McCarthy Latest GOP Lawmaker Asked to Appear Before January 6 Committee

House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy will be asked to appear voluntarily before the Select Committee on the January 6 Attack says Chairman Bennie Thompson.

CBS News congressional reporter Zak Hudak reported the news moments ago.

McCarthy will be the third known House Republican asked to appear before the committee. Both Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Scott Perry (R-PA), have refused.

McCarthy in a well-reported move phoned then-President Donald Trump, begging him to call off the violent insurrectionists on January 6. Trump’s response was, “Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.”
