Kevin McCarthy in Trump doghouse

It’s been a week for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

First came a piece on CNN headlined, “Frustrated with January 6 hearings, Trump turns ire toward his allies,” that included these lines:

“‘I don’t understand why Kevin didn’t put anyone on the committee,’ Trump ​has recently ​griped to those around him, according to a GOP source with direct knowledge of the comments – a reference to … McCarthy’s decision to boycott the select committee after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two ​Republican members he originally chose to sit on the panel.”

Then on Thursday, Politico and The Washington Post both published stories making Trump’s disappointment with McCarthy clear.

The Post piece – “As Jan. 6 committee targets Trump, his consternation at McCarthy grows” – included these lines:

Trump has said privately for months that McCarthy’s decision to pull pro-Trump Republicans from sitting on the Jan. 6 select committee was a mistake, one that has become clearer as Trump watches the hearings that are working to build the case that he should be criminally charged for conspiring to overturn the 2020 presidential election.”
