GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy Won’t Cooperate with “Illegitimate” January 6 Committee

HeadlineJan 13, 2022

Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday he will not cooperate with the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The panel had asked McCarthy to voluntarily testify about Trump’s state of mind in the run-up to the riot and in the week following the attack on Congress. McCarthy slammed the committee as “illegitimate” and said his private conversations with Trump were “not remotely related to the violence that unfolded at the Capitol.”
