Kevin McCarthy Has Been Caught Backpedaling, And It Is…

The New York Times political correspondents, Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns released passages from their latest book, titled: “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” resulting in further investigations from Times, as previously reported by TGP last Thursday.

In the passage they revealed, they claimed that on January 10, 2021, GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy told Liz Cheney during the call that would counsel Trump to resign before the end of his term.

However, the claim was immediately refuted by McCarthy’s spokesman Mark Bednar as the news broke early in the news, saying, “McCarthy never said he’d call Trump to say he should resign.”

After The New York Times first broke the story, McCarthy himself called the claims about his conversations “totally false.”

Then he got caught.

On Thursday night, during her show, Rachel Maddow leaked the private phone call of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy with Trump-hating lunatic Liz Cheney on January 10, 2021. During the call, McCarthy told Liz Cheney that he would counsel President Trump Trump to resign.

This is exactly what the book reported, then Liz Cheney released the call to the authors. And now Kevin McCarthy was caught in a lie.

From the call:

Kevin McCarthy:  “I think [impeachment resolutions] will pass, and it would be my recommendation you (President Trump) should resign… What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it.”

McCarthy also indicated that he believed Twitter and Facebook should delete the accounts of lawmakers who were supporting Trump’s claim of a rigged election. “We can’t put up with that,” he said. “Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away, too?”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson also commented:

“Those are the tape-recorded words of congressman Kevin McCarthy, a man who in private, it turns out, sounds like an MSNBC contributor.”

The Gateway Pundit noted:

On Wednesday Kevin McCarthy spoke to GOP members at their conference and defended his call with GOP leaders following the Jan. 6 protests.  The GOP caucus gave him a standing ovation!

What a bunch of clowns.  These people could not care less about their voting base.

They really, really HATE their voters.
