The Republican leader in the US House of Representatives must testify about the storming of the Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump. A parliamentary committee investigating the matter summoned Kevin McCarthy and four other Republicans. American media reported it.
The five voluntarily refused to participate in the study. In addition to McCarthy of California, Ohio delegates Jim Jordan, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania. In less than a month, the commission plans to hold a series of public hearings.
Audio fragments showed, among other things, that McCarthy was very critical of Trump’s role in the storm at first, and even wanted him to resign. He later expressed his support for Trump again.
With the Capitol stormed on January 6, 2021, Trump supporters wanted to avoid confirming Joe Biden’s victory in the late 2020 presidential election. A Democratic-controlled House committee is investigating whether the White House played a role in the riots.
