McCarthy Pummels Pelosi for ‘Irresponsible’ Cover-Up Accusation, Questioning Republicans’ Oaths of Office

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) tore into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for her accusation that President Donald Trump is engaged in a “cover-up.”

While speaking to reporters at a press conference on Thursday, McCarthy — who sat as the House majority leader until January of this year — said he was “concern[ed]” about the leaders of the “new socialist Democratic Party.”

“If we’re serious about solving problems, I think the actions of the speaker were irresponsible,” McCarthy said before digging into Pelosi for her meeting to reportedly discuss impeachment ahead of her scheduled conference with Trump over infrastructure as well as her “irresponsible” Wednesday comments in which she accused the president of being involved in a “cover-up”:

“You’ve had scheduled for a number of weeks to have a follow-up meeting with the president to talk about infrastructure, to actually come to a solution. But what do you do right before that meeting? You schedule a special conference of the majority to talk about impeachment. You walk out to the microphones before, and you claim the president is covering something up.”

Watch the video here:

“And that same day, the speaker questioned all Republicans’ oath to the Constitution,” McCarthy continued. “This is irresponsible. This is not a way to govern.

“The speaker and I will disagree philosophically, but I would never question her oath,” he added.

The minority leader continued by calling on Congress to “do better,” suggesting that lawmakers stay in Washington to work on pushing through the supplemental disaster legislation.

McCarthy’s comments came a day after Pelosi accused the president of engaging in a cover-up.

As IJR Red previously reported, Pelosi on Thursday said that she thinks Trump is “crying out” for impeachment while denying that her party was divided on the subject as more Democrats — and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) — call for the president to be impeached.

Sorry, Houston, but you don’t have a clue what “pummels” looks like.
