Gaetz Takes a Shot at McCarthy Over Handling of Cheney and Kinzinger on ‘Stalinist’ 1/6 Committee
GAETZ: "If Kevin McCarthy really wanted accountability for the Stalinist tactics of the January 6 committee, he would remove Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger from the committees that they serve on as a consequence of their membership in the Republican conference. You mentioned the highly important hearing earlier today with Secretary of State Blinken. Well, Adam Kinzinger got Republican time to ask questions in that committee. Liz Cheney was a part of drafting the National Defense Authorization Act serving on the House Armed Services Committee. Cheney and Kinzinger are are not on our team anymore. They’ve crossed the Rubicon and they are supporting these very Stalinist efforts through this January 6 committee to go after colleagues because of our politics. And the fact that they’re doing that and the fact that they face no consequence from McCarthy regarding committee removal really raises doubt as to whether or not Kevin will bring the level of vigor that we need to oversight and accountability when we ultimately take power. I mean, look, we need to be getting rid of Blinken."
