Kevin McCarthy Unhinged: Rages that Nancy Pelosi Has ‘Broken’ the House of Representatives
“Everything Trump touches dies.”
Kevin McCarthy is the same guy who frantically screamed at Trump amidst the horrors of January 6th, only to hear, “Well, Kevin, I guess they’re more upset about the election than you.” Kevin McCarthy is the guy who, in the days after January 6th, put the blame squarely on Trump. Kevin McCarthy is also that guy that turned down the opportunity to have a 50-50 bipartisan select committee study the January 6th events. We presume he turned it down on Trump’s order, just like McConnell had to ask for “personal favors” against voting yes for the investigation.
Now, Kevin McCarthy is whining because Nancy Pelosi kicked two of the five people McCarthy appointed, off the committee, the Trump eyes, ears, and mouths of the committee. Now McCarthy wants to blow it all up, which was his intention from the very beginning. From Mediaite:

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken the unprecedented step of denying the minority party’s picks for the Select Committee on January 6,” McCarthy said. “This represents an egregious abuse of power and will irreparably damage this institution. Denying the voices of members who have served in the military and law enforcement, as well as leaders of standing committees, has made it undeniable that this panel has lost all legitimacy and credibility and shows the Speaker is more interested in playing politics than seeking the truth.
“Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.”
He then went on to explain how it was Pelosi, not Trump, that destroyed the institution:
“Pelosi has taken the unprecedented step of rejecting the minority’s picks for the select committee,” McCarthy said. he added, “It’s an egregious breach of power…Speaker Pelosi has broken this institution.
Wrong. Trump broke it. Kevin McCarthy would’ve taken the bipartisan committee the first go-round had Trump let him. But Trump didn’t let him and forced McCarthy to put at least two reliable stormtroopers in place, thus ruining the institution.
Kevin McCarthy: "Pelosi has broken this institution … House Democrats must answer this question: Why are you allowing a lame duck Speaker to destroy this institution? This is the people's House, not Pelosi’s House!" pic.twitter.com/ppXJzOicL5
