"Cheney's answer was her latest swipe at the GOP and its candidates. A lifelong Republican, Cheney has become increasingly critical of her party over the past year and a half after she voted to impeach Trump for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol," the Hill reported.
"She's repeatedly lamented the former president's iron grip on the GOP and its hard-right direction, and is one of only two Republicans sitting on the House select committee charged with investigating the Jan. 6 riot," it added.
