New: House Republican Adam Kinzinger says he warned McCarthy days before Jan. 6 his rhetoric would stoke violence — “Kevin dismissively responded with ‘ok Adam, operator next question.’ And we got violence.”
GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger likened the Republican Party to the Titanic as House Conference Chair Liz Cheney's potential ouster from leadership continues to roil lawmakers. During an interview, he said that the GOP was "in the middle of this slow sink." https://t.co/MGDhjLAgRW
Adam Kinzinger: Look, it's incredible. So Liz Cheney is saying exactly what Kevin McCarthy said the day of the insurrection. She's just consistently been saying it. And a few weeks later, Kevin McCarthy changed to attacking other people https://t.co/sQ3SNJNWA4
Liz Cheney, telling the truth about January 6th and insisting on accountability: “President Trump provoked an attack on the United States Capitol. That is a person who does not have a role as a leader of our party going forward.”@AccountableGOPpic.twitter.com/ArhYDov6kl
McCarthy's top aide, Brian Jack, was Trump's WH political director and all in on the attempt to overturn the election–and now on the Cheney purge. It's not about 2022. It's about 2024–having a House GOP leadership ready to join state Rs in doing what they failed to do in 2020.
1) Thread on @Liz_Cheney@SteveScalise and @GOPLeader: Truth and lies cannot Co-exist. On January 6th, Liz and Kevin McCarthy have just about the same speech, rightly casting blame at the former President for the violence.
Kevin McCarthy (an employee of Donald Trump) may win tomorrow, but history won’t be kind. Never has our party gone after it’s own leadership like this, but Kevin and Steve Scalise made history, because Trump has thin skin. I’d be embarrassed if I was them https://t.co/qHxlSR4LDx
