When asked by Chris Wallace whether his report on Trump, who fueled the attack, was true, McCarthy attempted to rewrite the January 6th story by responding, “What I talked to President Trump about was me the first person to contact him about the riot was the go. He didn’t see it. What he ended the call was that he was going to come up with something to stop it, and he did. He later posted a video. “
Wallace asked a second time and McCarthy said, “My conversations with the President are my conversations with the President.”
The minority leader of the house then tried to rewrite more history.
McCarthy then claimed that he and Trump never discussed the discussed call and that he and Trump never spoke to clarify their story about the call, which is the subject of a federal criminal investigation.
Republicans are trying to make January 6th disappear. They don’t want to talk about it, are taking part in an active campaign to lessen the attempt to overthrow the government and are still trying to cover up Trump.
Rep. McCarthy goes all-in on Trump believing Trump will win the house back for Republicans next year, but he essentially called a member of his own caucus a liar.
McCarthy looked America in the eye and lied when Republicans were still covering Donald Trump.
