Recent Pro-Trump Convert Kevin McCarthy Demands Apology After RussiaGate Hoax Busted

The House Minority Leader spoke frankly about what he wanted from those with collusion delusion.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) demanded those who pushed the RussiaGate hoax for two years apologize to the American people after Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s investigation turned up no evidence of collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

“Sunday was a very good day for America, regardless of where you stand politically,” McCarthy opened. “It was a moment in time where you got the answer to the question. It was a very clear answer. No collusion.”

Notably, Rep. McCarthy has a long history of turmoil with conservative and populist Republicans. McCarthy was rated as one of the most liberal Republicans by Conservative Review, carding a score of 36%, an “F”.

McCarthy even tried to blame conservatives for Republican losses during the 2018 midterm elections —  an allegation perhaps driven by the reality that his would-be Speakership was derailed by House conservatives and their open allusion to his zipper problems, as New York Magazine details here.

But in 2019, the congressman has been very clear on what he wanted to see from politicians and media types who spread the RussiaGate conspiracy hoax.

“For those who misled the American public, for those who said for more than two years that there’s circumstantial evidence of collusion, owe America an apology,” McCarthy said. To mislead us, to lead us down a path, to withhold our ability to solve problems that were before the American public, and now it’s a moment of time for the Democrats to turn a page — not to waste their majority as they have for the time that they have been in.”

The conspiracy theorists in the fake news media often stated as a fact that Trump was guilty of collusion, or implied as much when they discussed his removal from office by way of impeachment.

McCarthy also demanded an apology on behalf of Trump.

“I think he’s owed an apology from every individual that stood there and said they had proof. If they said they knew of collusion … I do believe he’s owed an apology from anyone that put their politics of dislike before the American public.”

While McCarthy is likely to try to take the gavel from Nancy Pelosi should Republicans assume the house majority in 2020, many Trump supporters remain unconvinced of sincere conversion to the Trump vision for putting America first.

He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

Gardner found his backbone.

Published

on

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.

This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.

“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.

“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.

One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.

The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
