Kevin McCarthy, the House Minority Leader, has stated that he would not be cooperating with the request from the House select committee that has been investigating the Capitol Riots. This declaration from him comes mere hours after the panel asked the Republican from California to voluntarily supply them with information, which would involve details about the state of mind of the former President during the Capitol Attack and the weeks that followed the attack.

In a statement made on the night on Wednesday, McCarthy stated that as a leader of the minority party, he had refused to participate with what he considered to be an abuse of power of the select committee that stained the institution. 

The Jan 6 Committee Won’t Find Any Support From Kevin McCarthy

Kevin McCarthy further charged that the committee was not really conducting a legitimate investigation, insisting that the rejection of several of his picks to serve the panel by Nancy Pelosi, the House Speaker, was a clear declaration of the committee’s bias- claiming that the committee was not serving any purpose- legislative, or otherwise.

Rep. Liz Cheney, the vice chairwoman of the committee, stated that they hadn’t completely ruled of the possibility of the committee sending out a subpoena to McCarthy in the future- announcing that they were currently weighing in their options. 

The letter sent to Kevin McCarthy from the House Committee is a clear indication that the panel conducting the investigation is now seeking cooperation from the top Republican that is present in the House as of this given moment. 

The letter also cited several comments made by Kevin McCarthy after the riot took place, including a couple of interviews where he discussed his conversations with the former President as the violence unfolded on the Capitol on January 6.
