Kevin McCarthy, one of the most powerful figures in Washington D.C. and the current leader of the House GOP, went public with a promise that former Obama-era FBI officials, James Comey, and Andrew McCabe, will soon be facing criminal charges for what Congressman McCarthy describes as “an attempted coup” of a sitting President of the United States.
It is the first time such a high-ranking political figure has used that term even as millions of Trump supporters hope McCarthy and others will actually now follow through on their promises to hold the Deep State accountable.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., promised that guilty parties will be held accountable after Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz releases his report on the FBI’s alleged abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in the Russia investigation, and predicted that former bureau leaders James Comey and Andrew McCabe will face criminal charges after what he described as an attempted “coup” to take down President Trump.
“We came the closest ever to this country having a coup, and now we need accountability,” McCarthy told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “I respect this attorney general so greatly, that the way he has handled this, he believes in accountability, but more importantly, he believes in the rule of law.”
When asked if there will really be accountability, McCarthy promised, “Yes.”
