BETRAYAL: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Blames President Trump for Last Week’s Siege on U.S. Capitol
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) issued a statement on Wednesday echoing Democrat talking points in blaming President Donald Trump for violence that occurred in the U.S. Capitol last week.
“The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack by mob rioters,” McCarthy said about last week’s demonstration.
“What we saw last week was not the American way. Neither is the continued rhetoric that Joe Biden is not the legitimate president,” he added.
2/ McCarthy: "What we saw last week was not the American way. Neither is the continued rhetoric that Joe Biden is not the legitimate president."
ZERO acknowledgment that he used that rhetoric, that he shared those lies and voted accordingly for sedition AFTER the attack.

This comes after news that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is in support of impeachment and working behind the scenes to destroy President Trump’s GOP legacy.
Big League Politics has reported about the incredible betrayal by the GOP establishment after they refused to do anything substantial to combat voter fraud:
Mitch McConnell is reportedly “pleased” about the possibility of Trump’s second impeachment, viewing it as an opportunity to purge Trump from the Republican Party and whatever else Conservative Inc. deems “toxic.”
In a New York Times report published Monday afternoon, Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman write that the outgoing Senate Majority Leader believes Trump committed “impeachable offenses.” McConnell also welcomes impeachment in order to justify dumping Trump and shedding his influence over the GOP.
“Mr. McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, has indicated that he wants to see the specific article of impeachment that the House is set to approve on Wednesday, which is expected to draw support from as many as a dozen Republicans, potentially including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the party’s No. 3 in the House,” the report reads. “But he has made clear in private discussions that he believes now is the moment to move on the weakened lame duck, whom he blames for causing Republicans to lose the Senate.”
The Times also claims that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, although personally opposed to impeachment, has decided along with “other party leaders” to not formally lobby Republicans to vote “no” and is open to censuring the president. McCarthy discussed with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer a plan to get Republicans on board with a formal censure, but only if Democrats “backed off” from impeachment.
Big League Politics has closely followed McConnell’s ongoing betrayal of the president. At last week’s joint session of Congress, McConnell gave a speech rejecting President Trump’s claims of widespread fraud and a stolen election. The next day, McConnell echoed Joe Biden’s remarks that the breach of the Capitol building represented an act of “insurrection.”
The Republican Party establishment may destroy their own party and their own nation to join the Democrats’ witch hunt against President Trump. This is a betrayal that puts anything Benedict Arnold did to shame.
