The latest audio release of the House of Minority leader Kevin McCarthy contradicts his formal denial of considering asking for resignation from president Donald Trump over capitol riots.
The audio which was released on MSNBC on Thursday has McCarthy answering the question from Rep. Liz Cheney who was a member of the GOP leadership at that time. The question was whether there are chances of the resignation of Donald Trump or not? And McCarthy had replied “My gut tells me no. I am seriously thinking about having that conversation with him tonight.”
“The only discussion I would have with him is I think this will pass, and it would be my recommendation that he should resign,” McCarthy says, referring to the impeachment resolution in the House. “That would be my take, but I don’t think he would take it. But I don’t know.”
A spokesperson representing Cheney has claimed that the House Select Committee was already investigating the cause of the riots and fiasco and had asked Kevin McCarthy to open up about the events revolving around the riots but the request was always declined.
Rep. Cheney did not record the tape nor is part of the leakage as there is absolutely no clue how reporters get hold of the leaked tape.
Kevin McCarthy had denied the accusation just hours before the audio was leaked in the press stating that the resignation of Donald Trump was never in question, to begin with.
The audio was possessed by reporters Jonathan Martin and Alex burns and is part of their latest investigative book called “this will not pass: trump, Biden and the battle for America’s future”
“The New York Times reporting on me is totally false and wrong. It comes as no surprise that the corporate media is obsessed with doing everything it can to further a liberal agenda,” McCarthy said. “This promotional book tour is no different. If the reporters were interested in the truth, why would they ask for comments after the book was printed?”
