A new report details a “shouting match” that occurred between Trump and Rep. McCarthy during Jan. 6th riot

CNN published a report on Friday night in an apparent last-ditch attempt to influence the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.

That report details an “expletive-laced” telephone call that took place between then-President Trump and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as the January 6th riot was taking place. 

“Who the **** do you think you are talking to?”

CNN based its report on “Republican lawmakers familiar with the call.” One of these Republicans is Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), who claims that McCarthy described the details of the call to her shortly after it took place.

CNN, in its report, focuses on one line from the call between Trump and McCarthy. It is Trump saying, “Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.”

The New York Times, however, provides more information about the call. According to the Times, Herrera Beutler claims that McCarthy called Trump on January 6th asking him “to publicly and forcefully call off the riot.”

“Mr. Trump,” the Times reports, “replied by saying that antifa, not his supporters, was responsible. When Mr. McCarthy said that was not true, the former president was curt.”

It is at this point that Trump said, “Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.”

This then, according to CNN, set off a “shouting match” that included McCarthy saying, “Who the **** do you think you are talking to?”

It didn’t work

CNN did not even bother trying to hide the fact that it published this piece with the intention of influencing the Senate impeachment trial of Trump. The outlet writes:

As senators prepare to determine Trump’s fate, multiple Republicans thought the details of the call were important to the proceedings because they believe it paints a damning portrait of Trump’s lack of action during the attack.

CNN, however, failed in its goal as Trump was acquitted on Saturday by a vote of 57 to 43. As a result, Trump can run for office again, if he desires.

Trump responded with a statement in which he called this latest impeachment “another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country.” Trump also hinted at his future plans, but did not make clear whether those plans include another political run.

Neither Trump nor McCarthy has commented on this latest reporting about their January 6th phone call. McCarthy, though, in the past, has touched upon it, placing at least some of the blame for the Capitol riot on Trump.

  1. There were antifa and BLM people there. Congress knew a mob was coming. The capitol police turned down an offer before 6 Jan for 10 K Nat’l G troops.

    1. I’m confused. If President Trump was giving a speech while the break in occurred at the capital and was over by the time he finished the speech…how did McCarthy have a phone conversation with Trump about stopping what already was over?

  2. I used to think McCarthy was a good guy. Now, i’m Not so sure. It seems he goes which ever way the beneficial winds blow for him. I hope i’m Wrong, future behaviour will tell all. He appeared to be on the side of the people, I hope that is true, but he needs to lead the republicans in congress to stop or impede piglosi’s onslaught against the Republican congressmen and women. Protect your people mr. McCarthy!

    1. Why do you think the Democrats suddenly decided not to call witnesses? Because the whole story was a made for impeachment hoax by CNN , McCarthy denied the contents of the conversation. What CNN lie nah never lol

      Truth is the amount for both impeachment cost by my accounting is closer to 500,000. The cost for two years of running the capital building with salaries of the four hundred ten congress men an woman plus all their aids is closer to two hundred million add to that security, maintenance , supplies to mention just a few. All while the Democrats conducted zero business to serve the people.

  4. Looks like the bad guys all showed exactly who they really are because they believe Biden is in charge now…These Republicans are no better than the Dems and both parties are one and the same…fascists. They all need to be primaried out of office.

    1. Agree. It is easier for the spineless so called republicans to go along with the communistcrats than to stand for what OUR country is for…
      FREEDOM and OUR CONSTITUTION❗Vote them out❗

  5. I agree 100%. These people really need to be gone. I used to like Nikki Haley but not anymore. Her comments went beyond the pale. Mitch McConnell needs to be removed from his leadership position at the very least for his post acquittal comments.

  6. I’m afraid our “distinguished” (not) media are still publishing (as truth) second hand information. Next week they’ll have President Trump coming down in a flying saucer to conquer the world. Of course, they will be there to save us — goody, goody :^)

  7. I’ve read these comments. These clowns in Congress ARE EMPLOYED BY THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERRS, NOT THE REVERSE. THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE WHERE YOU GET PAID FOR DOING A HORRIBLE JOB. VOTE THESE CLOWNS OUT COME NOVEMBER.
    REMEMBER PUSH FOR TERM LIMITS-DRAIN THE SWAMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Most of the Old Republicans need to be replaced with some new republicans that have a backbone to stand up for the American people and stand up against the left that’s trying to destroy this great country. They want to control what you watch on the fake news and yes it is very fake and that’s how communism starts.

  9. What’s really sad is that all these people that are always wanting these impeachments….are the very ones that need to be impeached…. and aren’t these idiots supposed to be lawyers or at least lawmakers well there ain’t no law or any kind of resemblance of due process… I just can’t understand why all the Republicans sat around with their thumbs in their butt when we had so many of the breaking the laws and some even to the point of committing treason but not one of them has been held accountable

  10. REPUBLICANS GET OUT THERE IN THE
    HOUSE AND SENATE AND FIGHT!!!
    DON’T ALLOW DEMOCRATS TO GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING, THEY DO ALL THE BAD THINGS THEN TRY TO BLAME REPUBLICANS
    HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE RIGHT NOW!!

  11. Sad! A friend of mine who lives in Australia stated that their country is in total SHOCK how the Unites States has treated THEIR President. They are not a fan of President Trump bc of the fake news but can not believe how Pelosi could rip up the speech behind the Presidents back with NO ramifications yet they have scrutinized the President since day one. They can not believe how late night talk show host & Hollywood actors can disrespect the President in front of the WORLD with no legal recourse. They are also in shock that no investigation was underway into Hunter Biden’s ties to the Ukraine an China. These comments made me speechless not knowing how to respond. Our government does not realize the WORLD is watching the most powerful country in the world disrespect the most powerful leader in the world. I think it is time “WE THE PEOPLE” demand some resignations or they are dismissed of their duties. Agree?

  12. Well, it seems that Australia, knows more about our country than a lot of our citizens. Thank you Lois Adams for your post, maybe more will read it and wake up. Our country is going down the tubes because of stupidity.
