U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi owes the American people an apology for her actions at the end of the State of the Union address Tuesday night.

Cheney, appearing on FOX News on Wednesday, was referring to Pelosi ripping in half the State of the Union address immediately following the conclusion of President Trump’s remarks.

“She owes the American people an apology,” Cheney said. “That’s an official document of the House of Representatives and she brought dishonor on the House of Representatives.

“She is the one who owes the people an apology,” she said.

Cheney also said Speaker Pelosi should apologize to America for her actions during the impeachment trial.

“She absolutely abandoned her oath to the Constitution,” she said.

When asked if she thought Democrats might attempt to impeach the president again, Cheney said she wouldn’t be surprised.

“I think it helps us [the Republican Party] every time Jerry Nadler, Adam Schiff, and Nancy Pelosi are on television,” Cheney said. “I want them on more.”

She said when the public sees them discussing “never-ending investigation and never-ending impeachment” that it will bolster Republican turnout in the November election.

“The American people see why elections matter so much and they see why it’s so important that we get the majority back,” she said.

President Donald Trump recognized U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) on Tuesday night during his State of the Union address.

Trump urged Congress to pass Barrasso’s Highway Infrastructure legislation.

“We must also rebuild America’s infrastructure,” Trump said to a bipartisan standing ovation.

“I ask you to pass Senator John Barrasso’s highway bill to invest in new roads, bridges, and tunnels all across our land,” he said.

Barrasso’s bill would authorize $287 billion over five years for highways, a figure that is a 27% increase over the current authorizations.

“The president spoke loud and clear tonight about putting partisan politics aside to pass a monumental American infrastructure plan,” Barrasso said following the State of the Union. “This is our moment. We passed a bipartisan bill out of my committee. It’s the largest highway infrastructure bill in our history to rebuild our roads, highways, and bridges. Even more important, it cuts red tape so we can build better, smarter, faster, and cheaper.

“Impeachment has been a costly distraction. We should answer the president’s call and the call of American workers, to put the partisan fights behind us, and get this done now.”
