We have to recognize what it means for the nation to have a former president who has not conceded and who continues to suggest that our electoral system cannot function, cannot do the will of the people. — Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming)

Rep. Liz Cheney, who was just ousted from House GOP leadership, says she now regrets voting for Trump in 2020
  • Liz Cheney told ABC News she now regrets her vote for Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
  • "It was a vote based on policy ... in terms of the kinds of policies he put forward," she said.
  • Cheney criticized House Republicans for ousting her to promote Rep. Elise Stefanik to leadership.
"I was never going to support [President] Joe Biden and I do regret the vote," Cheney told ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl. "It was a vote based on policy, based on substance and in terms of the kinds of policies he put forward that were good for the country. But I think it's fair to say that I regret the vote."

Cheney criticized House Republicans for promoting Stefanik to leadership, emphasizing that it was "dangerous" to elevate an individual who has continued to legitimize Trump's debunked election allegations.

"What does it say about the party choosing somebody to replace you, who was effectively chosen by Donald Trump and saying what he's been saying ... those very lies you were talking about?" she asked.

She added: "I think it's dangerous. I think that we have to recognize how quickly things can unravel. We have to recognize what it means for the nation to have a former president who has not conceded and who continues to suggest that our electoral system cannot function, cannot do the will of the people."
