(TheRedAlertNews.com) – In a radio interview today, former President Donald J. Trump slammed United States House of Representatives Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
Trump is angry at McCarthy for making a “bad decision” when McCarthy withdrew his Republican nominees from the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021, protest last year. That decision by McCarthy allowed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to have complete control over who was appointed to the committee.
“It was a bad decision not to have representation on that committee,” Mr. Trump told USA Radio Network host Wayne Allyn Root. “That was a very, very foolish decision because they try to pretend like they’re legit, and only when you get into the inner workings, you say, ‘what kind of a thing is this?’ Just a one-sided witch hunt.”
“There’s no clearer example of the menacing spirit that has devoured the American left than the disgraceful performance being staged by the unselect committee,” Trump continued.
The Washington Times notes that once McCarthy pulled his selections to the committee, “Ms. Pelosi hand-selected two anti-Trump Republicans, Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois to serve on the committee. The remaining seven members, including the Chairman, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson of Mississippi, are Democrats.”
