The lies have caught up to him. McCarthy said he would counsel President Trump to resign and audio proves it
Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy swore up and down that the New York Times was misquoting him when they reported that he would counsel President Trump to resign. However, the audio leaked by Rachel Maddow proves that he was lying.
In a book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden, and the Battle for America’s Future,” written by two NYT reporters, Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns, one passage shows then House Speaker McCarthy telling Liz Cheney on January 10th that he would counsel President Trump to resign from office.
Naturally, McCarthy tried to lie himself out of it–calling the entire passage “totally false.”
But Rachel Maddow, of all people, proved his ill intent. Maddow released the private phone call between McCarthy and Crazy Liz Cheney which verified fully what the book alleged.
The lies are revealed to the public. Kevin McCarthy, referring to impeachment, said he would say to President Trump
“I think this will pass, and it would be my recommendation you should resign. Um, I mean that woul be my take, but I don’t think he would take it. But I don’t know.”
Additionally, he said in reference to Trump-camp Republicans like Representative Boebert
“We can’t put up with that. Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away, too?”
And so, MccArthy conspired with Liz Cheney to push for President Trump to resign, then lied about it. But he won’t get away with it now.
Kevin McCarthy should take his own advice and resign.
