOP are running the way back machine WHITE POWER STRAIGHT POWER MALE POWER They miss it

Breaking: Liz Cheney becomes a Democrat as she learns about how terrible the values of Republicans are I’m glad she is taking on Trump and the insurrection he organized, however she didn’t vote for 2 voting rights bills. That also defines her as not wanting to have fair elections and supporting voter suppression laws.

Who cares? She’s not being re-elected. She’ll have plenty of time to volunteer for LGTBQ causes docrocktex26 Wonder if she would have ever figured out that her bigotry was wrong if her sister wasn't gay?

Once again a republican only changes their mind when something impacts them. She'll still screw over brown and black people on voting rights cause that will never hurt her or her family. Hoo-ray hoo-rah. Maybe ten years from now she’ll entertain the idea that every citizen deserves to vote. Cheney no longer opposes 🏳️‍🌈 marriage? 🤨 W...t...f... is happening 🤯🤪

Not the first politician to lose her values 🤭 She at least has the guts to admit she made a mistake. And 20 years from now she'll admit she was wrong to oppose all the shit she opposes now. 🙄 Hummm, a politician who can change and apologize. RARE! It's only wrong for Republicans when it happens to someone in their family.

Everyone including pregnant women?

Changing your stance on an issue after learning more & admitting you were wrong is called growing. Even if it took a personal family issue to open your mind, at least you were willing to grow & change. Since you have the platform you do, please use it to help others. Thank you. Her political time is numbered thank god!

The Wyoming congresswoman also discussed how she finds herself at odds with many GOP colleagues after she voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump following his Jan. 6 rally, and the deadly Capitol riot that followed.
