WATCH: Eric Swalwell Says McCarthy and Jordan Should Be Worried About 1/6 Panel
Following the January 6th insurrection, Kevin McCarthy said he wanted to get to the bottom of the incident. That wasn’t actually true, though.
The Trump sycophant attempted to sabotage a panel meant to investigate the matter by appointing people like Jim Jordan and Jim Banks. California Congressman Eric Swalwell recently opined that Jordan and McCarthy should be testify as witnesses.
Swalwell explained, “Jim Jordan and Kevin McCarthy are not only witnesses to what happened at the Capitol on January 6th, they are witnesses to Donald Trump’s intent and, his conduct, the decisions that he made that day. That’s why Jim Jordan shouldn’t be anywhere close to the dais that is investigating January 6th, but he may be close to the witness table.”
The California lawmaker concluded, “One question that I have, Jonathan, as Kevin McCarthy years ago, famously talked about how Benghazi was designed to tear down Hillary Clinton, well, will any of these witnesses have the courage that Hillary Clinton showed that day when she testified for 11 hours? Will we get 11 seconds of Kevin McCarthy? Will we get 11 seconds of Jim Jordan? Will we get 11 seconds of Donald Trump, who you remember refused to testify when called to the impeachment trial.”
