Kevin McCarthy on Trump’s ‘Lynching’ Tweet: ‘That’s Not the Language I Would Use’
McCARTHY: "That's not the language I would use. It's very clear that what the Democrats are doing here does not have due process, it's not fair in the process, it's not something the House has done ever in the past. Think about it for a moment. A Democrat-controlled House's Speaker set forth a process in dealing with President Nixon. A Republican Speaker set forth a fair process dealing with President Clinton. Now we even change the rules in the Intel Committee that you can't even read the transcript if you're on the committee unless the big hand of the majority party is there to witness you. Never has anyone been treated that way, let known not have due process, not have — President Clinton's case, his attorneys were there to be able to cross-examine, they were able to put a witness list together. Both sides had subpoena power. None of that is available today. So how can you even trust them and why would you even go forward?"
