Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the leader of the House Republicans, believes President Trump “bears responsibility” for the Jan. 6 riot in the U.S. Capitol—but still doesn’t support impeachment, he said during the impeachment debate Wednesday.
“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding. These facts require immediate action of President Trump,” McCarthy said on the House floor.
“And the president’s immediate action also deserves congressional action, which is why I think a fact-finding commission and essential resolution would be prudent. Unfortunately, that is not where we are today,” he added.
