Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Fox’s Chris Wallace Grills Kevin McCarthy Over Rumored ‘Witness Tampering’ Phone Call With Trump Over Capitol Riots”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), spoke about his conversations with former President Donald Trump during and after the January 6th riots at the Capitol.
During the storming of the U.S. Capitol, McCarthy allegedly implored Trump to call off the rioters in a phone call, and Trump responded “Well Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.” Fox News’ Chris Wallace asked McCarthy if that’s what happened during an interview on Fox News Sunday, though the congressman refused to give the question a straight answer.
“I was the first person to contact him when the riots were going on,” McCarthy said. “When he ended the call, he was telling me he will put something out to make sure to stop this. And that’s what he did. He put a video out later.
Wallace pointed out that the president’s message to his supporters was put out “quite a lot later,” and “it was a pretty weak video.” He asked once more if Trump admonished McCarthy during their call, and again, McCarthy dodged the question.
“My conversations with the president are my conversations with the president,” he said. “I engaged in the idea that we could stop what was going on inside the Capitol at that moment in time, the president said he would help.”
