US Capitol attack panel seeks McCarthy’s cooperation | First Thing

Home minority chief Kevin McCarthy accused the Home choose committee investigating the US Capitol assault of ‘abuse of energy’ as he denied the panel’s request for an interview

Good morning.

Yesterday the Home choose committee investigating the US Capitol assault formally requested the Republican Home minority chief, Kevin McCarthy, to cooperate with its inquiry into the 6 January revolt.

McCarthy responded late Wednesday that he wouldn’t cooperate with the investigation, setting the stage for a bitter political showdown.

McCarthy had spoken on to Donald Trump on the day the previous president’s supporters stormed the US Capitol to cease the certification of Joe Biden’s election win.

The committee’s request to McCarthy marks a major political second for the investigation as they look at potential felony conduct by the previous president.
