House Minority Leader Republican Kevin McCarthy on the one year anniversary of the Jan. 6 attacks in a letter to his GOP colleagues accused Democrats of using the days tragic domestic terrorist attack and events as a “partisan political weapon.”
“As we have said from the start, the actions of that day were lawless and as wrong as wrong can be. Our Capitol should never be compromised and those who broke the law deserve to face legal repercussions and full accountability. Unfortunately, one year later, the majority party seems no closer to answering the central question of how the Capitol was left so unprepared and what must be done to ensure it never happens again,” he added. “Instead, they are using it as a partisan political weapon to further divide our country.”The Hill

If he has information he wants to share with us and is willing to voluntarily come in, I’m not taking the invitation off the table,” Thompson said during an interview with ABC News.
“If Leader McCarthy has nothing to hide, he can voluntarily come before the committee.”
