Liz Cheney Admits To ’60 Minutes’ That She Was ‘Wrong’ In Her Past To Homosexual Marriage

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Liz Cheney told CBS’ 60 Minutes that she was “wrong” to oppose same-sex marriage after her family, including her sister, Mary, and her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, publicly separated over the issue.

During an interview with reporter Lesley Stahl on Sunday, the Wyoming Republican was asked about the topic and indicated her opinion had changed on the matter.

“I was mistaken. I was mistaken. I adore my little sister. I adore her and her family “Stahl was informed by her. “It’s a very personal matter for me, and for my family as well. I suppose my father was correct. And that is something my sister and I have discussed.”

In 2013, Liz Cheney notably defied her family by opposing gay marriage ahead of a failed Senate campaign. Her protests sparked a wedge with her married lesbian sister, Mary. Heather Poe, Mary’s wife, said on Facebook at the time that Cheney’s position was hurtful and that “I always thought freedom meant freedom for EVERYONE.”

“This is an issue that we have to understand as human beings,” Cheney told 60 Minutes, “that we need to strive against prejudice of all types in our society, in our state.” “We were at an event a few nights ago, and one of the attendees was a young woman who expressed concern about her safety because she is transgender. And no one should feel threatened. Everyone has the right to be free.”

Cheney is standing for re-election in Wyoming in 2022 for a fourth term. However, her adamant opposition to former President Donald Trump, who continues to wield significant power in the Cowboy State, has made reelection an uphill battle.

Cheney is vice chairman of a committee set up by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to look into Trump’s role in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by hundreds of his supporters as Congress was declaring Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election.

Cheney slammed Biden’s “truly catastrophic ideas” on the economy and national security in the interview. “However, the alternative cannot be a president who does not believe in the rule of law and has broken his oath of office,” Cheney said.

She called House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy’s decision to court Trump after the insurgency “unforgiveable,” and said a number of Republicans on Capitol Hill have privately informed her they support her standing up to Trump.

“I mean, what is it if they truly believe what you’re doing is correct, and they admire and promote it, but they won’t do it?” Stahl inquired.

“A common argument is that if you do something that is thought to be anti-Trump, you will put yourself in political jeopardy,” she responded. “And that’s a self-fulfilling prophecy because until Republican leaders speak out and denounce what happened, the toxic voices within the party will only get louder and stronger.”

Trump has pledged to defeat Cheney in the Republican primary contest next year by endorsing attorney Harriet Hageman. Nothing less than the Constitution’s power, according to Cheney, is at risk.

“In 2022, I believe it will be the most important House race in the country. And it will be one in which people will be able to declare, “We want to stand for the Constitution,” “she stated “A vote against me in this campaign, a vote for whoever Donald Trump has backed, is a vote for someone who is willing to continue the big deception, someone who is willing to put Trump’s commitment to the Constitution above allegiance to the Constitution, certainly.”
