House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said on the House floor moments ago that President Trump bears partial responsibility for the Jan. 6 Capitol building riot.
Business Insider reported McCarthy allegedly snapped during a phone call with the president on Monday after Trump stated that disguised Antifa members were solely responsible for the attack despite the arrests and deaths of pro-Trump participants. “It’s not Antifa — it’s MAGA,” McCarthy said, according to Axios, adding, “I know. I was there.”

While McCarthy expressed his frustration, he continues to advocate against impeachment.
Axios further reports on the occasionally combative 30-minute call between Trump and McCarthy on Monday:
The White House official said the call was tense and aggressive at times, with Trump ranting about election fraud and an exasperated McCarthy cutting in to say, “Stop it. It’s over. The election is over.”
He told Trump he should call Joe Biden, meet with the president-elect and follow tradition and leave a welcome letter in the Resolute Desk for his successor.
The president told him he hadn’t decided whether to do so for Biden.
A White House spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Amid the ongoing impeachment debate, President Trump released another statement denouncing all forms of political violence.
TRUMP statement: “In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers.” pic.twitter.com/rGfNdXqCvR

It was stolon. I know people can gain a chunk of votes. but not lose a chunk of votes. I was watching the Georgia runoff. The tape running across the bottom or the screen television on the night of the runoff. All of a sudden Mr Perdue LOST 32,400 votes.
Of course. But then he is just another RINO, so probably doesn’t matter.
I watched that too. Thought it was odd when over 95 % or so of the votes were in! Same machines, same nonsense. In fact those machines had problems earlier in the day with about 3 Republican counties, mind you, no Democrat counties! Very little news about it, of course!
I can’t stand the Democrats in congress…..but I overwhelmingly detest the Republicans even more who roll over to the Dems.
I can no longer stand a democrat as they are not the democrats of the old days !!!
This is perfectly said! IMO,!McCarthy, is just another RINO. Never ever trusted him since he was just another Paul Ryan pawn. Totally controlled by the same crowd of thugs that control the wimpy weasels like Lindsey Graham, McConnell, Mike Lee and Romney and the two witches.
Democrats are responsible for Antifa & BLM!! but I don’t see anyone charging democrats TREASON. Get real RHINO’s. You are working hand in hand with the democrats!
I am glad to see the Rinos come to surface so the people will know who NOT to elect at next election!
LOL! NEXT ELECTION???
THEY HAVE WRAPPED IT UP AND ANYONE ONE TO OPPOSE THEM WILL BE… well as we have seen.
BIDEN ADMIN ARE ALL COMING FROM LARGER THAN LARGE BIG SILICON VALLEY BIG TECH FAKEBOOK, AMAZON, GOOGLE!
PAY FOR PLAY GO THEM POSITIONED.
THIS WAS WELL PLANNED AND CALCULATIVE BY DESIGN!
Petition your state to remove dominion machines, film the count of votes, 4 sets of eyes on each count. Any intimidation of counters os observers immediate felony, min 5 yrs 10k fine.
Watch carefully and take notes! Too many swing with the tide and only when they want to be re-elected do they get some initiative and resourcefulness.
You mean, “elections” by Dominion? Bwaaahaaahaaa
