Eric Swalwell rips Kevin McCarthy

Democratic congressman Eric Swalwell on Saturday unloaded on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and “radical Republicans as he compared the “Justice for J6” rally to a “9/11 vigil for the hijackers.”

The California lawmaker Democrat shared his views on this weekend’s rally on Twitter on Saturday as attendees prepared to gather outside the U.S. Capitol in Washington to support rioters facing charges related to the January 6 attack at the same location.

He said: “Blessed by @GOPLeader McCarthy, radical Republicans are celebrating cop killers and terrorists at the U.S. Capitol.

“McCarthy condones this as many injured Jan. 6 officers have not yet returned to work. This is like holding a 9/11 vigil…for the hijackers. Nice work, Kevin.”

The tweet has since been liked more than 24,800 times and has been retweeted on more than 7,792 occasions.

McCarthy did not return a Daily Boulder request for comment.
