McCarthy blames Trump for insurrection, wanted a resignation: released audio recording confirms

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy is being exposed in a newly released audio recording that suggests he blamed Donald Trump for the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6 when people breached the building. McCarthy had also hoped that Donald Trump would resign, but McCarthy ultimately voted against impeachment.

As heard on the newly released Kevin McCarthy audio recordings, per a report:

“I’m seriously thinking of having that conversation with him tonight… from what I know of him — I mean, you guys know him too — do you think he would ever back away? I think this will pass, and that would be my recommendation you should resign… That would be my take, but I don’t think he would take it, but I don’t know.”

McCarthy denied having that conversation, but the newly released audio recording proves differently. It appears that House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy really did have the conversation, but more information and context of the full conversation is needed to provide a more clear picture.

McCarthy said that reports of him having the conversation were “totally false and wrong” but now the conversation appears to exist.

It’s said that more audio recordings may be available in the future, but one must wonder why more conversations are not fully available right now.
