Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said in her first interview since Cassidy Hutchinson’s appearance before the House panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol that she is “absolutely confident” in the credibility of the former White House aide.

Cheney, a member of the panel, made the comment after ABC News Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl noted that former President Trump and several GOP officials have publicly questioned Hutchinson’s credibility.

“As you know, there’s an active campaign underway to destroy her credibility. Do you have any doubt at all in anything that she said to you?” Karl asked Cheney in a portion of the interview, which is set to air Sunday on “This Week.”

“I am absolutely confident in her credibility. I’m confident in her testimony,” Cheney replied. “I think that what Cassidy Hutchinson did was an unbelievable example of bravery and of courage and patriotism in the face of real pressure,” 

Cheney also told Karl that the Jan. 6 committee is confident that Hutchinson “testified honestly, and in her credibility.”

“Her credibility is there for the world to judge,” Cheney said in the interview. 

“She’s an incredibly brave young woman,” Cheney added. “The committee is not going to stand by and watch her character be assassinated by anonymous sources and by men who are claiming executive privilege.”
