Happening Now: In response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejecting two Republicans that the GOP selected to sit on the committee investigating the Capitol riot, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy held a blistering news conference (see video below) blasting Pelosi for her actions.
In the video below, McCarthy concludes with a challenge to House Democrats that indicates he believes the GOP will take back the House next November, asking, “Why are you allowing a lame-duck Speaker to destroy this institution?”
It’s worth watching all four minutes of the video below if you want to fully understand McCarthy’s position on what Pelosi did this morning.
