FIREBRAND: Matt Gaetz Blasts House GOP Leadership for Trump Betrayal in Leaked Audio
Rep. Matt Gaetz called out top Republican Party brass, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-FL) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), for their craven betrayal of President Donald Trump behind the scenes.
Gaetz called out the weakness of McCarthy, Scalise and other RINOs noting that this is what they really believe, and they just phone it in for their constituents while paying lip service to them on the campaign trail.
“Rep. McCarthy and Rep. Scalise held views about President Trump and me that they shared on sniveling calls with Liz Cheney, not us,” Gaetz wrote. “This is the behavior of weak men, not leaders.”
McCarthy and Scalise were heard on audio not only disavowing Trump but also expressing anger with Gaetz for calling out Republicans who were not standing with the president.
“They deemed it incendiary or illegal to call Cheney and Kinzinger ‘Anti-Trump,’ a label both proudly advertise today,” Gaetz said.
“On the bright side, you no longer have to be a lobbyist with a $5,000 check to know what McCarthy and Scalise really think. You just have to listen to their own words as they disparage Trump and the Republicans in Congress who fight for him,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on the leaked audio tapes showing how Republican leaders plotted against Trump on Jan. 6:
“A new book is revealing how top GOP leaders Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) betrayed President Donald Trump on Jan. 6.
After the mostly-peaceful protest in and around the U.S. Capitol, McCarthy and McConnell were plotting behind closed doors to destroy President Trump, including the possibility of colluding with Democrats to impeach the President.
The new book, “This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future,” by New York Times reporters Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns details the backroom dealings that McCarthy and McConnell were working on amidst the chaos of Jan. 6.
“I’ve had it with this guy,” McCarthy told a group of Republican leaders on Jan. 6, adding that Trump’s actions “inciting people” in the Capitol were “atrocious and totally wrong.”
“What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that and nobody should defend it,” the House Minority Leader stated, also contemplating the use of the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. McCarthy also told confidants he would implore Trump to resign from office.
Shamefully, McCarthy also called for more Big Tech censorship against America First leaders, such as Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for refusing to accept the phony narrative about Jan. 6.
“We can’t put up with that,” McCarthy said, adding, “Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away, too?”
Reps. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Tom Emmer (R-MN) joined McCarthy in his anti-Trump plotting, suggesting the need for a “post-Trump Republican House” and the need to censure the president.
In the days following Jan. 6, Mitch McConnell was working back channels in an attempt to impeach President Trump to prevent him from ever running for office again.
“The Democrats are going to take care of the son of a bitch for us,” McConnell said, adding that “if [Trump’s behavior on Jan. 6] isn’t impeachable, I don’t know what is,”‘
Gaetz is the future of the Republican Party, and RINOs like McCarthy, Scalise and McConnell are the past. They are dying out and will be replaced by America First leaders in no time.
