Rep. Cheney said when asked about McCarthy, deserving to be Speaker of the House, “ I think that any person who would be third in line to the presidency must demonstrate a commitment to the constitution and a commitment to the rule of law and the minority leader has not done that.”
If Kevin McCarthy Won’t Protect The Constitution And The Rule Of Law, He Is A Danger To Democracy.
By pulling his picks off of the 1/6 Committee, McCarthy is showing that his loyalty is to Donald Trump, not democracy, the Constitution, or the American people.
Rep. Cheney was right, but I would go one step beyond her comments. Not only is McCarthy unfit to be Speaker, but he is also unfit to be a member of Congress.
