Kevin McCarthy: Democrats are Using January 6th as a ‘Partisan Political Weapon’

Following last year’s attack on the United States Capitol, Kevin McCarthy said all of the right things. But then he went down to Mar-a-Lago and got a talking-to from Donald Trump.

After that meeting, the California congressman did everything he could to halt investigations into that day. When a bipartisan panel was proposed, McCarthy attempted to sabotage it by nominating election deniers Jim Banks and Jim Jordan. But this week, McCarthy claimed that it was Democrats who were trying to use 1/6 as a political weapon.

The house minority leader wrote in a letter to Republicans, “As we have said from the start, the actions of that day were lawless and as wrong as wrong can be. Our Capitol should never be compromised and those who broke the law deserve to face legal repercussions and full accountability.”

McCarthy continued, “Unfortunately, one year later, the majority party seems no closer to answering the central question of how the Capitol was left so unprepared and what must be done to ensure it never happens again. Instead, they are using it as a partisan political weapon to further divide our country.”
