Cheney demotion part of a Trump cover-up, per Bulwark

Clear conflict for McCarty. Behind the link:

“In March – Kevin McCarthy hired Brian Jack to run his political operation. Jack had been Donald Trump’s White House political director.”

“Brian Jack was directly involved in helping set up the rally that preceded the attack on the Capitol. Rep. Mo Brooks said that Jack called him and encouraged him to speak at the 1/6 rally, while Jack was still working for Trump.”

So Kevin McCarthy hired Jack knowing he was pushing Stop the Steal stuff.

After initially condemning Trump’s role in the insurrection, McCarthy has been aggressively walking back his criticisms, and revising his version of his conversation with Trump that day.

Liz Cheney has been pushing for the creation of an independent 9/11-style commission that would narrowly focus on the 1/6 attack on the Capitol.

“Which means undergirding this whole Liz + Commission thing is the fact that not only does Kevin himself have a conflict given his call with Trump on 1/6,” writes our friend. “But his top political guy would also potentially be a target of the investigation into 1/6.”
