She should have stopped there.
Cheney then went on to try to claim that she was the ranking member. “And I am the ranking Republican member by nature of when I was appointed.”
Liz Cheney claims to be the Ranking member of the J6 Commission. There are huge legal implications associated with this lie, as @MZHemingway pointed out.
Lying Liz also pushes lies about @RepJimBanks in this interview.

Holy crap! Liz Cheney just falsely claimed she is the ranking member — the top representative of the GOP caucus — on the J6 committee. In fact, she was hand-selected by Nancy Pelosi and Is NOT the ranking member. Huge, huge legal implications associated with this lie.

The congresswoman then went on to criticize Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), as part of “some on the Republican side who are attempting to obstruct the work of the committee,” as she mentioned he “has been sending letters to federal agencies claiming that he is the ranking member of the committee, which he’s not.”
Rep. Cheney threw House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) under the bus as well.
“This committee is a bipartisan committee. It was constituted completely in accordance with the rules of the House and with the rules of resolution that created it. And Minority Leader McCarthy refused to name people. He pulled back all of the people that he had appointed to the committee. We are working in a nonpartisan fashion and we are going to get our work done despite attempts to try to block and obstruct,” she claimed.
