Rep. McCarthy accuses Democrats of using January 6th as a ‘partisan political weapon’

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) accused Democrats of using January 6th as a ‘partisan political weapon’ in a letter to his GOP colleagues on Sunday.

According to The Hill, this letter was written in light of the one-year anniversary of the January 6th attacks on the Capitol.

The letter said, “As we have said from the start, the actions of that day were lawless and as wrong as wrong can be. Our Capitol should never be compromised and those who broke the law deserve to face legal repercussions and full accountability. Unfortunately, one year later, the majority party seems no closer to answering the central question of how the Capitol was left so unprepared and what must be done to ensure it never happens again.”

He added, “instead, they are using it as a partisan political weapon to further divide our country.” McCarthy highlighted the issues from the Biden administration’s first year, including inflation, the rise in crime, the southern border crisis, and the latest surge in Covid cases (New York Post).

Additionally, he accused Democratic leaders of being “negligent” in the protection of the Capitol on January 6th.

The California Republican also called out the lack of progress in the investigation into the events on the 6th. However, former White House trade advisor Peter Navarro called him an idiot for not including other republicans on the committee investigating January 6th (KMJ Now).

“I mean, he plays checkers and chess world at a critical time. He refused to put Republicans on that committee other than Liz Cheney, who’s not a Republican, so we lost our opportunity to publicly press that advantage.”
