House GOP leader: “This is not a day that America will be proud about”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a news conference this morning, responding to the articles of impeachment against President Trump, said Democrats “changed the course of Congress to takeaway due process.”

He continued: “I just hope no Congress, regardless of who is in the majority, will ever take us down this path again… to have wasted a majority on this is an embarrassment to this Congress.” McCarthy added, “This is not a day that America will be proud about.”

Asked if he agrees that Trump’s famous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was “perfect,” McCarthy dodged the question and said the articles won’t be about whether the call is “perfect.”

“Nothing on that phone call is wrong” he said, adding that it is absolutely “not impeachable.”
On the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) McCarthy said Speaker Nancy Pelosi only announced it this morning because of the “unpopularity of impeachment itself.” And when asked if Speaker Pelosi has done President Trump a favor for agreeing to the trade deal, McCarthy replied, “Agreeing to it, is doing her job. Waiting a year, she has weakened America.”
