House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said during a call with House Republicans Monday night that President Donald Trump told him he bears some of the responsibility for the Washington, DC riots.
A source with knowledge of the matter confirmed to Breitbart News regarding McCarthy’s conversation with House Republicans.
The subsequent chaos from the Capitol building riots led to calls for Trump’s ouster from both Republicans and Democrats.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) subsequently called for Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. After Pence would not remove the president, Pelosi and House Democrats have moved to draft Articles of Impeachment against Trump.
