The Republican leaders of Congress totally folded rather than show real leadership.
The real story is that Gaetz is angry that the truth got out. He is not angry that McCarthy lied. Gaetz is angry McCarthy couldn't maintain his lie.
The New York Times reported Thursday that GOP leaders had told fellow Republicans they believed President Donald Trump incited the Jan. 6 insurrection and would personally urge him to resign.
The GOP leader, who wants to be speaker, wouldn’t tell his members whether he would vote to certify Biden’s victory.
The top House Republican got caught in a lie that could threaten his career — but a little groveling before Trump can go a long way.
Certain recordings could complicate the California Republican's quest to become Speaker of the House, particularly if Trump comes out against him.
“No, that’s false. I never claimed responsibility,” Trump said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
This story was constructed with the SHARI Process:
- The StoryGraph Toolkit extracted URIs from the biggest story of the day from the StoryGraph service
- Hypercane performed the following steps:
- It accepted the list of original resource URIs from the output of the StoryGraph Toolkit, and queried the Memento Aggregator to find as many mementos as possible
- For resources that were not already mementos, it submitted them to web archives with ArchiveNow
- It analyzed all mementos to automatically discover the most frequent sumgrams and named entities present in the overall story
- It analyzed all images in these mementos to automatically select the best image for the overall story
- It then formatted the data for the story based on all of this input
- Raintale took the input from Hypercane and rendered the final product with information supplied by MementoEmbed
