- Rep. Liz Cheney says telling the truth about what happened on Jan. 6 is worth losing her job.

- When asked if she'd run for president in 2024, Cheney told Tapper she hasn't made a decision yet.
Republican Rep. Liz Cheney says telling the truth about what happened on Jan. 6 is worth losing her job.
Speaking with CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday, Cheney said if she had to choose between maintaining a seat in Congress or being honest about the insurrection, she is "going to choose the Constitution and the truth every single day."
"There's no question," she added.
Cheney is vice chair of the Jan. 6 Committee and one of two Republicans investigating the January 6 riot. She told Tapper working on the committee is the single most important thing she's done professionally.
"Individuals like those who are running the Republican conference, who are the leadership of the Republicans in the house, need to be held accountable for their actions and they need to understand how serious this situation is," she told Tapper.
The Wyoming representative is currently working to win votes in her state before the Republican primary on August 16.
Cheney has been critical of Trump's role and said she will fight to ensure the former president is nowhere near the oval office again.
"You've made it very clear you don't think Donald Trump should be trusted with the presidency again," Tapper asked Cheney: "are you willing to run for president to try to stop him at least in part?"
To which Cheney responded, "at this point, I have not made a decision about 2024."
