Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said House minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) must apologize or resign after threatening Speaker Pelosi.
Rep. Lieu tweeted in response to McCarthy threatening the House spokesman:
Dear @GOPLeader McCarthy: Don’t you think America has had enough political violence? You should never encourage, threaten, or joke any kind of violence on anybody, including the Speaker of the House of Representatives. You must either apologize for what you said or stand down. https://t.co/jdP2bcmr5c

McCarthy is not going to resign. This is the same person who was forced by the House of Representatives to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee duties and refused to remove accused child sex dealer Matt Gaetz from his committee duties.
Kevin McCarthy thinks he will be the next House Speaker, so he went out of his way to cover up Donald Trump and support local terrorists.
Rep. Lieu was right. After the 1/6, McCarthy should stop promoting political violence.
His words were dangerous and showed a level of reckless irresponsibility that the American people can expect to lead their leadership when they become House Spokespersons.
Kevin McCarthy is a threat to the country’s internal security because, like Trump, he puts his own interests above the country.
