Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the third-ranking House Republican, claimed Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump is partly to blame for Turkey's invasion of northern Syria.
Though Trump has faced bipartisan backlash for withdrawing American troops from the region ahead of the Turkish assault against U.S-allied Kurdish forces, Cheney said Democrats should also be held responsible for the crisis.
"The impeachment proceedings that are going on and what the Democrats are doing themselves to try to weaken this president is part of this," Cheney said Monday on "Fox & Friends."
"It was not an accident that the Turks chose this moment to roll across the border," Cheney added. "And I think the Democrats have got to pay very careful attention to the damage that they're doing with impeachment proceedings."
