On Wednesday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, of California, met with QAnon Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene but refused to act to stop her dangerous behavior, prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to issue a blistering response, condemning McCarthy for his lack of courage.
In her statement, Pelosi said that “after several conversations and literally running away from reporters, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Q-CA), made clear that he is refusing to take action against conspiracy theorist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. As a result, the House will continue with a vote to strip Greene of her seat on the esteemed House Committee on Education & Labor and House Committee on Budget. McCarthy’s failure to lead his party effectively hands the keys over to Greene — an anti-Semite, QAnon adherent and 9/11 Truther.”
The California Democrat went on to call McCarthy “cowardly” and noted he was breaking with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and the GOP Jewish Coalition.
