In a press release sent out Tuesday afternoon, Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney announced she would vote to impeach President Trump. She is the first member of the GOP congressional leadership to do so.

In a statement, Cheney, the number three House Republican, said, "The President of the United States summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack. Everything that followed was his doing."Cheney's voting record has largely been in support of the president, but in more recent months, the lawmaker has publicly opposed him, including last week, when she condemned his role in the insurrection at the Capitol.

Cheney also said in her statement "There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution."
