The House select committee investigating the events at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, has released its final report, following 18 months of investigations and public hearings that many Republicans have derided as a partisan witch hunt and political hit job.
The 845-page report was widely expected to focus heavily on the role of former President Donald Trump, a personal priority of outgoing Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, a stalwart opponent of the 45th president.
Cheney led a group of House Republicans in voting to impeach Trump during his second impeachment trial. Her continued vitriolic comments against him ultimately prompted the House GOP to remove her from her leadership position. She was ultimately defeated in her primary by a Trump-backed challenger and will depart the House in January.
The Wyoming Republican was one of two hand-picked GOP lawmakers whom House Speaker Nancy Pelosi selected to participate in the investigations following her rejection of certain nominees from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. She was joined by Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who also voted to impeach Trump. Both earned the ire of the GOP for their involvement in the project and McCarthy even dubbed them “Pelosi Republicans.“
