GOP establishment leader Kevin McCarthy plotted with Liz Cheney to force President Trump out of office by convincing him to resign. The conversation was captured in audio that was later leaked to reporters from The New York Times, and now resurfaces as McCarthy faces massive conservative resistance to his speakership campaign.
“Are you hearing that he might resign? Is there any reason to think that might happen?” Liz Cheney asked Kevin McCarthy in the audio recording, which came as uni-party politicians scrambled to make anti-Trump political hay out of the January 6th, 2021 demonstrations against election fraud and the certification of contested election results.
“I’ve had a few discussions,” McCarthy replied. “My gut tells me no. I’m seriously thinking of having that conversation with him tonight. I haven’t talked to him in a couple [of] days.”
“From what I know of him, I mean you guys all know him too, do you think he’d ever back away?” McCarthy asked, as he plotted with Liz Cheney and others to push President Trump out of the Oval Office, and put the finishing touches on the steal of 2020.
“The only discussions I would have with him is that I think this will pass, and it would be my recommendation [Trump] should resign,” McCarthy went on to say, adding that he also had to speak with the Democrats, and get some guidance from his uni-party colleagues.
“I mean, that would be my take, but I don’t think he would take it. But I don’t know,” said McCarthy in the flashback audio.
Audio: Kevin McCarthy and Liz Cheney Plot to Push President Trump Out of Office:
The audio was released earlier this year, ahead of the midterms, and mainly floated around Democrat media circles, as the left showed off McCarthy’s remarks like a trophy of disloyalty towards President Trump and the American People.
Before the anti-Trump McCarthy audio was released, the comments were cited in New York Times reporting, which McCarthy claimed was “totally false and wrong,” before audio proved that it was he, actually, who was “totally false and wrong” in denying he’d plotted with Liz Cheney to get rid of President Trump.
Though McCarthy and his GOP establishment, including Marjorie Taylor Greene, have been making the media rounds claiming that McCarthy is America’s “speaker-elect,” significant opposition to his gavel quest threatens to make an America First Patriot the next leader of Congress.
