Rand Paul sides with Liz Cheney opponent at Wyoming event

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is criticizing Liz Cheney, saying the committee investigating the U.S. Capitol insurrection is an “abomination” that should be disbanded.

Paul spoke in Cheyenne on Monday at a campaign event for Harriet Hageman, a Cheyenne attorney who's running against Cheney in Wyoming's upcoming Republican primary.

Cheney has become a target within her own party for voting to impeach Donald Trump for the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection and for being on the House committee investigating it.

A Cheney spokesperson says the committee is conducting a nonpartisan investigation into the most serious attack on the Capitol in more than 200 years.
