After she was ousted from the third Republican Party leadership post on Wednesday, Rep. Liz Cheney regrets the fact that she had voted for Trump in the 2020 Presidential Elections.

“I was never going to support Joe Biden and I do regret the vote,” she told ABC News’ 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.”

  • Karl asked Cheney about the overwhelming vote to replace her by nominating Rep. Elise Stefanik, a New York lawmaker who supports Trump’s unfounded voter fraud claims.

    “I think it’s dangerous. I think that we have to recognize how quickly things can unravel,” she replied.

    “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.”
