WATCH: Steve Schmidt Says Kevin McCarthy Should Be Locked Up Until He Testifies About 1/6

Following the January 6th insurrection, Kevin McCarthy said all of the right things about punishing those who took part in the wrongdoing. But shortly after those comments, the House Minority Leader flew down to Mar-a-Lago and spoke with Donald Trump.

Since that meeting, McCarthy has done everything he can to hinder the congressional investigation into the matter. He was recently asked to speak to the panel and has said he will not cooperate. Steve Schmidt says the California congressman should be ‘locked in a basement’ until he talks.”

The former Republican strategist told Nicolle Wallace:

“Kevin McCarthy has become — this is an extraordinary thing for me say personally, because I met Kevin McCarthy before he was a member of congress, when he was the minority leader in the California legislature. As you know, Nicolle, Sacramento is a small town. And what Kevin McCarthy has become is this villainous figure that is among the most villainous figures that have been in the history of the American republic.”

Schmidt continued, “He’s always been at the center of it. He continues to be at the center of it. And the House should use every power that it has at its discretion, including an inherent contempt power that could see the sergeant of arms handcuff and detain Kevin McCarthy in a locked basement office until he wishes to testify.”
