Under repeated direct questioning from CNN’s Dana Bash, GOP House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy dodged, weaved, and diverted but ultimately refused to comment on the revelation that Trump dictated Junior’s lying letter about the Trump Tower meeting with Russians. McCarthy’s flailing came after Bash rolled clips of multiple Trump officials denying that Glorious Leader had dictated the letter.
More from the Washington Examiner:
McCarthy argued on Sunday that the Republican Party has “changed for the better” since President Trump took office. The California Republican was reacting to former House Speaker John Boehner saying last week that the Republican Party has given way to the “Trump party” and that the GOP is taking “taking a nap somewhere.” Asked on CNN’s “State of the Union” if he thought the Republican Party has improved over the years, McCarthy replied, “I would think it changed for the better.”
