A phone call between Gen, Mark Milley and Liz Cheney had this not at all surprising anecdote about her time during the Capitol riot when representatives thought they were in real danger.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) that he was responsible for the Capitol riot while the scene was evolving on Jan. 6, according to a new book.
In “I Alone Can Fix It,” Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker write about a phone call between Cheney and Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in which the Wyoming Republican describes a confrontation she had with Jordan during the riot, CNN reported.
“That f------ guy Jim Jordan. That son of a bitch. ... While these maniacs are going through the place, I’m standing in the aisle and he said, ‘We need to get the ladies away from the aisle. Let me help you.’ I smacked his hand away and told him, ‘Get away from me. You f------ did this,’” Cheney reportedly told the general.

Liz Cheney smacked away Jim Jordan's hand while the Capitol was being invaded on 1/6, telling him: "Get away from me. You fucking did this."
I don’t agree with Cheney on much but she speaks for all of us here
