House Riot Committee

House of Representatives minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, accused majority leader, Nancy Pelosi, of playing politics when she dismissed two of his appointees to the House committee concerning the attempted coup of January 6th.  McCarthy looks intelligent but looks could be deceiving.  His appointment of Jim Jordan, a staunch supporter of the former president, has to… Continue reading House Riot Committee
