I may simply say that Mr. McCarthy’s rationalizations, justifications hold shifting. The cardinal sin seems to be that I led the impeachment of his grasp in mar-a-lago, for withholding a whole bunch of hundreds of thousands of {dollars} in army help in Ukraine, a nation at warfare with Russia as a way to extort that nation into serving to Donald Trump’s re-election marketing campaign. We proved these info and obtained the primary bipartisan vote within the Senate in historical past to take away a president. Kevin McCarthy calls {that a} hoax. Nicely, it was not a hoax.

However he’ll do the previous president’s bidding. That is one thing the previous president desires. I can guarantee you if the previous president or Kevin McCarthy believes that that is going to cease any of us from combating to guard our democracy, they’re going to seek out out that the other is true. It solely will intensify our dedication to doing so.

I wish to point out with respect to Mr. Swalwell additionally that as he indicated, I sat in on that briefing. Mr. Swalwell has served honorably on our committee. By no means accused of any wrongdoing. This can be a patently unfair smear by Mr. McCarthy. However that’s what he traffics in. That’s what we’re seeing.
