DNC Statement on Kevin McCarthy’s Opposition to January 6 Commission

DNC Spokesperson Ammar Moussa released the following statement after GOP leader Kevin McCarthy announced his opposition to a bipartisan January 6 commission:

“Today’s announcement makes clear that the capitulation of the Republican Party to Donald Trump is complete — Kevin McCarthy might as well step aside and let Trump run the House GOP caucus. Instead of lifting a finger to help the American people or take a step toward bipartisanship, McCarthy continues to go to the mat to protect Trump instead of the truth, and is clearly terrified of what might come out about his involvement in the deadly insurrection at the Capitol and spreading Trump’s Big Lie. At every level, and in every corner of the country, the Republican Party is a raging disaster and tearing itself apart. In short, it’s the party of Trump.”
