Thompson defended his decision, complimenting Cheney for seeking the truth. “Representative Cheney has demonstrated again and again her commitment to getting answers about January 6th, ensuring accountability, and doing whatever it takes to protect democracy for the American people,” Thompson wrote in a statement. “Her leadership and insights have shaped the early work of the Select Committee and this appointment underscores the bipartisan nature of this effort.”
Cheney wrote that she accepted the appointment to help in the non-partisan investigation. “Every member of this committee is dedicated to conducting a non-partisan, professional, and thorough investigation of all the relevant facts regarding January 6th and the threat to our Constitution we faced that day. I have accepted the position of Vice Chair of the committee to assure that we achieve that goal,” Cheney wrote. “We owe it to the American people to investigate everything that led up to, and transpired on, January 6th. We will not be deterred by threats or attempted obstruction and we will not rest until our task is complete.”
Cheney is one of two Republican members to the Committee. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) is her fellow party member.

BREAKING: House fails to pass stopgap funding bill to avoid government shutdown
The House of Representatives failed to pass a continuing resolution negotiated between conservative and moderate House Republicans in an effort to avoid a government shutdown.
The Spending Reduction and Border Security Act was introduced by Republican Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida on Sept. 18, following negotiations between the conservative House Freedom Caucus and centrist Main Street Caucus, as a compromise between divided factions of the House Republican Conference to achieve unanimity while avoiding a government shutdown. The bill failed the House by a vote of 198 yeas to 232 nays, with all Democrats voting against the bill.
The bill would fund the government until Oct. 31 and cut public spending by 8.1285%, according to the bill’s text. This would yield $1.59 trillion for one month until the House and Senate pass 12 appropriations bills to provide permanent funding for the 2024 fiscal year.
The Biden administration issued a statement on Friday staunchly opposing the bill, claiming that its cuts to public spending were too severe. It indicated that President Joe Biden will veto the bill if it is presented to him, which means it is unlikely to be passed by the Democratic-led Senate, either.
The Senate has been working on its own bipartisan continuing resolution to fund the government, which includes funding for Ukraine. House Republicans have criticized the bill, with Donalds saying that it is “dead on arrival” in the House.
