GOP Rep. Liz Cheney: I will vote to impeach Pres. Trump

Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, the third-ranking House leader, announced she will vote to impeach Pres. Trump saying “there has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.” Cheney is one of three House Republicans who say they will vote to impeach Trump. Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has indicated he thinks the President committed impeachable offenses and impeaching him will make it easier to get rid of him and Trumpism from the Republican Party, according to a source with knowledge of the matter. Democratic Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney joins AC360 to react to some Republicans announcing they’ll vote to impeach and says right now is “time to stand up and be counted.” Plus, Trump says his speech right before the Capitol Hill riot was “totally appropriate” and he took no responsibility for inciting the deadly insurrection. The New York Times Foreign Affairs Columnist Thomas Friedman tells Anderson Cooper he wishes he could impeach Trump “four, five, six times” to send the message “you shall never do this again.”   Airdate: January 12, 2021   Guests: Sen.
